As I said before in this blog, I have started a new project, called Painting by Countries. My aim is to exhibit on that platform as many paintings from around the world (scapes, towns, nature, people, folklore) as possible, the challenge being to gradually cover the globe with paintings, according to the motto:
“Around the world in Arty days”
paintingbycountries.com is a site for artists and art lovers, run by an artist. I would love to invite painters from around the world to join me.
It is amazing how difficult it is nowadays to find artist interested in exhibiting their art in such places, even if it is free. I often wonder which is the reason. I suppose it has to do with mistrust, and doubts. But when you think about it, what is the risk here? I don’t see any, on the contrary. I give the artists the possibility to exhibit their work for free, linking them wherever they want, not even asking to upload good files, just good enough for the screen, so no risk to get stolen and misused on the net. Or do they think they are too good? I don’t know, but I find it worrying. For what is all this art good if nor to be seen and enjoyed?
Well, luckily, there are still artists who behave normally, and join. I want to welcome today our new member in Painting By Countries, Ion Vincent Danu, a wonderful artist and man born in Romania, and living in Canada. His works featuring landscapes and people from mainly Romania and Canada will be a great addition to the site.
If you are yourself one of this artists who would love to go around the world with us in arty days, just contact me at
As I said, it is FREE, and you can link each exhibited artwork to wherever you want.
I would like to add that my activity there is purely guided by my love for the art and our wonderful World!
