A year ago I was still painting watercolors of the Pacific Northwest (typical example ablove) in and from my studio on the Fraser River in Vancouver. I had a show that was a modest success with the sale of 30 pieces in the 3 day event. After the show I found myself unable to paint yet another watercolor of a Northwest scene.
The BP oil spill was n the news so I switched to acrylics and did some environment pieces. The elections followed and I’ve had some fun with political events.
Working with acrylics has been liberating because it’s easy to mix in other mateials like, broom straws, feathers, leaves and things I cut out from magazines and newspapers.
Maybe when the world gets nicer I’ll go back to watercolor…stayed tuned.
