In Awe of Artists

When I'm not writing, or cleaning. or organizing, or saving the world  napping, you'll usually find me on the computer looking for cool ways to decorate my home or websites that will feed my inspiration.
And just in case you might have some spare time between breakfast at McDonald's and an evening of American Idol, I decided to share some of my favorite sites.
These are mostly artistic blogs, but I can spend entire afternoons soaking up their creative awesomeness!
I hope you'll take a peek at them and agree.

"Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures. " ~Henry Ward Beecher

"The artist's world is limitless.  It can be found anywhere, far from where he lives or a few feet away.  It is always on his doorstep. " ~Paul Strand

"Great art is as irrational as great music.  It is mad with its own loveliness."  ~George Jean Nathan

"As the sun colors flowers, so does art color life."  ~John Lubbock

"Art is when you hear a knocking from your soul - and you answer."  ~Terri Guillemets

"Art is not a thing; it is a way."  ~Elbert Hubbard

Please leave me a comment after you've visited these artists. Or bookmark them and explore them later. I know you'll be amazed...
Have a great weekend!

”Happy are the painters, for they shall not be lonely. Light and colour, peace and hope, will keep them company to the end of the day." -- Winston Churchill.

I see why you visit these websites, Rae. I enjoyed all of them, but my favorite was seeing the incredible work that went into the mouse house items. Whittling a fainting couch! Amazing! And though I don't want one of those little creatures in my house, I did enjoy looking at their sweet little scenes. :) Thanks for sharing!

I don't know whether it's just me or if everybody else
encountering problems with your site. It appears like some of the written text within your
content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to
them too? This may be a problem with my browser because I've had this happen previously. Thanks

It's appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you some interesting things or suggestions. Perhaps you could write next articles referring to this article. I wish to read more things about it!
