Hey, I hope all have had a wonderful week! work today was very tiring so I thought I would catch up and chill out!
Janise, I checked out you link and I too love your use of vibrant colors. Have you considered selling prints of your originals? I know my daughter who is also an artist would love your work too. I will show it to her. I too would love your insights on your Etsy experience. Also how does it compare to your web site?
www.etsy.com/shop/PurpleDragonflyArts, is my link
Melissa, I personally don't do collage but I have read about it in my art books and I know there are mediums made by liquitex that are for that purpose. They have also thick mediums that I have seen used where they use organic items, ie. bubble wrap, burlap, a key, etc to imprint and then they add color layers, it creates a collage look and might be an added dimension. I find books to be a great how to resource.
Tony, I love your thought provoking questions!
Billie, I hope in the demands of supporting your family that you still have time to create! You have a real eye for capturing absolutely beautiful flowers! I have no idea how you would go about this but I have taught water colorists who paint flowers and it is always a challenge for them to find images to paint. Is there a way to market the images as references to artists? Anybody else know?
Roy, could you message me the how too's of your art on the street fundraisers? My daughter and I would like to do something like that here in Nashville. She attends the Nashville School of the Arts, Magnet High School. Most of the kids are really talented, I think it would be a great experience for them
Janice- love your color :) thanks for linking to your site!
Thanks Patti and Janise- my usual m.o. is to go to an art store, stare at products and try to guess the top 3 that would work as I look them up on my phone :) I would not have thought of using a spray adhesive- thanks very much!
Melissa, I do some collage work. I use spray adhesives. Although, I work mainly with light weight papers (magazine scraps, newspaper and tissue paper) so I'm not sure how well spray adhesive would work with heavier watercolor papers but I do know that this Elmer's Extra Strength Spray Adhesive is no joke and may meet your needs.
I just checked out the Work Your Art site. Looks interesting- I've signed up for the weekly emails.
Does anyone work with collage? I started using parts of old watercolors to include in my collages but its hard to get the thicker paper to stay (without putting a few heavy books on top- which seems problematic in the long run) with the current polymer medium I'm using. Just curious if someone else has ran into this problem.
Thanks for your opinions on the website. I appreciate it!
Guys, I just looked back to page 1 and realized that in Oct. we will be celebrating 5 years on this forum! Can you believe it? I'm trying to think of those who have been here since the beginning. I know that Deborah Eaton and Jim Harris were here . . . anyone else been around that long? Billie?
Jeanne, I'm curious about that site too. I think it's the one Dan Miller mentioned in his newsletter a few weeks back. It looks interesting, but seems a bit expensive on a per month basis. Do they have a free trial? I'm gonna go check.
