Spring Blooms

"Spring Blooms"
This acrylic monotype was created during a beautiful spring moment.  It could be viewed horizontally as well as vertically.  Soft warm beige, rustic reds, and bright yellow contrast with one another to suggest what spring blooms give us--a happy feeling with a softness that to me says "spring."

The surface is firm, plastic-like created by the strong bond of the Golden Fluid acrylics to the high quality printmaking paper.  Each of these paintings are one-of-a-kind that can't be copied.  The size of the image is 8" x 10".

The challenge for me, as the artist, is to imagine what will happen as I lay down paint then paint over it with more and more layers.  The first layer is what ends up on top as the acrylic painted is transferred to the paper.  It is all rather unpredictable yet exciting to make.
