I asked you a few weeks ago about your art practice. How does art fit into your life? And what is your main medium. Here are the results from that survey:
"I want to make some kind of art and every once in a while I try, but I don’t know where to start. I have watched lots of videos and bought tons of classes, but feel unhappy and dissatisfied with everything that I do."
"I love printmaking and collage but I'm a beginner and am always frustrated with what I create, which makes me want to do it less, so I sabotage myself by always finding other things to do, like household chores. I"m trying hard to overcome this block."
"It is like breathing to me, necessary to my life and wellbeing. It keeps me connected with all of life self-healing wholeness."
Not surprisingly, the greatest segment of responders work in acrylic and collage, same as me. The vast majority of "other"responses, again not surprisingly, said watercolor was their main medium.
A couple of quotes from 'other' responders:
"I am a ceramicist and create underglaze abstract “paintings” on my slab-built vessels. I explored 2-D through clay monoprinting, which led to acrylic painting. I now work in the two mediums — clay and acrylic — in a complementary fashion."
"Watermedia: tempera gouache watercolor Materials that are plastic free and eco friendly"
In addition to these, we got: artist's books, polymer clay, mosaic, soft pastels (another medium I should have included in my list), repurposed house paint, found materials, and a few other painting/drawing media such as ink, crayon, and so forth.
Here is February's survey. This one asks about your workshop preferences and your advice for beginners. I will share results at the beginning of March. THANKS for participating!
