Expressing gratitude is an expansive spiritual practice that allows the flow of life's energy to remain vibrant and alive. I wanted to take some time today to say thank you to a few people out in the blogosphere who have touched my life, influenced my thinking, assisted in my process, and gosh darn it all just made me feel good!
I think I found a link to ArtBizCoach Alyson Stanfield first @ www.theartrepreneur.com back around the beginning of the year, and I have been reading her blog and newsletter ever since. If you have never read her, I would definitely recommend checking her out. Alyson is a great resource of information for learning more about the business of art. I thought her recent post about dissecting what makes a good artist's blog especially thought provoking. Read it and find her recommendations of other artists' blogs to fall in love with. I've already subbed to a couple of them and look forward to reading their stuff!
In accordance with the mystery of the Universe we call the world wide web, I can't remember exactly how I bumped into Tammy Vitale's blog Women, Art, Life: Weaving It All Together. Tammy is also writing about kicking her art business up another notch, as well as showing off her stunning ceramic masks, torsos and beads. She is a woman after my heart, and I enjoy reading about her journey.
My friend Judi Singleton has started a new internet venture on the Law of Attraction. If you have read The Secret or enjoyed the movie What the Bleep, you would probably enjoy her email course on this fascinating topic.
And finally I want to extend a bear hug of gratitude to fellow photoshop adventurers Rima Koleilat of Maraya Galleries and Bobbie of Great Grannie's Blog for letting me know that my photoshop tutorials made sense to them and were easy to follow. Check out their artwork here and here.
