Community

March 8, 2010

During my four years at SCAD, I had the opportunity to work first hand with some of the most talented, passionate, and fearless artists on the planet.  It was such a blessing to have that community of artists to bounce ideas off of.  Upon graduation, we dispersed and crawled into our own creative holes.  This was before the time that everyone had a blog or twitter or facebook fan page, and for many of us, it was a tough transition.  Which brings me to today’s post.

There’s a new community out there, a constant source of creative thought and inspiration, that’s carrying us all through a tough economic time.  I’ve “met” some fabulous artists via a blog comment or a tweet, and there is nothing better than waking up on a Monday morning to have your work featured on another artist’s blog…(thank you Elizaveta and Pet Boutique, you made my day this morning) And even though the world-wide web can be a little saturated, it doesn’t take away that sense of community and fellowship that can be had with people of similar interest and perspective.  We are so lucky to be living in this time!

Hope you all have a lovely Monday and thanks to all of you who have found my little corner of the web, and supported it!  You mean the world to me!

Mary Musgrove that is … It’s about time she got a little recognition…an important figure in history don’t ya know? Anyhoo…I was tickled pink to see her featured on the FoundHanmade Blog along with some other Native American inspired goods.

Pretty swell right?  I might add, it’s quite fun to shop around the FoundHandmade site, and they have some stellar deals for sellers looking to promote…oh but this is the best part.

this and that…

Nothing makes an artist happier than seeing his / her work appreciated by other artists.  I was pleased as punch that fellow southern (though displaced) artista Victoria Bennett Beyer wanted my work in her collection…now she’s given me quite the write-up on her blog!  You must  CHECK IT OUT! (thanks Vickie!  I can’t wait to get my Glass Diamonds print)

In other news, Vayda’s working hard to raise awareness for Spay Day 2009…of course the puppy prizes are pretty enticing too…Be sure to check out her little page and place a vote…you know she’s the cutest!

Wishing you all a lovely Sunday

Lee Lee’s Sweet Iced Tea that is… (16×20) to be exact.  It won’t be staying on my mantle though.  This one will ship to the wild west of Wyoming, the  home of Victoria Bennett Beyer! I can’t think of anything sweeter!  If you haven’t been following her photo laced blog, or visited her online store, you are truly missing out.  It’s always an honor to have another artist appreciate your work.  Thanks Vickie!
