List of Art Blogs

Wow, 2008! I thought I better get back on the bike and post something before I get too comfortable sitting around reading, watching television (pay TV is an evil brain deadener), listening to music, and playing with the dogs.

My main goal for 2008 is to notice and acknowledge each day, each hour, and each minute. I feel like I missed most of 2007 as I now think back on it as a blur. The blurring effect wasn’t from too much red wine either. I think it was from spending too much time in the past or the future and forgetting about now.

So, smelling the roses and being thankful for the simple things in life will be my goal.

Forgetting me for a moment, I found a list of 8 art blogs that should be read in 2008. They were posted on the EmptyEasel art portal and used the following criteria..

“My criteria? I chose blogs that are focused on art, illustration, or design that consistently feature helpful and well-written articles, are frequently updated, and have the staying power to last all the way through 2008.” EE

    I want to thank you for your blog. It is a lovely little blog. No pretension. No big aims. Just plenty of posts about all sorts of things that I didn’t know about and am happy to discover.

    Keep up the good work.

  2. Thanks for the kind words Christine. Glad you liked the blog ;)


  3. Very nice blog indeed. I found it searching for good ways of bloging pictures. I draw and paint and have at the moment only a regular blog. As my main interest is in showing pictures, not writing about them, I’m looking for a better way of presenting them,(while not having a website of my own,yet..)maybe you know something?
    Thanks again for a nice art-forum

  4. I think saying that one will enjoy every minute, every hour, every day is so naive.. and eeew.. :-/ It is just my opinion though.

  5. Thanks Michel. Blogger is a free and easy way to get started.
    Having your own domain name and website probably look more professional looking though.

    Elena, you might be right. Enjoying the moment doesnt mean I hope to be dancing around gayly with a smile that can’t be removed though. Perhaps I should say that I hope to observe each minute, day, month, minute.. the good and bad days.. I want to experience them all.
    Less busy time and more now time.
