Many thanks to Katherine Tyrell of the art blog Making a Mark for the nice review of Imaginative Realism--and of Gurney Journey.
I told her that I was glad she mentioned the blogging origins of the book. I really feel like the book would not have been possible without the blog acting as both sail and rudder. I feel I'm writing it with the help of a lot of kindred spirits.
If you haven't visited Making a Mark lately, check it out. It's #3 in the top 25 art and culture blogs in the UK, and for good reason: it's is full of useful resources, including advice on how to write a good artist's statement. On GJ, you only learn how NOT to write one!
