Daniel J. Keys
painting during a
workshop at Weekend
With the Masters.
Last spring I looked at artwork posted in the Galleries section of our website and discovered the exceptional paintings posted by Daniel James Keys. I contacted the young California artist and immediately started developing an article that explained how he was able to develop his talent by reading art magazines and books and by accessing the large volume of instructional information on the internet. The resulting profile of Daniel was the cover story in the July/August issue of American Artist.
We have just made it easier for people to find valuable instruction, connect with fellow artists, promote their artwork, purchase magazines and books, enroll in online courses, and learn of new opportunities. Our website has been redesigned, expanded, and given a new web address: www.artistsnetwork.com.
We have changed the name of the site to Artist Daily and established the new address as a way of indicating that the information, resources, and frequency have been expanded to better serve you. The new name will also align our site with several others managed by our parent company, Interweave Press, including Knitting Daily and Beading Daily.
I know that many people may be confused by this change, so let me assure you that if you have bookmarked the American Artist website or committed the address to memory, you will reach our new site by using either of the old URLs (www.myAmericanArtist.com or www.artistsnetwork.com). The system will automatically redirect you to the new site, although I would still recommend that you bookmark the new address.
By the way, I finally met Daniel James Keys when he attended the Weekend With the Masters workshop and conference organized by American Artist and presented at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center from September 10 to 13. We’ll be announcing plans for another event in 2010, so make sure you visit our new website, and recommend that your friends sign up for our e-newsletter so that they’ll be able to sign up for the best workshops when registration begins.
P.S., Artist Daily member, Suzanne, says you should check out countyoffice.org, which is filled with great resources from local to federal offices.
