I will return to Daily Painting Practice on January 22 2007. Lots of people are making resolutions this time of year and I have my own to work on. I will not be posting for the next 3 weeks. I am starting quite a few new projects in 2007 and I need to adjust my schedue and work habits a bit. One truth is I have become addicted to reading artist's blogs and I need to get my head out of the computer and into the studio. Not to worry though-
While I am away in art blog rehab, I hope you will enjoy some of the sites that got me hooked. Warning these blogs can be addictive!
In addition to the links on my blog I highly recommend these. For your daily dose of art history and some fascinating information try these wonderful blogs: First,(Lines and Colors) - you could spend hours on this site alone. (Your Daily Art) is for a quick hit of art history and(Making a Mark) will feed you a dose of interesting topics.
For those interested in a little different perspective and like to read about the business side of art try looking at the(Intrepid Art Collector) and (Art Biz Blog).
If I need a place to remind me about how to enjoy art I often fall back to (Anthony Zierhut). Three other places to go to see and learn how art can fill your life are(One mile from home) and (Studio Notes) and (Life Plein Air).
But here is my holy grail and the winner of the best site for learning to be an artist. Anyone who says " I want to be an artist but I can't afford art school" will see what it is really like to dedicate yourself to practice. This is the best art school on the internet. I have been following (Learning to See) since Paul started posting. His dedication is humbling and inspirational at the same time. I have learned so much from this guy. I feel I owe him my first born....( my first born is grown and married and may see this as an opportunity to travel to England)
Anyway- enjoy these while I am away from my computer. I'm going cold turkey. Feel free to leave comments, I would like to hear what you think of these blogs. Back soon!
