Growing a Collection

Recently I realised that RWB is a great way to build up a collection of paintings by some of my favourite artists. Now, every month I buy a painting done by a different artist. This is my Olivia Quintin painting framed and ready to hang on the wall.

I’ve written before about how thrilled I am that so many wonderful artists have joined in the challenge. I wanted to give something back to them wherever I could – and at least for those who have websites or Facebook pages for their art, Running With Brushes is able to do something in return for them.

So, what is it we can do for our artists? When we post new paintings on the site, we categorise them by artist, making all our paintings searchable by artist. Artists listed on our About page (soon to have their own page) have links to their websites (if they have one) so you can look at their other work. We post paintings to our Pinterest page and our Google+ page. In both cases, every artist gets credited when we post one of their paintings, with links back to their painting on the Running With Brushes website, and if possible their website again.
