Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

Layers of iridescent clear colors and lots of texture in this piece…. I wanted to accomplish a complex combination of iridescent effects, texturing, depth and movement that would captivate the viewer! Drips of clear tar gel layers applied overtime create a rich texture to the painting making all bright iridescent and interference colors come to life harmoniously. High quality Golden and Sennelier acrylics used. UV protected. Bold and colorfulI iridescent statement piece.

I include a certificate of authenticity that lists the materials as well as when the painting was completed. Fine high quality materials such as Golden and Sennelier products are used and UV protective enamel for sunlight protection.

Each painting is carefully packed and padded for a safe delivery. Paintings shipped with a tracking number.

New Year – New Mediums!

I like to experiment and push the limits…it’s really the ONLY way to make new discoveries! If you have never failed at something you have never tried something new…it just goes hand in hand BUT it also leads to amazing new places and discoveries!

So I saw some color new things online that I decided to try. One is a new type of acrylic paint imported from Japan. They are very vivid colors and called Holbein Artist’s Polymer Emulsion Opaque Colors – Acryla Gouache.

New Year and New Mediums go hand in hand!

New Year and New Mediums go hand in hand!

Next I ordered some interesting Oil Pastels sticks. I have used similar ones in the past on a few works for details and was pleased with the results so why not keep going! It’s a new year and I am always wanting to grow so I try new things all the time. As I said, the results are not always predictable but it’s the only way to get something special. I refuse to be an artist that perfects something and then spends the rest of his or her life doing over…and over…and over again!

I feel that the only way to really be a TRUE ARTIST is to always be pushing forward and never content to simply stay in the same place. As an artist I am oddly motivated to create and that is a living passionate force and not simply a stagnant frozen force. Passion burns because it is alive! You only live once so fell and live with passion.
