This past month I have been quietly working but in a new direction. The subject matter has remained constant (the Alberta land) but I have moved into acrylic paint. The sizes of my paintings vary from 8 x 8 to 18 x 24 and all on cradled birch panels. Most of these new works are in preparation of a small solo show at Londonderry Public Library for the month of May. I am enjoying this new venture more than I anticipated (I never really embraced acrylic paints prefering the "juiciness" of oils). By using a glazing medium with the paint I am able to build up layers of colours similar to my pastel works. I have also incorporated the palette knife in many of my works. I think that these early paintings are a good start in a new direction...
