The seven pieces I have created for this show have a different feel than most of my previous work. The first reason being that these have been my first works of art that were created with acrylic paints.
I wrote previously about my battle with finding a medium that works for me. Working with a new medium opens the way to new possibilities that would never have otherwise existed and I am glad to say that my art education is an ongoing one.
For now, I am in love with acrylics. They dry faster than oil paints, do not require framing, are easy to clean up, and allow for a vibrant and expansive color palette. When I look at these pieces, I see the product of overcome obstacles and the start of a new direction (both personally and artistically).
My new series will be available for viewing now through the end of the month so if you can't make it to First Friday, do stop by later! For now, here is a preview of some of the work that will be shown.
