Blog Find of the Week

Here is my blog find of the week.  Diana Moses Botkin's blog clued me in to this new magazine "Professional Artist".  The great part is the magazine is available on-line for only $3.95 and only $2.95 for back issues.  I ordered the current issue and was not disappointed.  I found it refreshing to read a full article instead of blips from folks on blogs. (Although I love and appreciate the blips too!)

I also found a local art fair that I am going to apply for.  This will be my first show set-up.

Here is a sampling of some of the articles in this month's issue.

  1. Hi Karla, good luck with your first show. I will be doing mine in August and I am eagerly anticipating all that is to come.

  2. Good luck to you too Carol. Here is a neat article about doing shows and fairs.

  3. Karla, you always have the best information! I will definitely check out this magazine. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Since I barely can find the time to move beyond the morass of life and work, I rarely get time to visit blogs or sites beyond those on my blog roll. But I love that you do this, Karla. This is an especially good find; thanks!


Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to leave a comment!
