Textured Acrylic Painting #1

Textured Acrylic #1
8" x 8" textured acrylic on canvas

This is a new contemporary art series that I have begun. These little 8" x 8" acrylic paintings are textured with various mediums in different ways... I am finding this exploration great fun! As well, it fulfills a couple of goals for me. One was to do something for the first time twice a month. This is the first time I have ever painted a textured painting like this. As well, I had a goal for 2010 to explore different mediums and styles of painting - and this is definitely a departure from my "usual" style!

Watch for more in this series on upcoming blog entries. These are the kind of paintings I think would make a great corporate collection, or hung in the restrooms of high end restaurants. They are really beautiful!

Wow! Love this! Will the whole collection be iridescent?

Joanne said...

Yes - each one has at least one iridescent paint in the plan. :-) They are like little jewels! :-)

Wow Mom - this is AMAZING and I can't wait to see it in person. You are talented, inspirational, and incredible.

Thanks, Jess!!! You will love it even more in person. The photo does not show how beautifully it glows with the iridescent paint! And you, my dear girl, are an awesome daughter (in-law)!!! HUGS.
