Italy

Here we come... another small acrylic. The show is beginning to take shape. i have completed about 4 small paintings.. with another 3 half done.

In a few days.... I will be able to post more of them. I am seduced by the Naples Yellow and musky RED OXIDE from Liquitex. Both pigments have permeated my work.

Some of the paintings are on AMPERSAND gessoed shadowbox. I like the look and surface, and they won't need frames!

Carol - the glow in this painting is amazing. I have been working on Ampersand for my large floral oil paintings. The frames are beautiful and I have been waxing them for extra color. Thanks for sharing your process and color selection - it is working!
