Download this month’s Lake Norman calendar here
One of my favorite artists, marti garaughty was generous enough to allow me to use one of his recent paintings as this month’s calendar. All I can say is WOW! But there is more to this story. Marti is also the creative and tech wiz behind this blog, a role he generously took on back in about 2007. I first met marti on a real estate bloggers site called ActiveRain back in 2006 where he shared brilliant marketing insights and occasionally one of his latest paintings. About a year after launching this Lake Norman real estate blog the company who hosted it went under and the server closed without warning. It was nearly catastrophic for a number of us who had very successful blogs with lots of content. I turned to marti and he spent almost a full month saving all of my data, moving it to a new server and redesigning it. It was a huge undertaking but he did it with grace, patience and talent. Since then he has been kind enough to continue to oversee all of the behind the scenes aspects of my site as well as a number of major redesigns to keep it current and mobile friendly. It is an honor to be able to offer you this special calendar!
To make your desktop calendar just click on the link above and then right click and select “set as background”.
As a very special bonus, marti created a high resolution version that you can print!
If you have access to a good inkjet printer and would like a free, hi-res version of this painting, go to:
– click on the “Download” button
– and simply print it out using your inkjet printer
– for best results, use glossy photo paper sized 8 1/2″ X 11″ or 11″ X 14″
Frame it and enjoy!”
I would love to use one of your favorite photos depicting life here in Lake Norman. (Optimum size is a landscape photo about 2MB or about 1600 x 1200 pixels). I will give a $25 Gas Card to anyone who provides a photo that I use as one of my monthly calendars. If you’d like to submit a photo or an idea for a future calendar, please send it to…firstname.lastname@example.org
