This is the only painting from the current figurative series that I have completed. I hope to have a couple more completed by tomorrow. I only have a couple of weeks to paint if I want to have anything new to show at the Kirkland Art Studio Tour!
I work primarily with acrylic on canvas, board or watercolor paper. My style is loose and very colorful. I consider myself an experimental painter and often incorporate elements such as ink, graphite, paper, beads, clay and whatever else I happen across. Whether I am painting a landscape, still life or abstract, the subject is simply a vehicle for the color and stroke. I work from my imagination and go wherever the painting takes me,working on several paintings simultaneously. I call my work Joyful Art because creating it brings me such joy.
