There's a vague unspoken brotherhood amongst bloggers that I discovered when I entered the blogging world myself 8 years ago. Yes, there are a few bad apples but for the most part bloggers are very supportive of other bloggers. One such person who has been very supportive to me over the years has been Thom Buchanan who has the artistically eclectic THE PICTORIAL ARTS at http://mydelineatedlife.blogspot.com and the great Walt Kelly blog, WHIRLED OF KELLY at http://whirledofkelly.blogspot.com. While I was on hiatus earlier this month due to the flood, Thom shared with me his latest creation, THE PICTORIAL ARTS JOURNAL. To say it's gorgeous would be doing it a disservice. This virtual book is a thing of absolute artistic beauty, offering up paintings and photos and sketches that cover a wide range from The Renaissance itself to Renaissance Fairs. Take a few minutes and enjoy!
