Daily Painting Practice - Epitaph for an art blog

The times they are a changin'.

Well it's been almost ten years since I first started Daily Painting Practice.  But everything in life has an ending, and so it is with my blogging.   The ease of Facebook is an evil tonic to someone like me who suffers from LAPS ( Lazy Art Posting Syndrome) and so I find myself surrendering to the tides of technology. 
You'll still be able to find my adventures in art on (My Facebook Page) or (on my website). So please join me there in my blogging after life.

Here are some of my thoughts and some thoughts from a few people I spoke with about the passing of Daily Painting Practice. 

All palettes must be cleaned at some point.
Every tube runs out of paint.
Brushes wear out and so do art blogs.
Never cry over spilled art blogs.
Old art blogs never die... they just get dropped by goggle search.
 There is a place where all good art blogs go.... ( The NSA)

Words of comfort by some friends of Daily Painting Practice.
“Well, what can I tell you? Life in the wide world goes on much as it has this past Age, full of its own comings and goings, scarcely aware of the existence of Art Blogs, for which I am very thankful.”-Gandalf
"Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the Computer." -Dumbledore

"...Art should be independent of all clap-trap..."  -James Whistler

This isn't the end. Go Paint!-Peter Yesis

Always sad to see a blog close down - especially one that's been going for a long time.

Your "Facebook Page" looks an awful lot like a Facebook Account (only accounts have Friends). You'd so much better with a proper Facebook Page and then other pages could like you. It's additional to an account.

This is my Facebook Page if you want to compare it with an account - see
