Brrrr...It's cold outside

Hello everyone! This is my first post on my new blog for my new website. Wow, a lot of new things going on. Feels great though to do new things and break out of the ordinary, makes you feel alive. I tell you what also makes you feel alive...it's changes in temperature. I can remember not long ago that it was so hot and humid that I could barely stand it, but now it is fall weather, cold and dry. Oh well, may be a little cold, but it's not that bad, just need to acclimate to the new season.

Been working on the computer a lot lately fixing up my website that the love of my life made for me. She made it a while ago but never completely finished it. We only recently just published it to the web. Right now we are working on the blog page which brings me to where I am now. Writing my first blog to you all. I hope you like the look of it, we spent a long time working to get it to have the same look and feel as my website. I think we are pretty much done, maybe a few changes here and there, but not much.

Not much time to paint lately, plus my art supplies are not near me to use. Doesn't matter much anyway since it's important that we get my website done. Which for us is just as fun since it is just another form of creating art. Soon though I hope to get back to my painting. I have the scene roughed out on canvas, just need to get a feel for it. Make sure the image in my mind is clear so that I can paint the story so that it's memorable. I sure hope you will all enjoy it as much as I do painting it.

I will try to post weekly, maybe more or less. New to this blog thing so I don't know how much time I have available. I guess we should get back to work on my site, thanks for stopping on by and I hope you come back often. Also be sure to check out my gallery at www.jonathonmelhus.com and enjoy my portfolio.

Take care and God Bless! ~Jonathon
