Well – finally I have managed to locate some artist blogs that I actually think show the spirit of blogging at its best. Those that I have selected so far offer not only an insight into the process of individual creation – its highs and lows with reference to the execution of the artists’s ideas, but as a resourceful reflection of where their process of life is directing them.

I look forward to finding some new blogs to post later.
