Any recommendations for blogs/sites about the cutting edge of contemporary painting? I'm casting a wide net here in terms of subject matter, abstraction vs. representation, etc.
I'd like to add a Latin or French phrase meaning "from life" (i.e., short for "painted from life") to my signatures on paintings to differentiate my work from artists who rely on photos and video monitors instead of live models for their work. I'd like it to be pithy and idiomatic, and so I'm somewhat reluctant to rely on Google Translate . . .
Does anyone have some inside scoop on suggesting a link to Boing Boing (other than the boilerplate instructions and faq on the site)? Stuff like response times, numbers of submissions, etc.? I've been a fan of the site for years and I'd do handsprings if my art piece I posted about on Mefi projects got blogged about there.
