I'm a mixed media artist because I love mixing up media and techniques and more media and more techniques. Sometimes I flat don't like what I'm creating or how it's all going together. But I press on. I might add a bit of collage to camouflage what I don't like. Or I'll add a large layer of something created separately (like the butterfly inset by my artist friend Tanya when we were experimenting with wax rubbings and watercolors).
At some point the motley collection seems "done" and a title signifies my artsy reflection. Here I am simply reminded that it's okay to experiment. In art. In vocational calling. In recreational pursuits. In life. Experimenting is powering.
