Love this. I also love how you use acrylics like oils. I have used oils for years but recently have been playing around with acrylics and loving it. Do you find acrylics to be as marketable as oils, do people care?

Hi Barbara
thanks! acrylics are really fun. I love both but truth be told i'm way faster and more daring with acrylics. as for marketable, i don't get the impression that anyone cares whether oil or acrylic. they don't crack with age, as oils can, they stay flexible indefinitely, which is a plus for the archival factor.
