Who knew you could have so much fun with a pin cushion? Who knew you could have so much fun with a blog? It's an online gallery and virtual world of fantastic artists, all in touch because of the internet. This morning I received two emails that really made my day. Edward B Gordon of Berlin, Germany, makes the point that the blogosphere really levels the playing field in the art world, big gun artists right alongside, 'never had a show' artists, and because of the bargain basement prices all over this and other blogsites, anyone can be the first to bid on a painting and take it away, on a first come first served basis. Another email from Brad Bisbey whose prolific people paintings, in all media, ROCK, contained insightful and heartwarming comments about my work that I would never have if my work sat in my studio instead of residing on this blog. Check out my ever growing list of links over on the right to see the work of these, and many other artists, whose passion shows in their work. It's a beautiful thing . Our paintings are our faces. Doesn't matter who you are or aren't or what you look like. This is not a good photo of this painting, but after 8 tries, fah-ged-aboud-it!
