I purchased an iPad 2 just for doing artwork on and noticed with in 20 minutes of painting I am getting that memory warning. Can someone explain how I can be using so much memory on an iPad that doesn't have any images or music even other apps on it?

Memory and storage space are different things. Music, apps, video etc. take up storage space. Apps that are actively running use Memory to run, and sometimes memory doesn't get cleaned up properly when an app closes.

If you've got a large painting with lots of layers you might be using up lots of memory in ArtRage, but if you've run other applications some may still be open in the background which might cause a problem.

Follow the instructions here to reboot your iPad and clean out memory: http://www2.ambientdesign.com/forums/showthread.php?t=32970

The Memory section of the ArtRage help file also lists some things you can do to cut down on memory usage if there is a problem.
