The Internet has been a huge boon to artists with an entrepreneurial bent. I'm not talking websites, which any serious artist should have by now, but of blogs and other e-projects that allow us to write, curate, exhibit and meet in an electronic community that transcends physical space.
I'm pleased to announce that my painting, Silk Road 117, is included in Against the Tide, an online exhibition curated by Sharon Butler on her Two Coats of Paint blog. Writes Butler: "This online exhibition presents paintings by sixteen contemporary artists in the Two Coats of Paint community who have been drawn, perhaps against the tide, to the power and metaphor of water."

The online exhibition features a perfect-bound, full-color print catalog published by Butler and her Two Coats of Paint press.
