Super cool! I too love your style Smiley

What kind of acrylics do you use?

Thank you so much! Talk about style-- I can't believe that quilt you made! A. Maz. Ing.

I messed up in the post, the first on is actually water color, ink and white acrylic on paper glued to wood. The third one (nude/yellow bird) is all water color on paper.

For paint I use Liquitex Basics (cheap) and then sometimes Delta, or whatever other brand comes in those little bottles from Michaels (CHEAP!). For water color I know what brand because it's so cheap it just comes in little gray plastic tubes with a sticker of the color. Whatever was the cheapest of the package deal. I use the paint brushes that come in packages that are a couple of dollars for about ten various styles. Nice brushed are pointless for me because I leave them in jars of water for days and ruin them!

How cool! Imaginative, well executed..a little unsettling, yes, but that's what's so great.

No! Thank you! Most people remark that I write like a child. I work at a large homeless shelter where we log everything, and I was told a long time ago to not even bother.... Ha!

Hell yes, a shout out to Liza! I was obsessed with her. One of the most... she was... there just are no words. Did you ever see that creepy old school movie "Whatever happened to Baby Jane?" well what happened was I ended up in a class with her. Her make up was like oil paint and she wore the most incredible fire red wig. She was a Ukrainian who questioned everything in her heavy accent, cried randomly and would write down everything someone said in her own secret short hand symbols.I am in no way making fun of her-- I truly loved being in her presence.

No, no etsy or anything like that. Just my friends and my walls. But god, please, someday someday someday, let me make it as an artist....

These are amazing. I like them all but I really love the first one. You should have no problem being an artist. From what I see you are one and your style is definitely the kind of art I spend money on.

These are sooo cool, they would make great tattoos! What a wonderful creative vision you have, do you sell your art somewhere?

These are so emotive, awesome work! I'm loving the first and last ones, although the rest are great too.
