After almost a year of painting 5 x 7 small oil paintings, I've gone Big!!! I'm now in love with 30 x 40 acrylic paintings. This is my latest painting fresh off the easel. I've painted in acrylics before and the quick drying time was so frustrating, but now that I have hours of painting experience, it's a bonus to be able to rework an area quickly if it isn't working. And, not only have I gone big, but I indulge in the best linen canvas I can afford and believe me it makes a huge difference. Once I painted on this lovely surface, I decided I could never go back. Enjoy!
I'm an fine art artist in Raleigh, North Carolina. I need a paintbrush in my hand to feel complete and I invite you to follow me on my art journey. Everyday brings new ideas and projects... there simply is not enough time... On December 1, 2012, I joined the community of artists who paint a painting each and every day. I haven't been able to keep up with the daily painting, but I'm trying hard to keep my paintbrushes busy.
