Artists are eager for their electronic muse(s)' input on unfamiliar techniques, materials and permission to play outside their comfortable past achievements in creating new pieces of art. A search for mixed media techniques takes me from YouTube to links on artist bloggers' sites to other artist bloggers. I could easily become a couch potato, eyes on the screen WATCHING other people MAKE art.There soon comes for me not enough hours in the day...it's a good thing I'm "retired" or I wouldn't have time for all the new things in my life (like painting on water....check this one out below!).
