Love, love, LOVE the look of pastels. They are my favorite medium to work in for pet portraits and landscapes. I can also create a special memory for you from your favorite photo!
Acrylics are versatile paints. They can be thinned and applied gently to give a watercolor effect or used full strength and thickly, creating texture and contrast. I love to experiment bold and bright to create a rich vibrancy in my work.
The curves and organic shapes of leaves and petals always put me in the painting "zone." There is something calming and peaceful about connecting with nature in this way...a kind of "happy little flower" therapy. Who doesn't love a beautiful bouquet?
