What Have I Done To My Site?

Just a quick note to let you know what’s happening in a nutshell. As you can see, this artist’s web site has completely changed and I’m pretty much starting over from scratch. Reason: I’ve canceled my Adobe account, so no more Lightroom, Photoshop and no more ‘free’ web site. I’m making the move to open source. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now. And I feel now is a good time, as it will coincide with my shift in my art’s focus from painting to pyrography.

How does this effect my website and my artwork?

It’s going to be Gimp, Darktable, Scribus and most importantly, WordPress from here on in. This is a huge learning curve for me, so please be patient, as I have to rebuild my site from scratch. My first priority will be getting my ecommerce store up and running, so you guys can purchase my artwork online. I already have one item up for sale, and will be adding more very shortly. In the meantime, please follow me on Instagram and check back here often for updates. Thanks for your patience as I make the cross over to open source.

Owl Art Pyrography on Coffee Table

Here are some photos of a coffee table that I built at Pompanoosuc Mills, and then burned with an original owl design. The coffee table is Cherry, 36″ X 22″ X 16.” The pyrography art is 12″ in diameter. This piece will be on display at the Annual Pompanoosuc Mills Tent Sale, Memorial Day Weekend. Come by and take a look, if you are in the area. Artwork is entitled The Guardian, and is © 2019 Jay Trefethen. All rights reserved.

The Night Watch
