more ITALY!! acrylics


So... here are a couple of new acrylics on ITALY-- i worked hard this weekend on shaping up a few paintings.

I decided to sand the edges of the formerly black edges.. and keep the 2" cradle a beautiful sanded wood.

these paintings look sharp! they are tight... very resolved... and very professional.

i am getting psyched about this show~

Carol!

The first painting looks SUPER COOL!

Almost like a sandstorm effect with all the wild splatters of paint!

So original and neat looking!!
