About a week and a half ago, I received a copy of Pam Carriker's "Art at the Speed of Life". It's a wonderful book. I have had a hard time putting it down -explains why I'm behind on laundry! One of her suggestions is to multi-task; when you are preparing one substrate for an art project - prepare three or four. Over this past weekend I guess you could say I multi-tasked; I painted a base coat on three canvases and I painted four dryer sheets for upcoming embroidered collages. Boy does it feel good to have accomplished so much!
