I am thinking Blogger is a dead zone for artists. I know I have been neglectful as my interaction with artists has widened on Face Book. I am a member of a number of FB groups which I enjoy. One of them I started. It’s for quick, daily sketches. Finished work is unacceptable—too many artists post their finished work as sketches on various cites, which I think inhibits younger, less skilled artists. My group advocates short drawing sessions every day using whatever medium the artist is comfortable with. It’s called Gotta Minute? Sketch. Then I post in a sketchpad group, a realistic portrait group and sometimes, not often, in a watercolor group. The connections I’ve made through FB have been delightful and informing. The affiliation has been satisfying for this retired lady who just likes to draw and paint for the fun of it, not as a livelihood.
So, if any of my followers are still out there, this is my last post. I thank you for the encouragement you’ve given me since 2009. It helped a lot. It meant a lot. And the best part was the friends I met here are the friends I’ve kept there. We post. We message. We occasionally Skyp. And we talk art. If you’re not on FB in the art groups already, come on over. Hugs and best wishes for a prolific 2018. Linda
