Art Stuff Newsletter

the art newsletter about YOU....

OK, let's dive right into the web sites. If you haven't shared your web site with the rest of us send it to me and I guarantee it will be in the next newsletter. This is not a juried submission. My last appeal for sites brought a few more than I can include this month but Simon Winegar is at the top of the list for the next newsletter.

Web Sites

Here are the exciting plein air paintings done mostly in France by Brigitte Curt and the Zen drawings of Jm Smythe.

Grimsby, Ontario watercolor artist Judy Thorly has a wonderfully unique vision and way of expressing it.

Brooklyn figurative artist Elinore Schnurr is in museum collections such as The Cleveland Museum of Art and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

Michigan artist Marilyn Troutman paints the beauty around the Great Lakes in oils, acrylics and pastels.

NYC artist and Art Students League friend Chris Sesko pushes her color and expresses with boldness.

Canadian artist Lori S. Lukasewich paints contemporary realist paintings often expressed in an ethereal light.

Colorado artist Jill Musser paints in the alla prima style (painting into wet paint and usually finishing in one session).

New Mexico artist Maggie Price paints "something beautiful or wonderful that I wanted to share with others".

Enjoy looking through the web site of Idaho artist Betty Billups to experience her high level of painting.

Santa Fe artist Lee McVey captures the beauty and expansive grandeur of the Southwest.


I've been getting a nice response to the workshop in Burgundy with Kim English in June. That two for one special is still being offered but some folks are finding it difficult to get a friend or mate to come along. So I will act as kind of middle man. Just let me know if you're interested in going and in sharing a room to save a huge amount of money. I will keep a list of people looking for compatible roommates. I won't be giving out email addresses until it seems likely that I can put you together with someone else. This method is working on my San Miguel workshop (which is filled) and I would like to continue offering this service.

Don't forget to check back from time to time to see what's happening on the Pay Me With A Chicken web site.

I found a really nice looking site that will help you create your own web site and arrange for hosting it as well. It's called Artists Studio Online. Check them out and give Jennifer a call or drop an email. Their contact information is on their site. Another excellent site used by artists is called FineArtStudioOnline. Nice to have good choices.

Taxicabs in New York City in January will begin showing art work in their roof top advertising panels. Can't wait to see that.

This is really great: A video of a guy who creates art from the air that comes up from the subway cars passing underneath the street. Thanks to Nancy K. for sending this along and brightening my morning.

Here's a YouTube video sent by John Francis Peters called "Three Wise Women".

There is a brand new contest: whoever finds typos in my newsletter (there usually are some) you will win a prize. What's the prize? A smack in the head!

artist quotes

All these quotes are attributed to Van Gogh

"I tell you, the more I think, the more I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people".

" I want to touch people with my art. I want them to say 'he feels deeply, he feels tenderly".

"An artist needn’t be a clergyman or a churchwarden, but he certainly must have a warm heart for his fellow men."

"You can't be at the pole and the equator at the same time. You must choose your own line, as I hope to do, and it will probably be color."
