Rise and Shine

Acrylic on 20" x 30" canvas, 2007

Here's my new painting shot in daylight. It's kind of overcast today, but sometimes that diffused light can be better than direct sunshine. Still, I am thinking that I need a new digital camera. I know how crisp a picture CAN be and this camera just doesn't quite cut it. It's a good camera, and it's given me a good few years, but I'd love to be able to get high quality shots of my larger pieces to use for prints. At this point, I just make prints from pieces I can scan. I know a really good camera is expensive, so it's time to start saving my pennies! I'm not even close to being able to afford one, but does anyone have any good suggestions for a make and/or model?

Good Afternoon,

I am Mike Turner the relations director at I spotted your blog on google and really liked it. We at are currently creating a section of the site which will link to good quality blogs like yours as our audience has expressed that they think its a good idea of ours to create such a section.

Just to fill you in on what is about, we provide art news, information on modern art movements and offer advice on buying art.

We would like to add a link to your blog from our links section: and we would ask you to provide us with a description of your blog so that we can add it next to your link.

We are only selecting a few blogs to link to so that the focus remains on quality. We spotted an artist blog by an artist called Viv King who is a south African artist. Have a look at her blog and you will see that she has added a link back to from her blog. The link is titled The Modern Art Resource - and it is about half way down the page. Another artist we spotted was Wendy Miller at . If you would like us to link to your blog we would ask that you do the same. Visit and you will find all the information you need in order to link to us.

We look forward to adding your blog to, but please let us know if this ok. We always like to seek permision before we link to other sites.

Keep up the good work with the blog!

Hi Jessica -

Thank you for your nice comment at heArt-a-Day! I absolutely adore your abstracts! They are definitely the kind of art I would love to have in my house. I'm adding you to the artist links on my blog.
