Acrylic Dreams...

Obviously this is from a while back.  It is approximately 3" x 3.5", watercolor and ink. The Flemish style of painting is one of my favorites, and what better way to study it than to copy a master?

Currently I am learning to use acrylics. Other than the finger painting days of kindergarten, I've never used them.  (That was acrylic, wasn't it?) They follow me to bed and infiltrate my dreams.  I even had a dream where someone was showing me some techniques.  Sometimes I cannot fall asleep as the colors and images dance around energetically, willing me to get back up and put them down on canvas.  Not such a bad thing, I think.
