March 2011 featured many wonderful painting blog posts on diverse topics ranging from hard-edged abstraction to the Danish Golden age of figure painting and by a mix of established art writers and artist bloggers. Sadly, March also saw the passing of Gabriel Laderman, in my mind one of the most important painters of the last 50 years. Laderman's life and work were celebrated on-line several places most notably by Jed Perl and by painter Larry Groff on his blog Painting Perceptions.
March also saw the creation of a new section on Painters' Table: Artist to Artist. Artist to Artist features interviews and studio visits conducted by artist bloggers – artists talking to fellow artists about their studio practice, influences, and work.
