Although I am in Florida it's chilly with frost outside and my floor is icy. This blanket which I often use to lie prone for long meditative prayer time is where I am planting myself. Here is where I am playing with my new fun medium of acrylic which after struggling with it for months, and even further back years where I just didn't get it, I am now enjoying it. I had a breakthrough yesterday just before leaving for OMA's 1st Thursday, which by the way was GRAND! Like anything else worth doing, practice gains skill and play leads to adventure. I can imagine those of you who work in acrylic are thinking what's all the fuss about. I will tell you although I am proficient in pastels and relish the medium I have been seeking an alternative which is easy to ship without glass. Another is ease of working larger, which often I use oil, my trained medium, but I am favor fewer of toxins. And lastly the glazing makes me giddy!
