Thank You to Those Artists Who Share, or, Where I'm Hanging Out These Days

Tabs for my 2016 Art Journal
Pull of the Tides has been on hiatus as a blog for some time now. That is because I am spending my creativity in ways other than writing these days. Namely, I have been making a lot of two-dimensional art on paper and taking tons of photographs. 

My intention is to keep Pull of the Tides right here, where it is, while I pursue other avenues of creativity. I may ultimately come back to writing again. For the moment, I find that several microblogging apps suit my purpose, most especially Instagram

To keep up with me on Instagram, browse here to my ~runningwave~ feed.

While I've been away, I have been taking some amazing art classes both online and in person. I have attended several artists events, visited galleries, and chatted with artists virtually and in the real world. Staying connected to creative communities is very important to me.

Not all of my inspiration is coming from visual artists. Lately, I find myself fascinated by authors, musicians, actors, movie-makers, tv writers and video editors. When you can transmute ideas from one medium to another, that is good, artistic communication. There are so many people out their who are making good art.
