Editorial


It's been exactly six years since I stared this art blog. There are 843 posts on these pages. It takes a lot of time and research to achieve what I wanted this blog to do; that is to show a diversity of art with as much of an artists' work in one place as would serve to illustrate his or her oeuvre.

It has built up a steady number of followers over that period and I am most grateful for that, but lately the  blog has been haemorrhaging followers for whatever reason, so it is probably time to stand back and reconsider what I am trying to do here.

I'll be back, as someone once said, but in the meantime please do browse through the index of existing posts, I'm sure (hope) you will find something of interest. Thank you,

Poul Webb

*Footnote: Ok, apparently Google have reconfigured the way they count blog members, so this is happening across the board. I will still be giving myself a little time to think about what I'm posting. Back soon.
