I enjoy blogs in which artists frequently post their work and chronicle their experiences and progress as an artist. A case in point is Jeff Hayes’ State Of The Art, in which the Boston artist posts his small oil paintings, discusses the painting process, offers painting demos and comments on art related topics. Here is a post about his approach to photographing small paintings.
Hayes offers up many of his small oils for bid on eBay as he posts them on the blog. His regular web site includes galleries of his work, primarily contemporary realist landscapes and still life.
This painting demonstration is on the web site but also linked from the blog. He has also created short videos of the creation of some of his paintings (here’s another), and now offers several of them as podcasts.
