When you see the big molten-lava orb, then you know it's time for a Hottest Blog entry. This is where The Colorist points out the hottest artist's blog that you may not be reading yet. But should.
The Hottest Blogs for 2011 will also be noted one at a time, or maybe sometimes two at a time. Look for the molten orb periodically throughout the year.
Have you seen Sonya Johnson's blog, Sonya's Daily Art Journal? Her oils and pastels of the Durango, Colorado region are an instinctive and accurate fit for the four corners area, a high and arid region of the American Southwest. She observes this area effortlessly, and also has no problem with the estimable bigness of the desert and the mountains of her home. Sonya's blog is one to watch for 2011.
