Guest Post

Hi Everyone!

A previous post that I’ve polished up a bit, is making a guest appearance over at  Vision and Verb.

Vison and Verb is a wonderful blog, and I’m so glad to have discovered it via a fellow blogger, when I clicked on his link to Vision and Verb.


 A HUGE thank you to all of you who have loyally followed this blog.

It’s more than reassuring to know that these posts are not only meaningful to me alone, but that there is interest in what I have to share.

Thanks to those of you who follow through Facebook, Twitter, Linked-In, Tumbler, Google +, Reddit, and Networked Blogs, etc.

A heartfelt thank you to each “liker” and commenter.  I enjoy every like and comment.  And now apparently, 101 individuals have signed up through WordPress to view elenacaravela’s every published thought.   Wish I had a better way to say it, but since I don’t,  THANK YOU.

Young Artist Sites

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.  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  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 :) “
