After a busy two weeks having fun with family visiting us here in Texas, I am finally getting back into the studio.

"Ice and Lace" is my latest painting.  The canvas is heavily textured, accented with metallic gold and a collaged,

YUPO and where the heck does the time go?

Acrylic on YUPO

 

It's been a long time since I posted anything on my blog, and I didn't want you to think that I had somehow fallen off the planet.  Visits from family, normal every-day obligations and probably some laziness has played a part in keeping me away from contributing anything new to this blog.  Spring is also here and all those chores associated with getting the gardens ready have also played a huge role in my absence.


Anyway, while looking through my files, I came across some paintings that I had done on YUPO a while back.  If you have never tried this amazing product, I hope you will some day.  YUPO is actually a synthetic plastic material that was originally used to make tough, tear-proof labels.  I suppose some poor artist accidentally dumped his watercolors on packing material he had laying around in the studio and discovered the amazing properties of YUPO.  Because the paint isn't absorbed into the material, it can dance around on the surface, drying in interesting puddles and shapes.  Many artists work in watercolor but I prefer fluid acrylics, which stain the material permanently and can't be manipulated when dry.

Prelude to Spring

Prelude to Spring

36"x36"x1.5"

Acrylic on Canvas


This is a commissioned painting I just completed for a client.  The colors are very soft and muted on a very textured canvas.  I started out by using a palette knife to apply the paint on the canvas and finished by applying glazes of color to create a softer look.  I "washed" the pink in the middle of the painting and did a little spraying with water to create some texture.  Overall, I'm very pleased with this painting and hope the client will too.
