My version of an art "mixed tape" is a bunch of really great info and inspiration for us as we head into the home stretch of summer. Here are several of my favorite recent Artist Daily blog entries and American Artist online articles that have stuck in my mind and taught me great approaches on how to work with art galleries; plein air strategies; oil painting techniques, and more.

And what's great about all these digital resources on Artist Daily is that they are there whenever you need them. You can travel with them and "move" them so much easier than tons of paper copies. That's why the downloadable collections from American Artist magazine are great for me! I can take them with me wherever I go, and that convenience factor is only matched by the wealth of information inside—a whole year's worth of the magazine! Our 2008 Collection and 2009 Collection are available now for download. Plus our Collection Sale starts today! Enjoy!
