do the reading - a studio blog

Research is a vital aspect of my studio practice. Almost every session in front of the easel is punctuated by forays into the jungle of the online art world. Strangely, the most fruitful finds are often only tangentially related to the original query. Once a week, I plan to post a couple of these web-based gems. Hopefully, my fellow creatives will see their utility (or at least use them to locate new and exciting rabbit-holes to chase).
