Watch the Process

     An exciting new opportunity has just been made available by artist Mia DeLode.  Collectors can watch a painting come to life by going to Mia’s new Facebook Fan page and becoming a fan!  She is downloading an image of a painting’s progress after each painting session.

   Fans have been adding comments and title suggestions as they watch the first sketch develop in stages and then into the finished product.  “I love doing “Quick Draws”, says Mia, “and this is a bit like that  except I  get   so   involved 

with the process that I’m still having to remind myself to get that image taken after the painting session.”  She is just getting started on this venture and, knowing how Mia works to make dreams come true, it is bound to become a very popular page.

   I’m having fun with this,” confesses Mia.  “The responses have been wonderfully positive and I’m thrilled, humbled, and eager to get more paint on the canvas”.

     To check this out for yourself, go to become a fan, and enjoy!

Mia has started a new series about herding sheep and no one is better equipped to tell the story!  Born into a sheep ranching family, Mia herded sheep for a large part of her life before purchasing her own ranch in the mid 90’s.  “I never thought there would be a time when sheep were not a big part of my life and I guess that is still true today even though I am out of the actual sheep business.”
