I started to find my style a few years back when I found I love watercolors; I enjoyed making huge messes of colors and patterns on large sheets of paper. I later moved to acrylics because they last longer. But how to incorporate my love of realism? I finally started to mix the huge abstract mess with the tight portraits and loved what I ended up with! Each art work has an acrylic background and an oil front with the goal to seamless blend the two mediums and styles. I also throw in a stencil in each piece...see if you can find it.
