Art, Coffee, Tea and Blogs

So my doctor said I should cut down on coffee…I think I’ll cut down on doctors.

So here it is May. The weather has warmed (if you live somewhere other than Fl. where its been warm for quite awhile), your fingers don’t ache as much from the cold and you’re ready to move forward with all of those emails to galleries, contests and other artists. BUT, remember that doing for yourself is important too. So here are a few links to wander through when the rest of the world can wait!

I’ve been feeling a bit nostalgic so I thought I’d start this list with access to old computer games from the 80’s and 90’s – Download computer games from the 80s and 90s.

This 800 page color book was created long before Pantone. It’s hard not to compare the hundreds of pages of color to its contemporary equivalent, the Pantone Color Guide, which wouldn’t be published for the first time until 1963.


Next up is a list of 125 places to sell your art presented by Artsy Shark


And while not everyone likes Tumblr I did find this coffee blog to be fun

So enjoy the beginning of May (I will my birthday is May 7th) and as always remember

Imagination is never still, the Marks we make are Verbs

He taught at the Los Angeles School of Art and co-founded Art Core, an organization dedicated to the open dialogue and display of the work of emerging artists. He continued his Master studies at Otis Art Institute. While at Otis Art Institute his teacher and main influence was internationally recognized painter Arnold Mesches. In Artcore he worked under the guidance of Lydia Takashita. With their teaching Donald learned the value of depth, texture and form in images and surface. He incorporated this into his concept of Life Forms, the portrayal of the human figure as a landscape of life and a celebration of form through Sculpture and Painting.
