Going Through Withdrawal

It has been ages since I've been able to pull out the supplies and play. My fingers are itching to be covered in paint, glue, glitter, rusty metal, paper, ribbon, and whatever else I can find! Alas, everything is packed in a POD, somewhere...

The good things- amongst others- about our move is that I get to pick a room for my studio. It will be a huge blessing to have a place to spread out, and to work simultaneously on projects!

I hopped over to JoAnnA's Art Journal blog this morning, and then hopped again (at her suggestion) to Seth Apter's The Altered Page. Seth has just put together the fourth edition of The Pulse, Welcome to the fourth edition of "The Pulse -- The State of the Art -- a survey in words and pictures of the online artist community. The Pulse is a collaborative project that aims to introduce you to new artists, help you get to know familiar faces even more, and allow you access into the creative hearts and minds of a very talented crew of individuals."



To share all of this information, Seth will be hosting Secret Sunday on his blog: Over 200 (!) artists have answered a series of questions which make up The Pulse. Their responses will be presented as a series of online and print projects. It is an amazing gift of information for all us artists out here- budding or otherwise! I have been in heaven all day, browsing blogs and seeing what other artists are doing. It has made me excited and inspired again- I love mixed media art!

Now if I could just get to my supplies...
