Switching Media


Porcelain Garden

 12 x 16 inches on wood cradled panel
I've used acrylics a great deal in the past and now and then revisiting them.  I used them more for
decorative painting but now and then I come back to trying them out as a fine art medium.  I don't
paint the same way as I would with oils but this time I thought I'd make a concentrated effort to use them this way.  I have a friend who runs a tea room and florist shop so it's always so tempting to
re-arrange her wall of teacups (little works of art on their own) and take pictures.
This will be part of a series.  How many are considered a series?  Hopefully more than three.  Oils
are a pretty strong call for me but acrylics and watercolors give me joy too.
I will be adding a closeup photo later today.


Having fun these first few months of the year participating in Lilla Rogers MATS Bootcamp 2015.
Working towards assembling a portfolio of work for possible licensing.  I've done a sprinkling of
freelance illustration work but would like to have a stronger presence in that field.
