Why a Sculptor should have a blog

Greeting Card Designer Blog invited Patrick Gracewood, sculptor, to be a special guest writer for "Social Media Month" and talk about his experiences of having blog about his art.


by Patrick Gracewood

I post three times a week to my sculpture blog, www.ShadowsOnStone.blogspot.com. There are several reasons I believe having a blog is helpful for artists:


Why I Have a Blog

  • Writing that often has made me much more articulate about my own work and the work of others.
  • Writing for a blog is like writing a post card. Blogs need good images and short concise sentences.
  • I'm thinking more about the why we make sculpture and less about the how (techniques ) of artmaking.
  • The most surprising thing is getting new subscribers from all over the world, Australia, Argentina, and Serbia.

How did they find my humble blog?

Well, it turns out there are a few other people who like to think about making sculpture and why.

It's a small audience but that's exactly who I want to engage in this conversation.

My approach to sculpture is poetic, I use images of nature metaphorically to evoke an emotional response.

I love the way Patrick looks at the world. Rarely do I slow down long enough to think about the impact art has in my life. Thankfully I have Patrick to do that for me. Sorry, it's true.

Patrick displays his wonderful talent in putting words to all of our thoughts as artists and to describing the work that we all need to do to keep our work and those thoughts out in the world. And he is an amazing sculptor too! Thanks Patrick!
