Some of my favorite art supplies

| 30 May, 2018 06:40

As I teach I am asked what supplies I recommend.  My first answer is buy the best you can afford.  The old adage "you get what you pay for" absolutely applies here.  

The paint I use is Golden Paints.  I love them for their strong pigment plus their vast selection of colors.  They have heavy body, open, fluid and high flow acrylics.  A plus is they are always available to answer questions.  Check them out!

The resin I use is Art Resin.  The clarity of their resin is excellent!  A great company to work with! 

I feel that the quality is important to not only me but my clients.

Thanks to all who came out to the 34th Melbourne Art Festival last weekend. I had a very successful show with my 3D fish painted in Art Resin. I am looking forward to developing new work for the upcoming fall season as this is my last show in the hot, humid south for the summer. My work can be found locally at Art Gallery of Viera, Art & Antique Gallery in Eau Gallie and Green Circle in Cocoa Village.

I was ready for this lovely 2 day event however the weather was not.  Beautiful first day and then the storm hit early Sunday Morning.  Unfortunately, my tent was practically destroyed.  Fortunately, I only lost one painting.  Much work to be done to be ready for Mt Dora Art Festival but I will get there.
