Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

I fell in love with phthalo blues (the green and the red shades). Then, by accident, I purchased some Golden interference colors (blue, violet, green, red). A happy madness took over and suddenly I was breaking away from doing mixed media paintings of my animals (the process of building things on canvas is such a pleasure) and instead began to build color on top of interference on top of color. Suddenly only paint was going on my canvas - a lot of paint.

My go-to paint brands are predominately Golden and Liquitex. Sometimes Utrecht, Blick and Sennelier creep in there, too. The brushes used are whatever is hanging around not covered in paint.

I also use a lot of cotton cloths to blend the paint around.
Oh, yes, and my trusty spatula knife.

Almost all of my paintings are finished off with my own painting-framing technique, which allows the paintings to be hung without frames. The process is organic, with me putting a lot of Payne's gray in the palm of my hands, and then palming the color around the sides of the painting - bleeding over the edge a bit - so the sides of the painting are black. Payne's gray was the first paint I used to do this, and it's sort of a good luck thing. I like to think that the luck is passed onto whomever is looking at the paintings. The buyers who have decided to have my work frame, tend to use floating frames.

I'm a published novelist. I've written 4 novels (translated into 14 languages). But I love painting more. (Between January and April of 2017, I have painted over 75 paintings - large and small). My novels were deemed funny and people wrote that my stories brought them great pleasure and happiness. I hope that my paintings will do the same.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.
