Besides my regular Art Print Issues blog beat, I frequently contribute to the Absolute Arts blog. It features a rotating series of guest bloggers from around the globe. Many contributors are artists who provide a wonderful potpourri of perspective you won’t find any place else. My most recent post is titled:
Artists for Art’s Sake – They Work Hard to Earn Your Business and Respect – Please Give It to Them
It’s an argument for supporting artists and explanation of some of the unique aspects of being an artist. All provided with the intent of raising awareness of the what it takes to be a successful with the hope it will encourage more who read it to be motivated to open their wallets as they do their hearts when they encounter art that speaks to them.
Having taken a break from my computer and email for three days, I just reread the post now to painfully find typos and grammar I thought were fixed. Unlike here, where I have an opportunity to edit, what gets sent to Absolute Arts is final. Crunching a column late on a deadline will sometimes cause havoc with the best copy. Fortunately, the intent remains obvious.
