“The color of truth is gray,” said André Gide. It’s extremely truthful outside today.
Since I’m having a hard time firing up the Blog machine on this foggy, hourless day in January, I’ll share some links I’ve discovered that may help with your art-writing.
ArtLex Did you know there’s a complete online Art Dictionary? It contains a crazy amount of information and resources for artists, educators, collectors and students – including a free machine language translator and pithy sayings galore!
Wordnik This is my favorite online dictionary and thesaurus. I love the way it’s structured because it sparks new words and related thoughts.
Art Rules Now if this site doesn’t generate some words to describe your art, I don’t know what will. It’s a social forum where quotes about art pop up and float in on-screen bubbles. You can contribute a thought, and agree or disagree with how others define art.
The Art Stack This site is like Pinterest for fine art. It has introduced me to many new images, even from familiar artists. Recommended with coffee on a morning off.
Or right now is good, too.
