Fifteen articles to inspire you in the New Year:

  • Glass miniature masterpieces.
  • These dogs, drawn by Holly Lucero, will give you nightmares.
  • A way to look at your subject so you can draw it more accurately.
  • Skyscrapers into infinity.
  • Please buy me a book illustrated by Tihomir Čelanović. I wish I could read the stories these drawings tell.
  • Breathtaking views of Paris, 1946.
  • I just love Suhita Shirodkar’s work. Take a peek at her sketchbook.
  • Here’s a cool zentangle technique.
  • You can turn a fail around.
  • Tips from people who have been around the block a few times.
  • Woody Guthrie’s New Year resolutions from 1943. I could make a few of these, even though I’m allergic to New Year resolutions.
  • I’m going to try this technique for watercolor backgrounds for zentangle.
  • The large-scale paintings of Salman Khoshroo. Be sure to watch the video of the artist at work. Fascinating.
  • A Christian’s take on creativity and mental illness. Though I’m also a Christian, I don’t believe exactly as she does, but it’s still an interesting essay. Warning: the video is decidedly unholy.
  • I’m thinking of participating in this challenge. How about you? It may help you reach one of your goals for 2017…

I confess—I spend a lot of time reading online. Because I blog, I like to see what other people are writing on their blogs. I also research topics that might be useful for an article or for background in a novel, which lead me down all sorts of interesting rabbit holes.

Whenever I come across a posting that particularly appeals to me, a save a link, with the intention of revisiting it. And periodically, I go through my links and reread article after article.browsing-15824_1280 from pixabay

Some are just too good to keep to myself; so I’m going to share some today that I found especially inspiring:

That’s enough for this time. I’ll share more another day.

Thanks to all the writers who originally posted these articles—I’m deeply blessed by your efforts.
