Dear friends, fans, collectors and fellow artists…
In favor of spending a lot more quality time in the studio, I’ve decided to close down my Facebook page and several other Social Media sites at the end of this month. This WordPress blog will change a bit too—and for the better! You’ll see more posts about works-in-progress, and about the inspirations and musings behind the paintings. I’ll also be letting readers know when there’s new work for sale in the Etsy shop.
If you’d like to stay abreast of any of those happenings, I invite you to follow along via the RSS feed button (in the right sidebar) to receive blog post updates in your email box.
To all of you who have visited me here and on Facebook (and especially to my current blog and Facebook followers), I thank you for your many comments and generous encouragement over the last several years. I look forward to more years of making, sharing and talking about creativity and Life with you!
In the meantime, I’d like to put this little quote out there as food for thought, relative to Marketing and the Social Media frenzy:
If you sit in the Silence, wherever it is your own will come to you. Sit right down in the middle of the woods and let them beat a pathway to your door, for what God sees in secret is rewarded openly. The state of consciousness that you are is made manifest. Joel S. Goldsmith

9/2014 update: Alas for my anti-social and anti-tech tendencies, the observation of traffic statistics in my shop and websites indicated that Facebook was a major source of visitors and a good way to disseminate news about my art. So, reluctantly, I reinstated my Facebook presence. Aside from this blog, following me at Susan Sorrell Hill’s Art on Facebook will keep you abreast of what’s happening in my little neck of the art world. (I’m still spending more time in the studio and less time doing Social Media chores…and leaning even more on Joel S. Goldsmith’s advice above). Life is a work-in-progress, is it not? Thanks for stopping by!
