Hope you are doing good. I am back with quarterly newsletter of mithilapaintings.com for April –June 2010 .
Last quarter was very eventful and many more artists got associated with www.mithilapaintings.com. Some of them were successful in selling their paintings through this website and some of them were able to get long term contract with some corporate clients. Hope this trend continues in the coming quarter as well and Mithila paintings and its artists grow together.
I would like to discuss few things here that will help us organise and grow in a proper manner in future.
The first thing that i would like to convey is about the contents of this website. I got mails from people claiming about the copyright violation of contents published on this site and demanded to remove them as soon as possible and they produced the links from where those contents were taken, and i had no option but to remove them from the website. I would like to request to people who are contributing towards this site by writing the articles or sending the paintings images that PLEASE DO NOT COPY THE CONTENTS OR IMAGES FROM OTHER SITE and send us. Try to write in your language and try to send the images that is taken by you. It will help making our own identity and we will feel proud. If you see this website, you might feel that there are some missing contents and I had to remove them because they were asked to be removed by the original owners of those contents.

The second point i would like to tell you is about the exhibition we are planning to have in Ludhiana, Punjab. We are looking for around 10 Artists who can go and exhibit their art and also make paintings at the venue on demand. The whole process will take around 7-10 days. and the arrangement for food & lodging will be provided by us in a very good place with all the facilities.
