oof, chores getting done this weekend, and so many little
things which have piled up over the last month or two.
The list is ridiculously long, but I'm getting through
it. and I'm sure you don't want to hear about it!! :)
When the mundanities drive me crazy, of course I turn to
art as my resting point. Some of my favorite web sites:
Sketching In Nature
Award winning group blog and the art is just stunning!
I love the fact that it's very International as well...
Maree posts from South Africa, and her current spring/summer
drawings are a delightful contrast to the fall/winter
drawings from the northern hemisphere!
Artists' Journal Workshop
A group blog which is the basis of the above blog,
with contributers from the
book (which I also enjoy).
The Intangible Blog
Blog entries are drawn every single day! Donovan is
a snail mail enthusiast who makes up a part of the
Letter Writer's Alliance. Yay Mail!
Creative Every Day
The home of the Art Every Day Month Challenge. Leah has
awesome art, and the AEDM links can be delightful!
Yep! Art is good. Many times I have said that I want to
buy art... to make my tiny townhouse beautiful, and to
Occasionally, I print up my own art and nail it to my
bedroom wall. But I get bored of it quickly. Which is
what worries me about buying art! So I've not actually
bought any art yet...
But, Artist's Journal Workshop has a post by an
artist who intrigues me...
Sandy Williams. Her art is colourful and
wonderful to me! Her prints are 65$, which is within
my price range... I'm thinking about buying one as
a xmas present for myself!
