Painting is a very solitary occupation, and if you are reading this blog chances are you are aware of the importance of networking for many artists.
Internet has become a place to look at other people's work, ask for critiques and suggestions, or simply chatting with people who are definitely more interested in painting than friends or family members.
I first signed up to an artist's forum in 2004. Since then, I was always mildly but constantly active online, probably more of a reader than a public writer.
I have made many friends: we started by exchanging messages about our work and ended talking about our lives, including live commenting on football matches, and arranging meetings around the world ( London, Spain, Arizona, Italy).
