Keeping It Real...

Sales are picking up again for us on our eBay site. Things are still pretty slow on Yessy and other online venues. I think most people looking online for original art automatically pick eBay. Not that I am an expert at where people shop for their art online.

The Zatloukal Original Art group will display and offer some of our original art for sale at the Meadowlark Coffee Cafe, locally, during the months of November and December. It will be our first local show, so we will see how it goes.

Since this blog is designed for information concerning all of the Zatloukal Original Art group, several of the artists have recently decided to start personal blogs and sites. We will include links to those sites, for any of the artists wishing to 'share', on our website in the near future.

Also, I will be creating a site, sometime in the future, dedicated to Patrick E. Zatloukal. I will be sharing some of his original poetry, paintings, and interesting bits and pieces about the person who left such a positive impact on so many lives. A link to that site will also be included in our website.

Until next time, we will continue to try to 'keep it real...'

We're "hanging in there..."

It has been a very long and hard year, this past one. We have endured the loss of loved ones during our lifetime, but this loss has been the hardest. We have all had great difficulty staying focused and trying to keep our 'heads on straight'. But, we're "hanging in there.."
All of the artists, who are part of the Zatloukal Original Art Group, have dedicated our work and each painting we do to the loving memory of husband, father and father-in-law, Patrick E. Zatloukal. His continuous encouragement and loving presence are greatly missed.
