ACRYLIC PAINTINGS

Early in my career I discovered acrylic paints - a non-toxic, non-smelly, fast drying and water soluble alternative to oils. Acrylic paints allowed me all the versatility of oils without having to wait for it to dry or endure the bad smells.  I have used acrylic paints on paper, canvas, corrugated cardboard, distressed plywood and fabric. My favorite method involves building up multiple thin washes of color in a watercolor style. This page contains pieces from my Sins of the Fathers series, my Goddess series, the Black Men I Have Known and Loved series and the original piece from the Streets of Atlanta series.
