A new website

It’s been ages that I’ve been thinking about — and finally got around to creating — a new website for my work. I’m so excited to launch it today. The project started with me hoping to hire someone to help me, but that didn’t really work out, so I ended up doing it myself. I’ve been adding bits to it for the past month or so, and there are still sections to come, but I’m pleased to have it at a stage that’s ready for viewing.

You’ll find galleries of paintings, galleries of sketches and a section of paintings for sale. In the next little while I’ll be adding a workshop section, as well as one for materials. Have a look at the site by clicking on the image below or going to http://www.blaukopfwatercolours.com.

This doesn’t mean anything will change with my blog. It will still be the place where I’ll post my day-to-day stuff, whereas the new website will mostly be for finished work. If you have comments or would like to see anything else on the site, let me know.

    Shari, I love your work! I also love watercolor. You inspire me to paint each day as I no longer work due to living with cancer, treatments and the whole of everything that entails. Though I am inspired, my energy is not always there and so getting an email with your latest painting is just great! Good luck with your new site. Thanks for sharing your work each day!

    Congratulations! The site looks beautiful.

    The website is concise and wonderful. You did a great job and it reflects both you and your awesome work. I shall be pleased to have an uncomplicated place to go to relish your work. And thanks for commemorating Mr. Whitney in it! He was indeed a special man.

    • Thanks for writing Dee. Indeed, Mr Whitney was very special and I’m thankful that I was able to study with him. I was in university at the time and lucky that my parents encouraged me to paint go to his workshops.

  32. Joan says:

    Your website is drool worthy. You’ve done a grand job of presenting your paintings, sketches…I love your generousity in sharing the whole of your experience with watercolor with us. The cover painting on your website is lovely! Can’t wait to see what your online workshop looks like.

    Congrtulations. What a beautiful website. Thanks for putting all of your great art together in one single place.

  35. Dominique Gaillard says:

    Outstanding website !! Congratulations on your creativity and thank you for sharing daily.
    the tulips did us a lot of good, helping us wait patiently for spring. It’s really great to be able to see all of your fantastic watercolours one after another, a feast for the eye and a lesson in the medium with such beautiful work to peruse. Bravo !
    Best, Dominique

    • Merci Dominique. Ah, those tulips lasted a full week in my house and I enjoyed them every day. Today I saw the tiniest bits of hosta poking through the ground in a few places where the snow had melted. But alas, more snow to come this weekend…

  36. Joni Vallon says:

    Awesome! So great to see all your fabulous works at the click of a mouse. And the site itself is visually clean and airy.

  37. ssmagoo says:

    Wow! It looks great. Did you do that in wordpress?I love your work.Scott

    • Thanks so much Scott. No, my blog is in WordPress but my website was created on Squarespace. I like their templates very much and they have a commerce component which is very easy to use.

  38. Mary says:

    Shari – I saw on your website that you studied with Edgar Whitney and now of course I can see his influence in your work. So I want to tell you that I may not have Edgar Whitney in my ear but I have Shari Blaukopf in my mind and in my artist’s heart – seriously you’ve had a big effect on my life and I’ve made a new level of commitment to my painting and especially to spending time most everyday sketching and painting in my journal – it feeds my soul! I didn’t realize that I’d been starving. Thank you for sharing your journey with us. It’s made a real difference for me. Any thoughts on making a DVD?…

    • HI Mary, Thank you so much for writing. I’m always happy to hear when people take up painting in a more serious way. Even if you have just a little bit of time each day, those minutes will be well spent. Stay tuned for some news about online lessons from me in early summer…
