Re: needed words from lessons learned
- -I agree with Vi, who has been my invaluable mentor for the past
three years. It helps greatly to have someone to discuss your
marbling with - someone who can make suggestions and observations,
but the art of marbling is a process, something that evolves
gradually. Even the most highly skilled marbling teacher such as Mimi
can only teach what you can absorb in a given time. The process of
marbling seems to me to be more of practice, observation, study and
help from others who are more skilled, rather than one of
concentrated tuition. I wish you well in your endeavours to obtain a
grant, and would be interested to hear how you progress if you do
succeed. For some reason I regard marbling as somewhat arcane, with
elements of chance and mystery, so for me the journey is far more
fascinating than the end results. Joan Ajala-- In Marbling@y..., "V.
