My plan is to do a whole lot of experimenting with all types of medium this year.
What about you? Are you set on the same medium? Maybe you are really successful, or maybe your stuck! Either way I always think there is something to be learned by just about everything we see or read.
I get bored with the same thing all the time, some people don’t. They love doing what has worked for them, I can relate to that, but my comfort with doing the samething still runs out after a while. I’m ready to learn, or grow, sometimes even just stop and refill my reserves.
As far as I’m concerned, if I’m not pushing myself, I’m not growing and learning. I love to learn and I always loved going to school and learning. I’m always amazed at how diverse my community can be. I’m facinated with people from different cultures; how they love different colors, have different ways of living. I have always loved people and their diversity.
The little painting above was created with Acrylic Ink. After painting three or four with watercolor, and experiencing the excitement of using watercolor, I decided to use something a bit different…like acrylic ink. Ink works much like watercolor, and I love how it bleeds. I make a real effort to incorporate each medium with other mediums like tissue, or stamps. Who knows what will end up, as always?
