Whitney Brock has launched her YouTube channel

         YouTube channels are an excellent way to share your art and your techniques with the world!
The hard part of the process of filming yourself for episodes is actually pushing the "record" button. As artist, we are already putting it all out there, but youtube dangles you just a little further out from the edge of the cliff. Artists of all types use youtube to learn techniques and to explore new ideas, and one thing is clear, artist freely share their gifts! So hit subscribe when you see something you like, this will help support those out there dangling.

Rita Carroll Solo Art Show at Bedford Landings B&B

Rita Carroll is having a showing of her art at Bedford Landings Bed & Breakfast.  If you have a chance make a trip to the B&B and see her works.  It's a beautiful drive and well worth the trip.

Rita's love of art began at an early age.  She enjoyed drawing all through school but had never thought of painting until her husband purchased a small set of oils for her; she was hooked.  She still loves oil but watercolors have become her chosen medium.

Rita has won many awards for her artwork and currently is with Art Visions Gallery and Studio in Westlake.  More of Rita's artwork can be viewed on her blog
