I mean, I already have this blog, an author webpage, a Facebook Page, a Facebook Author Page, an Instagram, and a Twitter account. But no - I needed a webpage just for my art. You know why? People kept asking me about it. "Do you have an online gallery?" "Where can I see your art?" and I didn't have one. Well - I do now.
Here's the address: www.juliec0.wix.com/juliecphillipps

There's an About Page - so this is the pic I used. This is from a photo shoot I did with a wonderful photographer Phyllis Meredith a couple years ago.
I made the page on Wix.Com. It was pretty freaking easy. You just find a template that works for you and pop your stuff in. I did not freak out once. Not once! (And, more importantly, I did not ask my husband for help.)
Now I have a place to show off my watercolors, collages, and all of the other fun stuff I do from time to time. Here are a few of the pieces I featured.

In other news I am officially done making 30 monsters for the Halloween Stroll Monster Hunt in town. I promised 30. I've made 30. Now, I will make more to sell. It's not a high profit art sale, but I should make enough money to cover the supplies I bought and a little extra scratch.
The heat has passed and we are into some glorious 70's. Ahhhhhhh. Autumn! My favorite season!
(And I've almost finished the poncho I've been knitting.)
Magoo and I have seen a few movies recently:
The Babadook (on Netflix) - Ooooooo so creepy. So scary. We stopped watching every time it got too intense. It took us three days to finish it. It's about a single mom at her wits end with her high-energy boy who finds a very creepy picture book.
The Gift (in theaters) - Really good and slightly creepy psychological thriller. Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall play a married couple that moves back to Bateman's hometown where they meet a man who knew Bateman in high school - and this dude is clingy. I screamed twice - but it's not a horror film. It's a thriller.
Mad Max: Fury Road (Amazon on Demand) - Do you watch movies and think "I want more car chases in the desert!" Well, this is the movie for you. It was 85% car chases in the desert. And they put Max in so they could call it a Mad Max movie, but it's really Charlize Theron's story. You could totally do it without Max - and that's kinda a negative issue for me. But - it was OK. And there were definitely some cool cars, cool stunts, and you gotta love a truck with an dangling electric guitar player who's instrument shoots fire.
Thanks so much for stopping in! Check out the new webpage is you want to see more art - all in one place!
Have a great week!
