>Words on Art

>Had little time to paint and explore this past weekend but thought I’d spiff up someone’s day by including links to a few cool blogs and sites devoted to art that I’ve been visiting of late. 

First off, my Twitter Account follows a good number of art-related subjects, ranging from certain museums to magazines and other artists too.  Feel free to join me in following these entries.  AbsoluteArts is a blog in which various artists contribute.  Kinda good to hear several voices in one place.  Another good one is Artopia, which is a good critics-eye-view of things going on in the art world on a global scale.  Closer to home, that is, Nashville, I’d refer readers to the David Maddox’s Perambulating the Bounds.  He does a great job culling together Nashville’s Art Scene in a one-stop blog that covers the gamut of the music and visual in and around Nashville.   

The last link I’m including doesn’t really refer to words, but rather a way cool idea to get artists from all over involved in a collaborative project:  The Sketchbook Project.  Such a cool concept, I urge all visitors to get involved.  I have, selecting the theme “And then there was none” for my own contribution.  I’ve received my sketchbook but haven’t yet laid any marks in it, preferring to plan it out somewhat.  Nah, the honest answer is, like all other precious empty journals and books I’ve purchased or been given over the years, the blank slate is so symbolically precious to me that I hate to muddy it until I know what I’m putting in is just spot on perfect.  I need to get over that soon, since the due date for this project is Jan. 15. 

Perhaps this weekend coming up, as I make up for lost painting time too. 

About Maura Satchell, contemporary artist and writer

Contemporary artist, seeker, writer. Curious to a fault. I let the fates take me where they will and never say no to an adventure. That has led me on some heart-stirring journeys and impetuous choices. I regret nothing.

    >Thank you for these links. Reading the Maddox one takes me back to the Nashville I know and love. Homesick sometimes.
