IF there’s paint left in that brush…USE IT! 3rd Tip for Multi-Tasking Multi-Media Artists

OK so let’s recap…..Multi-tasking as a Multi-Media Artist!

1. Just because it’s pretty doesn’t mean it’s practical… 

2. Get out the duct tape and divide up that room….If you can’t see it you won’t use it…Out of sight out of mind… Collage Lab by Bee Shay

OK today we’re on number 3 of Multi-tasking as a Multi-Media Artist

3.  If there’s paint in that brush use it!!  Waste not, Want not….With Art at the Speed of Life by Pam Carriker

Forgive the Silver Patron shirt in the video!  I won’t lie…it’s one of my favorites!!!

  • Things you’ll learn in this video…
  • 1. Creating a Substrate
  • 2. Book: Art at the Speed of Life
  • 3.  Why Home Depot is the coolest store ever for under-funded artists
  • 4. How paper towels can be so cool!!
  • 5. Don’t put that brush in water until it is as empty as it gets! 
  • 6. And you don’t have to always use expensive products to do the cool projects in these great books!
  

   

 

 

 

IF there’s paint in that brush USE IT!!

 

A substrate I’m working on for Art at the Speed of Life…love the background, we’ll see what the foreground has to hold!! But I didn’t waste an ounce!!

 

 

 

For a Multi-Media Artist ADD means Addicted to Amazon Desperately!! (Wait that AAD :-)

I am a book addict AND I’m ADD and it’s consuming my life! 

You see there’s this little place called Amazon.com and the little fact that I’m not only an artist but and art teacher so I am ADDICTED to ordering art technique books from Amazon!

Then I can’t just READ them….NO…I have to start every project in them…ALL AT ONCE…and at this point my studio might as well be divided with little walls of duct tape like a child dividing his room from his little brother….collage lab in this corner, abstracts on the rocking chair, illustrations on the easel, block prints on the table, Art at the Speed of Life on my bed in my journal, and even drawing lab on the floor of my studio…right smack in the center…

But you know what…I’m doing it…I’m doing it all…I’m a little crazy yes and anyone who knows me understands that fully, but I’m doing all these projects simultaneously and loving it!!!

So I thought I’d share.

Over the next few posts (whoever’s out there reading) I thought I’d share some work I’ve done with each book, finished or not and maybe even share the mess that’s gone along with it in my life and in my studio.

My goal is to show you that you can Multi-task as a Multi-Media Artist!  And you can Love it!

And Yes while copying and pasting these images from Amazon I ordered another book!!!
