Variety in edges and luscious colors.  Those are my intentions in this new piece that is a 36" square, acrylic on canvas.  I am working with acrylic inks and acrylics to achieve luminosity and a loose technique that combines my love of watercolor and the forgiveness of acrylics.  Pink Peonies has a nice feel for Valentine's Day, which is right around the corner.

This January, 2017 has been warm, and rainy so far.  Warm for winter that is.  We have had many foggy days here in central Texas, and though I love the wonderful neutral colors of winter, I have to express myself with bright, happy colors.  I hope you enjoy my winter flowers, as they are out of my head and heart. Happy New Year!

Today seems like a good one to show some of my many watercolors.  I love the medium, but find that I am super picky about the look I want to present.  These have a softness that I am always trying to achieve.  There is also a variety of edges, though I admit that I will keep working to achieve even softer edges in places.  Thanks for taking a look!

White Poppies is 24" x 30" in acrylic.  I am having so much fun working this way.  My goal is to stay loose and create a great composition with value and then use color as jewels.  I will admit that staying loose was hard for me on this one so I used palette knife and drips to create shapes that I felt expressed my intention.  Hope you like it!
I am working on values and shades of gray with a little color lately.  This is an acrylic that is 24" x 20" and it is all about Reflections in The Water.

I have been working in acrylics for awhile and just thought I would work on a really loose watercolor with a definite focal point.  This one is 11" x 15" and it is called Memories of the Southwest.
