I am starting to work on this art blog for three reasons: 1.To promote the sale of my personal art. 2.To network with other artists. 3.To build an art community.
My situation is that I have been working in north Thailand
as a Christian missionary for over 25 years. I live in a very small village
close to the northern border in a village of rice farmers. Saying this you can
understand that I have very little “art talk” with my neighbors.
I have become part of a group of primarily Thai artists in
the city of Chiang Rai. This has helped my need for fellowship to some degree
but as far as helping me reach my goals of generating some sort of income
through the art it has done nothing.
There are some initial comments I would like to mention as
well. First, this is an art blog. I am by vocation a full time Christian
worker. Saying this you may understand that I am passionate about my faith. On
the other hand this blog is for art and all that has to do with it. By the
nature of being a Christian artist my belief system will come out on some level
yet it is not my goal for having this blog.
Please offer positive and appropriate information. I am interested in all kinds of work, from abstract, sculpture, ceramics, oil painting, realistic, watercolor, and pen and ink.
Lastly, I hope to enjoy myself through this blog. I am not the greatest writer so please excuse
possible spelling and grammar problems. I hope to share on a more heart
