Fossicking Friday 19 November 2010

I have divided this week's fossicking into 3 rough sections - stuff you can read, stuff to look at, and stuff to do, have fun!


Now this is something really worth reading. Alyson Stanfield's artbizblog is always jam packed full of excellent advice, but this post on Just starting your art career is invaluable. If you are unsure about how to get started as an artist, click on this link and make notes.

And here is some more info for your art career: How to write an Artist's Resume or CV by Katherine Tyrell of Making a Mark.

The Little Book of Procrastination Remedies by Leo Babauta of Zen Habits. Hands up who does not need procrastination remedies!!


Susan Abbott!!! What a fabulous artist - spent much too much time 'paging' through her travel journals and looking at the Dream Tables Paintings! Absolutely LOVE them - I see she has a blog , so I am following that too! Found her in the Watercolour Artist magazine - such a good read. (Lucky me I borrow copies from the library and then make copious notes!)

Laurel Daniel Oil Paintings. I love these plein air morning paintings! Such beautiful light!

teesha's circus: journal pages. Always a visual delight!

Take a look at these coloured pencil works by Cecile Baird. The light is so beautiful, it's difficult to believe that they are done in pencil.

Not painting, but this YOU HAVE TO SEE: MousesHouses.
