Okay, I have to say this ~ I LOVE GETTING MESSY with art. And there is just no better way to get messy than with mixed media. I have absolutely no idea what I am doing, but really have felt the need to just try something NEW with my art for a long long while.
It started when I took Kelly Rae’s Flying Lessons. I could not get enough of all the textures, the colors, the ‘stuff’ that she used to create her art. And I believe she is now releasing a new class on Mixed Media this Feb, which I am dying to try. But for now, I am LOVING this class by Christie Tomlinson. Seriously, there is something about her use of color that I am totally crushing on. I am a big big believer in bright color and I think that this is going to be a good fit for me. And how can I not love that this woman has as many children as I do and is a rock star artist that literally supports the family with her work! How amazing and wonderful is that?! She is my hero.
Pardon the mess as I get organized in my new little studio (that one day I hope will grow into a big studio). Here is a peek at the yummy supplies I bought this past week. I have to say, buying art supplies is terribly addictive and at this very moment, I my finger is hovering over the ‘checkout’ button for Blick’s! Yikes!
Now, I am a humble acrylic painter, but I am going to jump into the deep end of something completely new. Are you with me?! I will do my very best to not be critical of myself and post my progress! So, come back and see how things go. Who knows, this may be the start of something beautiful!
