Listen closely…can you hear it?

Can you hear the voices? Thoughts, insights, confessions from the creative community sharing ideas, trading secrets, venting frustrations; asking and answering questions such as, "What color rarely shows up in your work?" or "How do you express vulnerability in you art?" Or "What is one current trend that you wish would go away?" As artists, we are curious by nature and there is a longing to see inside the hearts and minds of artistic souls of our own kind. That is the beat of our lives—the Pulse of Mixed Media!

In this book—a complex survey of artists around the globe—there is much for you to discover:

  • Visual insights: Many questions are answered not only in words, but often through visual art, and include self-portraits from 31 spotlight artists such as Pam Carriker, Danny Gregory and Judy Wise.
  • A diverse sampling of provocative questions: Over 100 artists share their thoughts on everything from color, media and tools, to emotions, secrets and self-revelations
  • Insightful sidebar statistics: Data from thousands of participants collected through polls on the author's blog reveal a remarkable analysis of the creative community at large
Indulge your inner voyeur and soak up some inspiration with The Pulse of Mixed Media today!

User Review  - marilynsantiago - LibraryThing

Fascinating collection of a hundred artists; self portraits of how they each see themselves, paintings that represent ideas, as well as each of them sharing a little of their souls and ideas. It is a fun book to pick up, enjoy, put down and then pick up again. I am glad I bought it. Read full review
