    1. Thank you for the interest Tbcreation!! Thanks to your request I investigated and realized that I didn't have a RSS/Subscribe feature like I thought I had so I now activated that in the right side bar of the site!

      You can scroll down and just above the Facebook widget for my "DutzWorks - The Art of Derrick Utz" you will now see a widget that says "Subscribe to DutzWorks!"

      Thank you for the great question and for being excited about what I am making here!

      My best to you!
