Like my blog? Here are some other blogs and artist sites you may enjoy:

Kelly Marie is an artist and creative consultant. Check out her site for beautiful, serene art and a wealth of content to assist you in your artistic endeavors (whether a hobby or if you are looking to make money with your craft). 

I have been a fan of James Hance for years—his style, his subject matter, everything. If you love Star Wars, Winnie the Pooh, or even whimsical (and masterfully executed!) paintings, this is the place for you.

Karen Hallion is another favorite artist of mine. Her style is fun and I love the art nouveau elements she likes to throw in, along with the content (which is often a mashup of popular movies, television shows, and books). Definitely a must-see, so check her out. 🙂
