I know I have been missing from my blog and that I am not a very good blogger lately, but with work and painting with almost all my free time I just don't find I have the time and then I went and found Tumblr! Tumblr is a place where dreams are and images and words of inspiration and beauty. I started my Tumblr blog as a place to keep all the wonderful images I was finding on other Tumblr blogs, but then I realized it was a place to share that beauty too. Robyn, my new lovely friend over at the most wonderful blog Art Propelled
and my sweet friend Angela
were the first people who alerted me to this new form of blogging. Some people I have shared Tumblr with don't get it and some do. Basically I find an image of a painting, photo or poem and quickly post it (Tumblr makes it quick and easy) and if I see an image or poem or quote on another Tumblr blog all I have to do it hit this niffty little button called reblog, and there it is with links and everything. There are no comments, just notes, there is a heart button that says you like the post or it shows you who reblogged the post. I can do 10-20 posts in ten minutes! For me it is like when I am reading an art magazine or a really good book and I want to mark something wonderful in it so when a friend comes over I can share it with them, only this is easier and faster. And I always have a place to go to see really great art, better art I might add then what I see in the art magazines, which seems tired and old in comparison. Do you see that yummy painting on my side bar, at the top? That is a link to my Tumblr blog
. You can visit anytime and see what I am loving and get inspired and if you click on archive you will see all the images in thumbnail form, just click on one to enlarge and if you want to see more from an artist, just click on the image in the post and it will take you to their site, this is where I tend to get lost late at night looking at beautiful art.
Please let me know what you think of the blog and if it makes you smile like it does me.
Happy Saturday. XOXO
