One thing I have enjoyed since I started blogging is finding other blogs that I really enjoy reading and following. Not all are craft related but since that is my realm then most are. So I would like to take this opportunity to send out some "Blog Love" to one of the many blogs I enjoy. I think this might be one of my new features on my blog, giving a different blog some love each week.
The first blog I'd like to send out some love to is John Wright Art. I have to preface this by saying I took drawing in High School and was lucky to get a C so despite the fact that I'm not an artist like that I do appreciate someone who is. John is an incredible painter and I am a bit biased too since he is from Nottingham in England (my husband is from Newcastle). Despite that bias you cannot dispute the fact that this man has some of the most beautiful paintings, quite a few of which are of areas around where he lives in England. He also has some colorful abstracts, full of bright colors which I can imagine having in your home would be the best tonic in the cold of Winter. Following Memories is one of my favorites, great Spring colors. John also sells his works of art on Etsy so don't forget to check out his shop too http://artyjohn.etsy.com/. John has this amazing eye and hand to bring these scenes to life and in such brilliant colors and all of this from someone who didn't even take up painting seriously until he was in his 30's. I hope everyone will send some blog love John's way since he most certainly deserves his talent to be recognized.
