I decided to talk to you this week about different techniques of painting.  I will readily admit that I am not familiar with all the different types of painting.  I was very firm in my decision that I wanted to do realistic painting at a very young age.  In fact, my art teacher got very frustrated with me several times because I had no desire to try different types of art such as sculpting, collage, encaustic, so forth and so on.  She just couldn't understand that I had made up my mind what I wanted to do.  I wasn't interested and that was that.  Hurt my grades though!  Oh, well.  I didn't care.  I knew what I wanted to do and I wanted her to teach me that, and that only.   Any of you like that?  Hopefully I'm not the only one.  Interestingly, I still have no interest in those other types of work.  I enjoy seeing them but don't want to DO them.  Of course, there are more types of painting now than there used to be, maybe that has something to do with it.  I don't know.

     I have the book "ACRYLIC PAINTING FOR DUMMIES".  It is actually quite a good book.  It goes into several different techniques and explains them well so you might want to get a copy for yourself.  It is not expensive and is well written as I said.

     I am still busy painting and building up my supply for the next Art Walk.  I think I am about done though.  I will pick up the large painting for the Nature and Wildlife show again this week.  So look for my progress next week on the blog.  In the meantime, here are my latest paintings.  I post these on Instagram and Facebook for advertising of my work, and I get a lot of responses too!

     BTW, three of the paintings I posted last week have already sold!  That was fast!  That's what we all want right?  Enjoy these newest and as always, Thanks for looking!!
