We are now getting into the season where the sunrises are fantastic! If you are up early enough, you can catch the incredible colors changing from moment to moment, and then suddenly, they are gone... It is hard to believe some of the colors I have taken photos of - from flaming orange/scarlet to the deep purples and pinks you see in this photo, A New Day. By the way, none of my photos are shot with filters or digitally altered, other than to change their size and resolution for this blog... the colors are as they were in real life when the picture was taken.
I have some sites for you to visit:
BrushSpace is a new web site that you should check out if you want to see the work of artists from all around the world. This site is just up and running, and already has over 1100 profiles of different artists who have joined to showcase their work. From this site, you can visit the artist's website or blog, and see more of their paintings. Great way to pass some time!
Another great browse and read resource I have recently come across is a Canadian art magazine, Brushstroke Magazine, which can be downloaded free from their site at www.brushstrokemagazine.com. You will find many recognized and new/upcoming artists featured, as well as competitions, discounts from advertisers, and commentaries, opinions and much more! Well worth signing up for.
And finally, there is a new cyberspace community for artists if you want to join. Not only are there forums and threads for you, but there are also good articles and instruction. It is called ArtBistro.
Hope each one of you is healthy and looking forward to the weekend. My headaches are almost completely gone now, and I am just taking it easy, getting my energy back. I have a couple of things on the go, but it is very slow progress as I have to fit it in between rests and friends and family who are visiting to ensure I take rests. Till next week...
