Do you want to know a secret?
Welcome to the fourth edition of The Pulse -- The State of the Art -- a survey in words and pictures of the online artist community. The Pulse is a collaborative project that aims to introduce you to new artists, help you get to know familiar faces even more, and allow you access into the creative hearts and minds of a very talented crew of individuals.
Over 150 (!) artists have answered a series of questions which make up The Pulse. Their responses will be presented as a series of online and print projects. And the first continues right now!
Join the The Altered Page every Sunday for "Secret Sunday." Here the secrets of all your favorite artists will be revealed. It could be a technique, a product, a secret source, a little-known website, a hidden shop, an inspiration, just about anything! If you missed any, no worries. You can find links to all the secrets on the sidebar of my blog.

Not sure how much of a secret this blog is, but I often go there for inspiration. Although Randal Plowman’s blog is designed specifically to sell his collages, they can be very inspiring: A Collage A Day

It's hard to find good art workshops in the neighborhood, but my secret for my huge evolution the past four years are the online workshops. They are mostly very affordable, you get direct information from the artists, they "teach" with videos and answer questions... These workshops are perfect to learn new things right at home and open a world you hardly could have imagined and get you connected with artists and fellow-students from all over the world.

JOIN. Join in with other artists!! The very FIRST thing I ever joined here on line, was Emily Falconbridge's Deck of ME art journal prompts. Most recently, I participated in Stephanie Hilvitz' Dia De Bloglandia on Nov. 1st and Rebecca Brooks' benefit auction. Taking part in these types of events has brought me into contact with some AMAZING artists!!

I adore Mike Rivamonte's work. He cleverly assembles whimsical robot type sculptures by recycling old scientific instruments, mechanical devices and discarded vintage objects. Each piece that he constructs has it's own uniqueness and charm.

Up until this moment, the coaching I have received from life coach Leslie Miller has been a secret but now the cat is out of the bag! It really has been one of the most positive and rewarding experiences of my life.
