Introducing The Painter''s Post

Readers of these Twice-Weekly Letters often send quick notes to let me know about something on the Internet--an article, a video, a demo, a book review, that sort of thing.

I've often thought that many of our subscribers would appreciate seeing these links. With this in mind, our team has devised a new feature for the Painter's Keys. It's called The Painter's Post. It's a daily compilation of the latest online material that we think might be of value to creative people. And so as not to waste people's time, we are also including a brief explanation of what each item is about. You can see our very first, hot and speedy edition of The Painter's Post by going here.

Needless to say, if you wish to contribute ideas, suggestions or links, please send them along directly to me at Further, we are currently setting up a worldwide team of volunteer editors who will look for and submit appropriate material. Our idea is to have a number of these editors so that they can each contribute when they feel like it. I've never liked pressure, and I don't fancy it for my friends. If you're interested in being part of our team, please just respond to this email and I'll drop you a note with the basic info.

Editors will be given a username and password so they can come and go from our back-end administration. I was able to put in an item myself this morning--apparently even a challenged person can do it.

Like it or not, print media is in decline while online material and readership is on the increase. So is the amount of poorly written and uninformed junk. We have designed the Painter's Post to be a "broad-minded filter" that will quickly add genuine information and current interest to our creative lives. If we succeed, it will be in providing further tools for your growth and success. Who knows where it will take us?

We're hoping that our new venture will be so useful to people that they will make The Painter's Post their home page, bookmark it, and send it to their like-minded friends. It's my sincere wish that you'll get value from The Painter's Post. Please take a look.

Best regards,


PS: "They know enough who know how to learn." (Henry Brooks Adams) "Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it." (Samuel Johnson)

Esoterica: I'm sure lots of folks already know about the guy who makes art in the dust on car windows, another who puts dancing figures in the eye of a needle, and a third who does optical illusions in chalk on sidewalks. But we'll be open to novelty and humour as well. Fact is, we have a pretty good idea of our readership in 115 countries and we respect every one of them. How we might publicize outstanding workshops and seminars is yet to be figured out. The Painter's Post will be built on the sharp-eyed wisdom of our fellow artists and our treasured friends.


Current clickback: The flat trumpet of self-esteem examines the self-esteem industry and the honouring of mediocrity. Give us your thoughts on the methodology of building authentic self-esteem.

Facebook: Michelle Moore, 20, who manages our free links, thought my face would be okay for Facebook. She put the letter there too. Now she's done it again for Twitter.
