Recently I was featured on the fantastic artistaday.com site. These days getting featured on a good blog results in better exposure than a National newspaper.
Artistaday.com has a twitter following of over 11k however it appears that the vast majority of their exposure comes from pinterest. As the above image shows, my feature has been shared on social media sites 18 304 times and over 17k of those has been Pinterest. If you doubt the value of this, you may be interested to hear that someone from California was 1st introduced to my work through this image shared on pinterest which brought her to artistaday and very quickly purchased my Painting featured, ‘Primary Sky’. It has now arrived and she wrote me a great e-mail of thanks:
“…We have only just now opened your package containing “Primary Sky”. I cannot express in words how absolutely thrilled we are with the painting! It is absolutely magnificent! It arrived in perfect condition and is so much more beautiful than I could have hoped. You are extremely talented and have a very special gift. There simply are no words to let you know how happy I am right now. I simply LOVE it!….”
It’s great that people so far afield can discover something special through the world of social media and of course great that my work reaches those who appreciate it all over the world.
The world is changing, social media is taking over and the world of blogging and content management systems (CMS) are at the heart of it. This is the reason my site recently has changed over to a CMS blog format. It’s amazing what social media can do, just check out my blog about when my work was featured on screens in Times Square New York (pictured right).

Thanks to all who rate me 5 out of 5. It’s great to have some Scottish landscape painting in the top 10 (as it stands!)
