The Painter's Keys
The Painter's Keys website is a rich international online art community based in western Canada that includes a directory of participating artists, letters written by painter Robert Genn, musings in response to those letters by other artists, an archive, art quotations, international listings of art studios (in case you want to travel), and an online art gallery. See http://www.painterskeys.com/about.php for a better description than I can give.
You can subscribe to artist Robert Genn’s [free] twice-weekly thoughtful letters about living the life of an artist so they will appear in your own email account. Recent posts have been about Selection and Rejection, The Anticipation Response (how the release of the feel-good hormone dopamine helps our creative response to our work), and Art and Grief--how the recent loss of a loved one affects our ability to create art.
