I’d like to thank you, generous blogger friends, for jaw dropping inspiration, remarkable beauty and good-natured fun.
Your generosity renews me every day of the year.
Here’s to you! Happy 2013!
This is part of a repost from my blog for young artists. I thought it might be exciting to share with you some excellent examples of exemplary online presence and some terrific work by very young artists. Their ages span from pre-teen to young adult.
The sites below are three brilliant examples of what very young visual artists are doing. The first is Isabella’s beautiful blog.
Isabella has created three separate sections for her work. There’s the poetry section, fine art section, and fashion (her own designs). Isabella regularly posts wonderful works in progress. You must have a look.
http://eleanorleonnebennett.zenfolio.com will bring you to Eleanor Leonne Bennett’s website that is full of her fantastic photography. It is worth every minute you’ll spend on her website, enjoying her work. I urge you to investigate every photograph.
Kellie See, at kelliesee.wordpress.com beautifully chronicles her coursework as an art student studying illustration. On her terrific blog, you’ll find very specific and instructive posts about what she is thinking and working through. This is what Kellie has to say about her blogging experience:
“I think blogging is fantastic. Its such a great opportunity for people to meet others that share similar interests. Since I started blogging I’ve seen some great pieces of work and read the most amazing posts by other bloggers. They are truly an inspiration for me. Blogging has opened up a whole new world to me where I can share my work and get real opinions and comments back. This is so useful and is a great way to find out what others think and to also help you decide which direction to take next. The blogging community have been fabulous and they are so friendly which makes my blogging experience all the better. I really wouldn’t be without it. Kellie “
I don’t actually know how versatile I am, but I am honored by the Versatile Blogger award. Thanks so much Antonio for nominating me. I also want to thank buddhafulkat who also nominated me. Wow! Visit their blogs.
And now the pleasurable task of honoring fifteen versatile bloggers to carry the title forth into the far reaches of the blogosphere. One would think that it’s difficult to come up with fifteen blogs, but I found that I had to leave some of my favorites out! Another bunch of favs are already recipients of this particular award. But, I’m happy with my choices. And here they are in no particular order…drum roll please;
