Other things have been the focus of my attention so I haven’t been blogging much lately. I have hopes that will pick up again soon. In the meanwhile I’ve posted a few more paintings in the gallery and updated the main page with a new image.
This latest group showcases some of the acrylic paintings I’ve been working on since the spring. Earlier this year I mentioned I was going to be trying out acrylics again after thirty years of studiously avoiding them, and overall I’m happy with how that’s been going. Turns out working with gouache was good preparation for dealing with the rapid drying time of acrylic paint.
And from a purely practical standpoint, there’s something to be said for not inhaling volatile solvents while you work.
