Last Friday I was honored as the Featured Site on Chris O'Byrne's Online Arts Marketing blog. The recognition was quite a rush for me, and Im grateful for a day in the spotlight. Yee-gads, Im speechless. If you are looking for additional information and insight on how to market your art online, you might want to take a peek at Chris's site. It was especially gratifying to discover he had been a fan of my art for quite some time, and it makes me aware how much art I look at online without saying anything to the artist about how I feel.
Many of you know that I have been involved in an Artists in Business group through the local SBDC where I live. It's been a good experience for me on many levels, and in other ways I wish I could do it again. But the time I spent will lay a good foundation for me to build on. Recently a member from the group, Connie Rose of Constance Rose Designs, began writing about her art and I've learned more about her art in the short time she's been online than I have the whole time I've been in the group. It says something about the power and immediacy of this medium.

Connie spins her own fibers and weaves the most exquisite scarves I think I have ever seen. She writes a lot about her process with photos to back it up, which I found fascinating, since this is an art form I know nothing about. Education is a great thing. Please go over and welcome Connie to the blogosphere. Glad to have you here, fellow artist. It looks like you've made yourself right to home.
