Check out our new feature!

On the sidebar to the left, you will see The Faces of ArtChix, a new section for our blog. When you click on the link in this section, it will take you to a slideshow of our individual ArtChix members. The photos will be replaced with newer, closer focus ones so our faces will be more visible. What do you think? Eventually, the sidebar will include a link to a slideshow of our combined works, but this Blog Mistress will have to figure out how to label each painting with the artist's name, etc.
