Going for it Big Time


Finally I've been able to go big! 30 x 40 canvases are now easy to manage with some basics from Jane Filer's approach toward underpainting. My new ventilation system makes an hour or two in front of a canvas safe for me. So I am off and running--and running up my paint bill.

Here is a stab at painting my old waterfall sketches in acrylic while taking advantage of the fun things that I do with my house paintings.

Wow!! I've looked at some of Jane Filer's websites and she is fantastic. So colorful and uplifting. Can't wait to see your new work. I'd love to take a class from her... You are so lucky!

It comes up wonderfully large and detailed when I click on the image! Delightful, fun and spirited. It's great that you have found a safe, healthy way to work with acrylic.

This is great - such fun, bright colors! It makes me feel lighter the longer I look at it.

I've recently decided to be satisfied with painting small (for now), just to be able to get some painting in - but I love to paint bigger! Much more satisfying.

Thank you all for your comments on my new work. While texture is very new to me, houses and linear work has been with me a long time. I need your encouragement right now and appreciate it.
