For the past few years Tumblr has been a good home to The Watercolor Gallery and its community of over 1,500 members, hundreds of thousands of visitors, and hundreds of featured artists. However, I’ve always loved WordPress and thought now was a good time to move The Watercolor Gallery onto a much more robust content management system so that the gallery was better suited for a brighter future.
I chose to move to WordPress.com, rather than managing WordPress myself, because of the stability, automatic backups, and security features that come – for free – by choosing to use this hosted solution. I never have to worry about updating WordPress again. And even with the over two year archive of paintings – the gallery only consumes 2% of the storage space that WordPress.com offers for free. What a great deal!
It has taken a few days to make the move but I’m really happy that I did.
If you’re new to The Watercolor Gallery I have a few highlights that you may want to see in the gallery. First, here are the interviews that I’ve conducted over the last few years with watercolorists from all over the world.
- Kannika Soonthornyankit in Bangkok, Thailand.
- Tina Bohlman in Waxahachie, Texas.
- Rod Buckle in Scarborough, England.
- Reza Rasoli in Los Angeles, California.
- Diane Geoghegan in Jerome, Arizona.
- Andrew Yeroshewych in Odessa, Ukraine.
- Russ Maxwell in Geneva, Switzerland.
- Alison Nicholls in Port Chester, New York.
- Robin Neudorfer in Sierra Madre, CA.
- Janis McElmurry in Lansing, Michigan.
- Vinita Pappas in Oregon.
- Gabrielle Rose in San Francisco, California.
- Keinyo White in Washington, D.C. & New Zealand.
In addition to the above interviews each of these and hundreds of other artists have been featured in the gallery. Take a look through the features category, or perhaps through some of the tags like portrait, animals, different, and music.
