The Thistle’s Seed loves…
To try new art mediums and techniques, almost to the state of obsession. Tough problem, right?
Certainly at this point in the Seed's life knowing how to do one art medium really well is a big goal. The Seed really dreams of mastering one and only one medium. Besides, it's cheaper…not so much art stuff to buy and store. But…
The Seed suspects that this prospect is slim and not going to happen soon with three oil paintings, a mixed media watercolor, four traditional watercolor paintings, two acrylics on the shelf, two books to make, a quilt top to finish, and two embroidery projects progressing. “No bragging, ma’am, just the facts.”
Of all the mediums to choose from, the Seed would really like to learn how to master acrylic painting because like watercolor it is easy to clean but more multifunctional than any of the other painterly mediums... no more toxic, flammable thinners and the rest of oil painting’s sometimes complicated mechanics.
The Seed asks all Great Plains Watercolor Society members, "Of all of the art mediums out there on that vast list which would you like to master over and above all others… really master? Is it a new medium or one you currently enjoy, but want to know even better?"
