Inspiring Artists

I want to share a few blogs that are pretty new to me.  I'm not even sure how I found them, but I'm glad I did!

Amy Meissner, an Alaskan textile artist, does beautiful work and writes thoughtful essays. She conveys her ideas about family, her own art, and art in general.  She is not a frequent poster, but her posts always intrigue me and give me something to think about.  Oh, and great photos and insightful looks into her process.

Naomi Bulger is creative in a number of ways, and one that captivates me is her interest in snail mail and the imagination that is evident in every piece she sends out into the world.  Check her out at Naomi Loves, and you will find both a visual feast and food for thought .

Just one more thing to celebrate:   Outings  which takes museum walls to the street.  Julien bi Casabianca began this process, but private individuals have taken up the banner.

  7. I've followed Amy for a little while now, but Naomi Loves looks very interesting. (I'll head over there in a moment.) I will have to look up the Outings project in NOLA the next time we get down there. Thanks for sharing them.

    1. :) Hope you enjoyed visiting Naomi Loves and that we share the pleasure of Amy's blog! I love the idea behind the Outings project and wish I'd known about it the last time I was there in August. Finding the unexpected beauty of wonderful paintings is so intriguing!
