Silver Fish

I used liquid acrylics on a previously  poured on water colors, a mixed media on 16x20 Archie's watercolor paper.  A successful experimentation, it worked!

Love it myself, if I may say so!  Gives me a sense of peace and calm.

Birdie

One just wants to paint every one of those darling birds around here.  Such brilliant colors on such humble looking birds.  They are every where, you just have to gaze into some bushes or trees and there they are!

This one is a 20x20x1 1/2 work in oil on gallery wrapped canvas.

Yes, it's been a while!  I miss working in oils and every now and then I'm drawn to it, less than I desire but what can you do when you react to the smell of oil even though I never use toxic thinners and such.
