Artists You Should *Definitely* Know About

Artists You Should *Definitely* Know About

I am a huge fan of both the visual arts and the performing arts. This world is such a fantastically beautiful and inspiring place full of so many unique people that make it that way. It somewhat saddens me that the younger generations seem to be losing a bit of the connection with the arts.

Every week or two, I’d like to do my part to fix that on Single Dad Laughing by featuring four artists. A visual artist. A performing artist. A photographer. And a street performer.

Most of you probably don’t know, but long, long ago I used to make my living as an animal portraitist. I also played the tuba and baritone for many years when I was younger. At least once every month or two I try to support the arts by attending the ballet or the symphony or an Indie concert.

My hope is that this weekly post will inspire you to either get out and support the arts a lot more, or to pick up that paintbrush, dust off that old guitar, or start stretching your dancing legs. And please, help support the arts and share this post!
