Happy Birthday, Artsy Forager!

18 Mar

Artsy Forager is one year old today!  My little blog baby is moving from infancy into toddlerhood and I am one proud momma.

It's Not My Birthday, That's Not My Cake- Coconut by Lori Larusso, acrylic & enamel on panel, 18x18x1.5

It’s been a year of discovering amazing artists, fantastic galleries and enthusiastic art lovers!  I’ve gotten to know so many incredible people through the blog and would like to thank every one of you for continuing to read, support and share in the art love here at Artsy Forager.

In the coming year, look for even more incredible artists, gallery features, inspiration for artsy living and a blog redesign that will ( hopefully! ) make the website even easier to peruse and use!

You guys make this labor of love a pleasure.  As a birthday treat, I’ll be tweeting some of my favorite Artsy Forager features throughout the day.  Keep your eyes peeled!

Much artsy love!


For George– Thank you my wonderful husband for all of your encouragement and support.  You make my dreams come true every day.
