Some Heavy-Body Acrylic!

Duvall - Pearl GardenHere 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.
