The magic that these materials create is just priceless and that's why I suggest using the absolute best quality of materials that you can afford. Please know though that this is certainly not a call to discard your current supplies. Some sense does apply and I am all for re-use where sensible.
My art is full of colour, and sings with the joy of life. I’ve had some pretty serious challenges in my life, so life definitely feels great and I want to share that joy I have. I am driven by the excitement of creativity. It is a journey with so many options and opportunities. It is very exciting. Every day I go to my studio I am super happy to be doing what I love and what I am most passionate about.
Are you a keen podcast listener? I'm totally addicted. I always have a podcast playing as I paint or type or run or drive. Recently I was listening to one particular podcast by two inspirational artists and they were chatting about the pros and the cons of giving art as a gift.
"Colour excites me the most and it's that which draws me into any artwork . I constantly try different colour combinations and place colours next to each other to see how they complement each other and if they are easy on the eye. I used to have colour swatches or cuttings from magazines of colours I like visible on my wall to help me with colour combinations."
I have just finished installing 14 of my artworks in my local cafe and am buzzing with excitement! It took a fair amount of energy to get prepared and installed but is incredibly worth it. There are so many benefits to going down this route with your art.
