A bit of news...

A blog post reprinted!

One of my previous blog postings (“Keeping a Nature Art Journal”) has been reprinted in the Art Journal Journey magazine by Artella, June 2010, Issue 19 (pages 54 and 55). The magazine (full of articles and tips on art journals) is available in print or online, or visit their website

Now part of the Nature Blog Network!

A Nature Art Journal has been accepted to the Nature Blog Network.

Elva Paulson pointed me to this searchable nature blog gateway. Beware, you may never want to leave it! You can sort and view by category (this blog is listed under “Art”).

The collaborative blog I also contribute to, Sketching in Nature, is number 1 on the art list! As many of you know, Sketching in Nature was created by renowned artist and author Cathy Johnson, and features nature artists from all over the world sharing their field sketches and comments.

Thanks for letting me share. Let me leave you with these thoughts from Pablo Picasso to invigorate and inspire your own creative urges:

“Every child is an  artist.
The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”

"I am always doing things I can't do,
that's how I   get  to do them."
