Previous issues

Below are the two most recent issues and the very first one, which introduced the newsletter.

About Chris (and the newsletter)

I'm a Kiwi, Christian, husband, dad, and slowly-improving painter.

In my newsletter, I write about my painting progress and share new work. I also share quotes, links, and other bits and pieces on art and faith.

I don't currently use the newsletter to sell anything, but in the future, if I become a good enough painter, I might offer artwork for sale. I think that’ll be a while off though. And I’ll never be a pushy salesman.

You can contact me using the form at the bottom of the page.

Thanks for reading! 🎨🖌️😊

Privacy policy

[Last updated: 15 April 2021]

Most of this should be fairly obvious and expected these days, but for the sake of clarity (and the law):

  • When you sign up to receive my newsletter, I store your first name and email address using an email-marketing service called MailerLite. I do this so I can deliver the newsletter to you and, occasionally, if it seems appropriate, send you personalised communications. I might do this, for example, to check that you still want to receive the newsletter (if you haven't opened it in a while) or to respond when you send me a comment or question about the newsletter or my work. I might also do it if I have some extra news related to my artistic endeavours.

  • Aside from your first name and email address, MailerLite records data such as your IP address, the city you live in, the date and time you subscribed, the emails you open, and the links you click. Some of these are for the operation of the service, and some (such as opens and clicks) are for my benefit, so I can better tailor the newsletters I send out. For full details of the data MailerLite processes, and the how and why, see the MailerLite Privacy Policy.
  • Apart from with MailerLite, I will never, without your permission, share your information with anyone else.

  • You can opt out of my emails at any time, either by clicking the Unsubscribe link at the bottom of an email or contacting me (using the form below) and asking me to remove you from my mailing list. I’ll do that within 10 days.

  • If you need to review or edit any of the data I keep about you, you can contact me using the form below. MailerLite has tools that allow me to do that for you.

  • If you contact me through my contact form, or in reply to an email newsletter, I may store our correspondence for future reference in Fastmail.

  • My website and newsletter aren't intended for children under 13. If you’re under 13, please don’t enter any personal information.

  • If I make any significant changes to this privacy policy, I’ll email you about it.

Above all else, I deeply appreciate your trust and your attention. I hope you enjoy the newsletter and get a lot out of it.
