April's Artwork in AcrylicWorks3: Celebrating Textures

April's paintings are on p32 and 37
Last spring I decided to enter a competition to have some of my fluid acrylic paintings included in this Best of Acrylics book by North Light. I entered two paintings and forgot about it.  I assumed my chances were low given the number of people who enter these competitions. But to my surprise not only one but both of the paintings I entered were selected to be included in AcrylicWorks3: Celebrating Texture.

The first step after learning my work was selected was to provide high resolution images for printing in the book and text describing my approach. The text is published with each piece. 

The paintings are shown in thumbnail size below. But you can see a preview of the book that includes my work on pages 32 plus 36 & 37. Page 32 has the landscape Struggles in the Southwest. Both the use of light and texture were critical to the success of this painting. The description for Moving Up is provided on page 36 with the image on page 37. Moving up is in the Figures chapter.  

The book is currently available as an ebook. The hardcover version will be released in April, how appropriate.  Let me know if you would like a signed copy of the book by contacting me here.
