painting a day

I've been meaning to post about this for awhile now. With my limited knowledge of the way the art world works, this artist's blog - A Painting a Day - seems like an incredible idea. He's really found a nice middle area where every piece of art is unique, and still fairly inexpensive. I love the peanut butter and jelly still life from a few days ago. According to this USA TODAY article, the artist gets more than enough to get by and keep doing the things he really likes.

The number of industries that blogs/the internet are changing keep mounting, and it's fun to watch unfold. Add art to the list of industries - music, books, film, newspapers, advertising, etc. - turned on their heads.

This story also shows the power of the auction format - it works so well for so many things, I wonder if it has a limit. One day we all may be working for eBay or the like, or at least finding work through them.
