Unfortunately these days I'm 6 hrs by air, David - but just a Google Hangout away. There are some folks in another tribe that have been chatting on similar veins. Maybe I can organize a group huddle.

What kinds of things are at the top of your mind about art these days?

Hi John, You're only about an hour fropm me, we should connect and talk art some time.

I'll tell you - social media is a funny thing. We get caught up in the technology but it's more like running into someone at the market and they mention that you should also check out this stand and that one.. and so on.

Here's a Pinterest board I started simply as partly a joke and partly a tribute to the hometown during my high school years - Last-Exit-on-78-22 West ..it continues to get more traffic than all of my other boards combined!

At some point I need to do some traffic analysis, but overall I'd say that if you use the media that you enjoy and best aligns with your personality - whether it's pictures or video or texting 140 words or less, it doesn't matter how they find you.

I haven't really drawn anything in ages and over the years I've resisted getting into sculptures with wood or metal - something about these attract me. Meanwhile, I dance Argentine tango, which is definitely not the ballroom stuff that people often ask, "is that like Dancing with the Stars?" Nope, definitely not!

Thank you Nathan and Melissa! I'd love to see more of everyone's work posted on the pinterest site, so please consider uploading your creativity there. Its so encouraging and inspiring to see each other's pieces grouped together. Thanks again Nathan for getting that going.
John--thats a great idea! So simple and something I'll definitely start doing in the future. Thank you! Do you have art on pinterest? Does that refer a lot of traffic to your personal sites?

Really lovely stuff on this Pinterest board!

I'm normally a sucker for journals but these are quite stunning, Timmery.

May I suggest providing a link to your website or other means to receive such beautiful work?

Pinterest is a great way to get traffic for business owners, ESPECIALLY if they're in retail!

Good morning all :)  

Nathan & Timmery, it was so nice to see the new Pinterest notification for Timmery's journal come up on my phone this a.m. Love your journals Timmery :)

Jeremy, I do have that book- but I don't remember if I read it or not. I'll have to reread this week; it looks pretty short.

Timmery, thanks for the heads up about the app. I just started playing with some techie art stuff. It's fun to try new things others recommend.

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!

Just a reminder we have a Pinterest Board with artwork from the Artists Arise group. Timmery Clark just pinned a beautiful notebook today and it's beautiful! If you would like to pin your work to the board message me and I will include your email address to the "pinners".

You can visit the growing Art Board here: http://www.pinterest.com/millernw/48-days-art-board/

Good Morning.

Question for the group:

Have anybody have read Art & Fear by David Bayles and Ted Orland? If you have, what are your thoughts, opinions or criticism about the book.

If it is possible to start a dialogue with this topic; I am okay with that.

Comment by Timmery Clark on February 16, 2014 at 1:28pm
Have any of you tried the free app "Paper"? Its a lot of fun to play with on a tablet. For under $10 you can buy additional 'drawing' tools. I've been playing with it and its sparked some creativity in me, which is so nice! If I can figure out how, I'll try to post a piece I made last night...

Chris--nice work! Its good to hear from you again. I'm loving the touch of whimsy the hot air balloon brings to convertible painting, wonderful, keep it up!
