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.
