My most recent paintings from January, 2022 explore acrylic staining techniques where I paint on both sides of thin unprimed canvas. The images are of children on amusement park rides, but the style is more free. Loosely painted lines form the narrative elements. Drips and bleeding stain marks are absorbed into the raw canvas- becoming part of the composition. The imagery is similar but the technique is a break from the more laborious realistic oil paintings that I have been creating.
