We often recognize the art, but do we recognize the artist? This month’s challenge is to celebrate the artist via portraiture. Artists may be visual, literary, or musical. Please make sure to let us know the subject of your art and a bit about the artist in question. Oh–and since we’re all artists here, self-portraits are welcome as well!
Be careful what you wish for
cause you might not be dreaming big enough.
This short talk from Dar Williams is full of truth and creativity goodness. Williams is a singer-songwriter, but her experiences and advice apply to anyone working a creative field.
Last month’s exhibit was restricted to photography only. This month we’ve opened the door! You can paint/draw/ photograph your entries but they must be naturally blue flowers, like forget-me-nots. Other examples include hydrangeas, salvias, and Himalayan poppies.
I recently received an email asking for advice on how one quits their day job and starts an independent career in art. It’s a question I get from time to time, and I thought I’d take a moment today and give some advice to people who are thinking about it.

EBSQ artist Tabatha Rhodes is running a Kickstarter!
What is an artist without a portfolio to back them up? I am shifting my artistic path and I need your help to rebuild my portfolio.
Tabatha Rhodes is taking the plunge! She wants to build a career in art with pet portraits. Will you help her? The campaign is already 96% funded, but there are still 22 days left to take advantage of the great rewards she’s offering.
I’ve chosen the $10 Pledge for a Digital “PetHedz” Portrait of my cat Drusilla:
A digital drawing of your pet or animal of your choice done in my “PetHedz” style delivered to you via e-mail. This will be formatted for printing (think mugs, phone cases, pillows!) or to use on the internet or whatever you want!
I can’t wait! Check out Tabatha’s Kickstarter today! http://kck.st/1Dn5RAI
