Technology is a Great Distraction
So what's an artist to do when the computer goes on the blink? I discovered that I had been paying more attention to techology than hands-on art making. Out came the art supplies along with a renewed vigor and passion for getting my hands dirty.
I sketched with soft pastels which I had not used in years. I painted some more on a painting I have been working on for months... apparently and getting distracted by the computer.
I took out the three plywood panels I had been wanting to do some mixed media work on. They received an experimental coating of spackle mixed with gel gloss medium to fill in the grooves and add texture.
I am writing this blog on my mobile phone. Please excuse any misspellings. I see no evidence that the spell checker is working.
So, what about you? Have you ever been distracted by technology? How have you overcome it?
