My featured guest spot on “Artsy Shark”

This article was inspired by a conversation with Carolyn Edlund of the very cool blog Artsy Shark .  

It started out as a normal conversation on Facebook as I was asking questions.  She somehow was impressed with what I said and decided to write a blog post about it.  And I’m very pleased how it turned out.  There were many comments.  To date, I’ve had responses about artists visiting places like Italy, Australia, India.  Personally, I’m headed to Taiwan for a possible long-term relocation.  But I want to commit at least a few weeks to see if it’s a good spot for me.  I’ve connected with a few artists and read a lot about Taiwan.  I heard many good things about its culture and landscapes.  Boy, I can see myself painting on the beach now…but here’s a snippet of the article you can check out…maybe these questions you can play around yourself too.  Tell me what you think!

Where in the world would YOU travel to make art?


If you had no obligations,

If you had enough money to live for six months,

If you could travel anywhere that would inspire you,


Where would you go?

What would you do?

What would you create?

A testimonial from down-under, mate!

Here’s the latest testimonial when I met this cool Australian woman who bought one of my paintings yesterday, I wanted to share this:

“I was wandering around the little market in Santa Fe and stumbled upon Josh’s stand. I love the colour and vibrancy of his works. The prices are very reasonable… I am glad I bought a painting and will take it all the way back to Australia next week. Josh is a great bloke.. he spent time chatting and telling me about his art and is passion for painting…
