Here is one of the newer acquisitions to my growing art collection. This one was created by a fairly new artist (an MBA student who was challenged by a professor to “do something outside your comfort zone”). Who knew there was a latent artist waiting to explode on the scene with a fresh perspective. Using heavy-body acrylics, inks, and dyes, Duane is able to create a look of “freshly-painted” or “still wet” in all of his pieces. It was love at first sight for this one (as are many of my acquisitions). The artist: Duane Duvall; the title: Pearl Garden; the medium: heavy-body acrylic (and palette knife). The thickness of the paint also provides this piece with a bit of a 3-D appearance as the images/forms seem to leap right off the canvas at you.
Some Heavy-Body Acrylic!
