About Art of Others

I’ve been searching for other artist bloggers as a way to expand my thinking.

I wrote about these artists I’ve discovered in my blogging and artistic journey: Artist Gems. Take a look to view and enjoy their work.

Because I’m a novice artist, still learning, I learn from the work and writings of other artists, enjoying the little things that make them and their work unique. There’s a ripple effect when we appreciate and observe others at their best and as they share while they develop their work. When artists create, their work influences others: the work stirs the emotions, reflects the community and events of the day, and inspires a response, perhaps even in the viewers’ own art.

I appreciate their sharing and also the efforts behind the work and the sharing. It’s a way they give back to the community, and I’ve decided that every other week I’d share some of the gems I notice as a thank you for their willingness to share with others.

So… who did I discover? Read on!

Artist Gems for December 24, 2020

Patty Anne of Patty Ann Art

Patty Anne is a watercolor artist and photographer, sharing her passion for those on her blog. 

An example is this wonderful explanation for a watercolor Christmas tree card. You could do this: Painting Cards for Christmas.

If you’d like to start a sketchbook, check out her lovely post explaining how her sketchbook is all about practice, mistakes, and surprise successes— you’ll love it.

I appreciate that she shares this art and photography she loves and the ideas that she provides. Follow her on Instagram. I love this card. Lots of joy and helpful tips. I hope you follow her.

Take a look!

Again I’ve met my goal looking for art with heart– artists who took the time to share both the art and story, often with the little things of life. These are artists from whom I can enjoy the work and learn a bit more from them myself– me, still learning [always learning]. I appreciate and thank them for sharing their journey, because that helps others, a little ripple effect that improves the world, which is something that is much needed in these times today.

Take a look– I’m sure you’ll agree, each of these artists create with the heart first!
