The latest...

I'm mostly fooling around with acrylic monotype, the little one on canvas (Wishes from the Lake, May 10, 2009, 6 x 6), and a few on paper in my sketchbooks have been fun and very satisfying. I really love that green that I made...it just reminds me so much of Lake Ontario...

I really need to invest in some good Fabriano or Rives to really make something nice, for now, I'm splashing and working out what I want to do...
I'm really loving this baby blue with naples yellow combination...


And this is Lavender Wishes...

My nifty birthday easel...(yes, I've gotten it "dirty" since the photo was taken!)

I love the softness of the colours and I too love the green you created.

I'm crazy for naples yellow and monotypes make great surprise beauties. I bet on Rives BFK when you are ready to translate to the good stuff. These are just wonderful!

I love BFK Rives...every time I go to the art store I wander over to the paper section and fondle the textures...and I love the Rives best of all! It just has a lovely feel to it, I have a few small pieces in my scrap box that I've been "savoring" for years! A friend of mine, who is a printmaker, gave me all of his scraps when he moved away, it's just the best stuff! I know its texture without seeing the watermark, it's special stuff.
