this was an experimental piece for me…

always wanted to try out the Jaquard Lumiere acrylic paint, and finally the other day, a customer at the art supply store I work at inspired me to bite the bullet and get a few jars of the Halo colors. Boy howdy am I glad I did. The label claimed that it went on over black (or other dark) backgrounds, and all evening, I was fervently hoping this to be true. Not only is it true, but none of the shiny gets lost on the black.

I love it so much.

finally met my little cousin face to face via Skype last night – her momma told me she really really really liked Sven, and since she sent me some awesome little kid art, I decided to paint this guy as a present and to keep her excited about art. Seemed to work!
