Whenever I get new supplies, I immediately make a color chart in my exploration journal. In making these color charts, I always off-load my brush on a separate sheet of paper or blank canvas before rinsing it and going on to the next color. This piece is the result of getting my first set of Turner Acryl Gouache (a fabulous acrylic gouache that is permanent once it dries). I had a ball making this surprise and delight. :)

This painting was made using acrylic gouache, ink, and a small amount of modeling texture paste (Viva Decor) on 100# Bristol.

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.

    Such an outstanding “play” in paint. Your sense of color is off the charts, fabulous. Love all of these marks. They literally come to life, before my eyes. So happy to see in your Hullabaloo gallery, too!
