Fun with Acrylics


When I bring out my plastic basket of acrylic paints it's like visiting an old friend I've lost touch with...or perhaps outgrown. I use them this time of year to paint my holiday cards. I felt like just messing around and doing a few wetland scenes. I'm slowly but surely revving up to go out and paint the marshes plein air...until then, these are just imaginary excursions. 5x7 panels

Your excursion looks fun. Glad to be along on your trek.

I especially like the contrast of the red and green in the first one.

Thankyou Jo...I think it's good to sometimes just let myself play with paint and paint images that are in my head. I drive to and from work everyday across meadows like these. I often see the sun rising like a red orb...a lot of natural beauty here in Southern New Jersey.
