Although it may already be obvious to artPark followers, I am officially signing off. Like most blogs, this one has run its course. Please know this has not been an easy decision for me. Writing about so many talented artists and the product of their talents has been a privilege and a thrill. However, it simply has become more and more difficult to provide engaging and relevant posts with any consistency.
The primary goal of artPark has always been to discuss and promote the work of artists Laura and I so very much adore. Along the way, I have also tried my best to expose the mysteries hidden in the backrooms of the of the commercial art scene. I hope over the past several years artPark has exposed you to art and artists you otherwise would not have been, and that I have partly demystified the often secretive process of buying and selling art.
Before turning out the lights, I would like to say a special thank you to Brian Mallman for encouraging us to start blogging in 2006. Without his insight and enthusiasm, we would have never launched it. I also thank the many artists who have been profiled and discussed in the posts here. They all have provided such rich subject matter.
Finally, I say a huge thank you to my wife, Laura, for designing the blog, writing the first posts, and supporting my many ramblings.
