600 Blog Posts

Hard to believe we've passed the 600 mark in posting. It's been a fantastic journey. A special thanks to all my Followers and those who have me in a Reader and special thanks for those who list my site on their Blogs.
.
My Blog is long over due for a make-over and lately I've been researching to do just that.
.
Way back when, I wondered if there were other artists who used dots or writing in their paintings (silly me) and the answer, of course is an on-going, resounding yes. There are close to 600 more artists in my Favorites files waiting to be posted and it's become obvious that these are pervasive genres.

Encountering new artists and their oeuvres is always inspiring, challenging and reaffirming, but I'm starting to wonder if I should continue to post about them the way I do; wondering if I should take a new direction besides just spiffing up the blog and making it work better. Even wondering if it's time to retire the Blog.
.
Your thoughts and comments would be appreciated.




If you haven't (lately) browsed through some or all of the Artists in the far right column, please avail yourself - it's a wonderful research tool.

I for one would miss tackad very much. You have to want to do this, so it is of course up to you, but I look forward to each and every discovery you post.

You have put a lot of work into this blog, and I for one really appreciate it!
I really enjoy choosing one of your artists and going into their own inspirational journey via these posts and have been surprised and intrigued by what I find. Don't know anywhere else I would find such a wealth of current sources. I can find wedding calligraphy by the bouquet load, and splashy art by the bucket, but the challenge to grasp some of the art you feature is well worth the time.
I thank you for popping me into one of your blog lists - maybe my latest design has enough dots to get your attention?
