My 100th Post

This is my 100th post and definitely a cause for celebration! When I began blogging 9 months ago I wasn't sure I be able to find the time to keep up with it. Little did I know how much fun and addicting it is!

For my 100th post today I have all kinds of treats and goodies for you. I hope you have some time and a cup of tea ready, because I'm about to share some teriffic reads. First, I'm sending you on a trip to Wales, UK. Rob Ijbema hails from the Netherlands, but currently lives in Wales. He has a new blog
Painting Wales, that features 12 of his gorgeous plein air paintings one for each month of the year. This is a must see!! The enchanting countryside of Wales through an artists eyes!! Breathtaking!

The BBC currently has aired a new series on the Impressionists. Kathrine Tyrrell in Making a Mark gives us a
review. Even better, the Blighty Blog gives us a very funny parody of the show.

For all of you artists who are trying to gain exposure and get your work and name out there Lisa Mikulski in A look at Art & Design shares 5 Things to Do Before an Exhibit.

Thanks for visiting, and here's to another 100 posts!

Hi Martin,

Thanks for visiting! I've been working to improve the blog with resources and helpful information, so I'm glad you found that article helpful. The author works for a local art magazine The Art Guide, that I advertise in, she's been very helpful, and I was glad to be able to share her article.
