Random search on meetup. (am using this field as overflow) I had foot surgery in 2007, which kept me bed-bound for 4 months, during which I kinda went stir crazy. I began making ATCs with colored pencils (not mixed media) immediately. I still love them.
New friends, sharing. I think it's fair to note that I am mildly handicapped, which means that sometimes long drives make attending meetings difficult. However, once I commit, I do it whole heartedly. Am looking for a diverse, open minded, and friendly group to share art. Am also looking to expand into printmaking, on a very small scale, making bookplates occasionally.
To grow, always. Have worked into oil pastels on a miniature scale, play with many mediums, and have recently begun work in oils, which I dearly love. I began making ATCs with colored pencils (not mixed media) immediately. I still love them.
Stained and fused glass, metal clay, jewelry, fine art painting of all kinds and styles in miniature, not usually the human form though. I like all mediums.
Too many to mention.
I've been an artist all my life, but always unsure about it. I taught myself stained glass in 1980, fused glass in 1999, precious metal clay that same year, but painting always eluded me.
Very fun! Very open, accepting, friendly people, all smarter than the average artist ;)
