Good afternoon on this Sunday. Nice cool day lots of sun and it is suppose to warm up more during the week. Looking forward to it,

"Crunchy Snow" is my latest painting, it came about from another painting I had done back in the fall  titled "Winter Woodlands" It was a watercolor and ink painting.

 I wanted to try using some acrylic in this painting. I started with 300# paper and I covered it with acrylic medium before applying the acrylic paint.  The slick surface created by the medium let the watercolor paint have a greater transparency as I painted the trees. Once they were painted I then scrapped and highlighted them with a old credit card. It created a nice effect that way. This paint is 16x20 Matted. 

 Other updates my booth space in Bartow Florida is #121. The show is March 5-6, 2016. The show in Winter Haven Florida is March 19-20. I have not received my both space yet for it. Also Dixieland in Lakeland Florida  is having a Artfest April 16, 2016. I will have a booth there with a mxture of old and new art. Lot of stuff going on with my art. Trying to get alot of new pieces ready for these shows. Last but not least the Lakeland Art Guild has a juried show at the Lakeland Center Main Lobby that will run from February 22 until April 19, 2016. I have two of my watercolors in that show

 Have a blessed week and be safe. Talk soon. See Ya!
