I am looking at my responsibility as a citizen and an artist within that scope to look at how the materials I use effect the environment. I am in the process of transitioning into the use of non-toxic, earth friendly paints and supplies and invite other artists to step up to this challenge.
Here are some great resources to make the shift accessible: http://www.bioshield.com/ , http://www.ecoartworks.com/ , www.treehollowtoys.com/lystart.html.
Love to hear from anyone who is doing this or interested. Happy 2009!
