There is just something about the sense of touch that I love. I love being able to run my hands across the canvas and feel the textures. I know that is a big no-no in the art world, but I say eff that noise. Touch my paintings, please.
I have found that over the past 2 years that I have been working with texture that I have fallen in love. There are just so many possibilities on what new places I can take the mediums. And I am discovering new textures that I haven't used before.
And, the bonus for me is that the process of working with the textures fits into my schedule. I find that I usually only have an hour or so in the evenings, more on weekends, to work. And, I can only do so much work until I need to let the texture dry. It is all perfect. Plus, having to work in stages really gives me time to reflect on what I am creating and where I need to go.
It's time for a change. While I have loved my blog, it wasn't doing what I wanted in terms of a website to showcase my artwork. I think this site will be that. I can update the blog with what I've been working on and thoughts about my process. And adding pictures to the pages with slideshow options will be so choice. This site is still a work in progress
