The EBSQ Friday Five offers a brief look at noteworthy news from around the EBSQ Artist Blogosphere.
1. I’ve Just Been Thinkin – I love the painting featured in this post, though it isn’t related to the question Judy Vars’ is asking. She asks, “Do you feel like it takes a certain solitary selfish commitment and that women inherently and usually have a caretaking role so there is and less time and passion to devote to being an artist?”
2. Work in Progress and a lesson in Chops – Theresa Bayer has a fascinating series of posts on her new Wip and the process of regaining her “chops.” What does that mean? You’ll have to go to her blog and find out!
3. Lightest Watercolor Palette Ever – I love it when artists take an ordinary object, something we might normally throw out, and transform it into something new and useful.
4. Reflecting Rose I Wip – Another fascinating Wip, this one from artist Sandra Willard. Scratchboard has always been one of those elusive arts for me. Thank you, Sandra for sharing!
5. 5 Simple Steps to Start your First Blog – No, this doesn’t come from an EBSQ Artist, but it’s a post every artist and would be art blogger should read! Lori McNee’s fine art tips are some of the best around the web.
Have a great weekend, folks!
