Please allow me a moment if you would, to introduce you to a fellow artist.

Born in Iceland in 1969, Artis considers himself a ‘visual artist’ and I would have to agree.  His photography is certainly a visual delight.  He’s spent a lifetime developing his personal style, which he calls ‘No-Rule Art’, about which he says, “I simply make my own path without any particular rules or guidelines. In that way I feel free in my creation of my work.”  As a producer of high quality photo art from Scandinavia and Europe, his love for not only his art medium, but for his subjects is made obvious in both the words he writes, and his work on display.

What differentiates Artis from the thousands of other blogs on the internet? you may ask.  His difference is in the way he has approached the dilemma we bloggers/artists face; that of being one of a million faces in a crowd.  I ran across his blog by seeing a post he had written, calling artists- whether you create your art with a camera, a paintbrush, or a typewriter- to come together and help one another.  To reach out a hand to others, and help promote and share our work as a united group, using our blogs to help spread exposure for one another; to share with our readers a glimpse of art/artists that they otherwise may not have run across in this enormous world of the internet.

Blog Art Coming Soon

 

Just a quick post to let you guys know what’s coming up.

I won’t be making a ‘regular’ post until Saturday.  Quality time with the better half takes priority, but when I return, I’ve got several things lined up to post about.  Firstly, I’ll be posting about a great blog (Artis, the link is already in the right sidebar if you want a sneak peek), as well as a post about Artwork and Certificates of Authenticity so if you’re an artist, you may want to check that one out!  Also, I’m coming up on 100 followers for my blog, and I’m considering a give-away to celebrate.  I can’t promise that it’s going to be something full of awesomeness, but I’ll be letting you guys know more soon!

See you soon!
