The Acrylic Project - update


"Love is Blind," AP#17

"We Got This," AP#16

Checking in with you on my acrylic project. I'm a little more than 1/2 way through and I think I'm starting to get the hang of this medium. Accept acrylic for what it is, let go of my expectations and go with the flow. Attitude is everything in painting and in life. Change your attitude, love the one you're with and before you know it, annoying idiosyncrasies become endearing qualities. 

This is my favorite part! Sending these little paintings off to new homes makes room in the Studio for more paintings. By the way, "Love is Blind" and "We Got This" are available. Click on each image to purchase.

The Acrylic Project continued...

 I'm still at it. A nice woman who purchased one of my paintings sent me a photo of how she has it displayed in her home. She agreed to have the photo shared with you.

I love it! It didn't occur to me that it could be left unframed. What a great idea. Thanks so much, Brie for sharing this with me. Because of this, I am now painting my edges...sorry I didn't think of it before.

These little paintings have been a joy and also a challenge. One day I had a meltdown and painted over a couple. It really is all about my attitude. Through The Acrylic Project I have met new purchasers and other artists willing to share tips about the medium and supplies. I have received a glowing review of my work in general (once again, thank you Brie!) and have even heard from a few artists who may try acrylic again.  

I just finished #13; all can be seen in The Acrylic Project on Daily Paintworks. Thanks to all who have supported me so generously, not only with a purchase but with encouragement and kindness.
