Professionals artists and novices alike would agree that art lends itself to solitude. From the studio to the gallery — both creating and viewing art tends to be an individualized experience. But is this a necessity of the field, or just a bad habit?

Art blogs help artists to reach beyond the canvas or the computer screen and make contact with thousands of other creatives all across the world.

Many artists have done just this. Blogging provides any creative-minded individual the opportunity to share their work with the world at large. Blogging, combined with social media and online art communities offers artists a unique opportunity for self-promotion, expanded viewership, and ultimately, contacts with buyers.
