So if you are looking to add some culture into your life but just never seem to find the time, you should take a moment to enjoy some online. Have a peek at Jafabritâ€™s Art Blog and it will not take you long to see that Jafabrit does not just have art in her life, but art IS her life. I have to admit, the visual impressionists are not one of my forteâ€™s, so I canâ€™t adequately describe what kind of art she performs, but that is excuse enough for you to have a look at her Blog. Jafabrit, who hails from Yellow Springs, OH, describes herself as the artist of the blog, and â€œa bit of a cheeky Geordie lassâ€ she likes â€œme kippers, marmite, a good curry, and mass quantities of teaâ€. As with any art, her blog is a very personal one with a person-to-person feel. You almost feel like you are sitting down with her enjoying one of those endless cups as you read her posts, â€œSketchbookâ€ â€“ an interesting post where she combines a photograph into one of her sketches, â€œI Love Thisâ€ — a You Tube video that you have to see to believe, â€œArt Balls Debut and Other Stuffâ€ â€“ a really neat photo that her daughter took and had printed onto canvas, â€œResin Painting and Odditiesâ€, and â€œPhotos of Gatlinburg and Smokey Mountainsâ€.
Navigation on this site is very simple, and, quite enjoyable really. Each post is accompanied with gorgeous pictures that have this unbelievable clarity. I found it striking how the art literally jumped off the page to me, and being that it was a photo of an art piece, then digitized to view online I found that remarkable. On the post with her sketchbook for example, you can actually see the creases in the sketchbook. I can only imagine how brilliant the real life pieces must be. Each post is left marginalized and there is a right sided navigation bar. This contains a very comprehensive listing of her blog rolls and the blogs she likes to visit, as well as a couple of her Thinking Blogger Awards. Check out her links which contain all things artistic, including her portfolio and website, various galleries, and some personal artsy links that add to her eclectic vision. Here you will also find the â€œGood Blogs â€“ A Community of Bloggers Promoting Bloggersâ€, where you can read blogs like â€œCaffeine isnâ€™t a drug, itâ€™s a vitamin!â€ and â€œLaCasse Galleryâ€ among others.
I am going to go with a 4 for this one. When it comes to personal blogs, as this one obviously is, this is one of the best I have seen. Navigation and content all score very high and the uniqueness of the blog is exceptional. In very few posts you get a true feel for this artist and her vision. So much so that I wouldnâ€™t mind seeing more frequent posts. There also is an extensive readership here so I donâ€™t think it would hurt to put some advertising on the blog as well. Overall, I think this is an excellent personal blog, and certainly awakened some artistic appreciation from this writer.
