Awesome Acrylic Painting

An artist comes in many forms. Here is a great example of how one type of art can lead you into many areas. Have you tried acrylic painting in your scrapbooks or on canvas? Give it a try! Think about the kind of wonderful addition it would be to your All About My Groovy Self book! Here is a truly great piece of art from Darlene ")

I used to attend Fashion Industries High School in NYC back a few years ago, and my elected major was art and graphic design. I had two periods of varied art classes everyday during my 4 years at Fashion. I learned how to work with acrylics, graphite, charcoal, and watercolors during my courses. This collage that I made for this photo showcases some of my better work during high school. Looking at this makes me realize how out-of-touch I am with painting and art! Upon looking through my older art recently, I decided to visit my artsy-ness and try my hand at painting again. Maybe in a few weeks I can share my newest painting with you... until then, won't you give painting on canvas a try? It is very calming and motivational, and you likely have all the supplies in your crafty home already! :)

  3. I knew this was a painting of you before it even said who it was! Great job! I have always only done watercolor painting as that was what my mother does. I also am a charcoal drawing fan as I did that in college. I have never tried acrylics and might someday. What a fun thing to share! Thank you!

  4. I added learn to paint to my 2011 list. I figure what's the harm in adding one more hobby..right? lol

    Great painting. I bet once you have your paint and brush it will be like riding and bike and all come flowing back, can't wait to see what you come up with
