David Trager presents Dream Flight by ~blindedangel posted at Feel Good Vibes.

"Created using technical pen and various other drawing tools, this drawing has a technical feel that makes it seem like something out of some science fiction show."D.A.N. presents Untitles Abstract Ink Experiment #2 posted at Sights & Sounds from the Fifth Column.
"This is part two of my exploration of technical abstract ink drawing.

"We’re etching the edges of the windows all over the house with our personal symbols. A dragonfly is mine, befitting a slightly over energized person.

D.A.N. presents I Could have Made That: Why I Don?t Get Minimal Art posted at Sights & Sounds from the Fifth Column.
Note: This is an interesting article and worth reading, Susan
"So what exactly is minimalism as it applied to art? Basically it is based around the concept of “Less is More.” This concept can be applied to anything from paintings to sculpture and allows the artist to use only the most basic elements that are required to create the desired effect."Andrea Dickson presents Buying and selling art on eBay posted at Wisebread.
"What would you say if I told you that I filled my entire living room with completely original works of art for less than $300?

Art by real and struggling artists, both schooled and self-taught?"Dan presents It takes Determination, not Talent, to Make Great Art posted at EmptyEasel.com.
"I can’t imagine what would be like to paint the entire ceiling of the Sistine Chapel – the enormity of it just blows my mind. What was his secret?

And you hope that you find it in something so perfectly packaged."Julie Heath - More4kids Inc. presents Bonding With Your Kids Through Arts And Crafts posted at More4kids.
"Arts and Crafts are a great way to bond with kids, especially when the whole family get involved. These days kids (and parents too) are so consumed with technology that they often don’t even know what making crafts means. Crafts can be a great idea for family time, especially in the winter when we don’t go out so much. Here are some of the benefits and some ideas for your family ‘craft’ time."Derek Andrews presents Repetition as a design element posted at The Tool Rest.
"One of the simplest methods of making our work more visually interesting is to repeat a motif."Best Post for Unrelated Story to "Fine Art"

"How did a hobbyist photographer get a cover shot on a magazine? Fortune favors the bold. Remember there is a difference between having a theory of breathing and actually breathing. Here's an example of what can happen if you just take that first step."
