Fall Acrylic

fall landscape
6 x 6

Did another one of those little 6" x 6" acrylic on canvas paintings. This is just a wrapped around canvas. It was fun to do, but I feel like I am cheating since I have painted in watercolor all of my life.

Today I went to see the David Becker 11-11-11 exhibit at the Palette and Chisel in Chgo. It was the closing of his exhibit which was up for 11 days. Today was also his 50th Birthday. What a way to celebrate. I even bought one of his paintings. I will be happy to hang it in my studio for the students to see it. It was a fun night in the city.

Another little beauty! Even if it is acrylic (grin).

Are you going to share a photo of the David Becker photo you purchased?

Nice artwork.

Thanks Vickie...I have to grin, too. Using acrylics makes me feel like I am cheating. lol. I may be doing a bunch of these and give them for gifts. What do you think?

I would love to post David's painting, but I would have to get permission to do that. I really can't post it here since my photos on my blog go directly to my daily paintworks of which I am a member. There are some photos of his opening (closing) on his FB site.

I won't call it cheating! We do love changes at times and if we are enjoying it, so be it! And of course, this is a lovely painting :)

Kathy said...

Thanks Ramesh for giving me the permission to paint in "another medium." I guess we need to change every now and then to grow :)) Glad you like it.

Kathy said...

AK....isn't that the truth!!!! You can't beat that transparent look....but it was nice to correct something with thick paint. lol.
