Little Jersey

Little Jersey Calf, acrylic on board, 5 x 7 in.

This little Jersey calf is one of several new little works in acrylic and oil that I will be bringing to the Garden City Center Arts Festival. (Saturday, June 11th, 10-5., in Cranston, RI)

I have been enjoying working with acrylics lately. It's that time of year when I am much more pressed for studio time, and it's nice to be able to complete something, all the way to the signing, scanning and framing stage, in a much shorter time frame. Acrylic paints have come a long way since I last worked with them, and although I'm not sure that they would suit my painting style for a large piece, they are great for these little paintings on gessoboard.

Come out and see the Garden City Arts Fest! This is a new festival...looking forward to getting out there next Saturday.
