Okay, I've done it. A year later than I had planned (that whole having a baby thing just interrupts everything :D), I now have my own blog on my own website with my own domain name.

Gumnut Inspirations

Eventually I will be moving from this blog to my new website. I set up Blogger because at the time I didn't have the time to delve into Wordpress. I still don't, but I fluffed my way around parental duties and I am now entering 2011 with a new website, new logo and a new mission to make something of my artwork.

And I couldn't have come as far as I have without all of you.  You've all been a fantastic support to me over the past six months (yes, I've been here six months now). I've managed to do more artwork in those six months than I have done in the past ten years. My entry into the creative blogosphere was like finding the path I lost thirty odd years ago. Thank you for all your wonderful support.

In return, I hope to help a few of you with a little inspiration. Several of you have expressed an interest in my art experiments, so I've made that the focus of my new blog - Exploration to find Inspiration. I'm going to document my experiments like the bubble paintings and my other painting experiments in the hope that some of you might gain some inspiration from my dabblings. So I would love for you to come and join me over on my website. I will be here for a little while longer, but eventually I will be retiring this blog and I'd hate to lose you, so please join me. I've even set up Google Friend Connect over there to make you feel at home :D

In any case, I wish you all a very Happy New Year as Adelaide has slipped into 2011 and I'm waving at most of you from the future. Here's hoping 2011 is even more arty than its predecessor.

  1. Hi Nutty. Congrats on the whole new site and logo. I am going to check it out but just want to wish you a happy and healthy new year!

  2. Congratulations on your new site! So very exciting (and inspiring in itself - a website is on my creative goals list for 2011)

    Hope you're enjoying your new year... I'll catch up in about 7 1/2 hours! Hee hee


  3. Thanks to both of you for your well wishes, and I hope you both had a great New Years. You've both been great to me this last six months and I hope to see you around lots in this new year.
