No Child Left Inside


Here is my latest (40 x 30, acrylic). For a person who never liked texture in my watercolors, I have turned into a texture queen in this painting. Actually, I spent a lot of time toning down first natural textures that occur with this style of painting, then the textures that I created or saved along the way. Does it work for you?

It works for me. I like the balance and the colour and the sense of child like wonder and creativity.
I hope it is all right if I link your blog in my list of favourites?

I enjoy your rich, festive image! The texture definitely adds to the visual pleasure!

Susan, this is by far one of the most original concepts I've seen!

Thank you Vera!! I appreciate that you are seeing more that a painting for some kid's room. (The usual comment that I hear.) This is going into a gallery's window for a month. We will see what the local's think of it.
