Various Artists - Picture from This Colossal

Did you know that the Sketchbook Project has a Pen-Pal Painting Exchange? They do! This Colossal has a story about it here

Over at Muddy Waters Art Collective, there's an interesting post on committing to your art. I found it helpful, perhaps you will too! Read that here

And Art News.com has an article about the "Changing Complex Profile of Black Abstract Painters".  I didn't know we had our own "movement" (nor did I know that we're apparently sectioned off into a group by ourselves instead of being included with all abstract painters, but there's lots I don't know. *harrumph*). Anyway, the article is interesting and introduced me to artists I didn't know about. Read about that here

  1. Hi Kit. Life is so chaotic right now getting things ready for the estate sale that I don't have time to click on the link but I DO like the stuffed head and wanted you to know I am still reading your blog!!

  2. I love this post and the idea of a weekly link post! I wish I had leisure time like this to read all my fav blogs all the time! This week when they asked me three that I liked the best - you were in my top three :)

  3. Just wanted to let you know that I forwarded the Muddy Waters link to my daughter who is doing Illustration at Uni.
    I send her so much stuff and usually get very little response but she did take the time to tell me that she found it interesting.
    I don't know where you find the time to collect all these links but keep up the good work!


So, apparently I'm open for business again. :) Say hi if you like!
