"Oak Phone 2"

This is an acrylic painting done on primed and sanded hardboard, 8"x10".  I really like working with acrylics because I can get many layers of transparent colour and enjoy the textures that I put down.  "Put colour on with the right hand, and blow it dry with the hair dryer in the left hand".  I really have worked that way, especially under the gun with a deadline when I worked commercially.  I like to do things made from wood 'cause you can get some fun graining, and the wall in the background has a lot of layering and scraping.  It's almost like building something.  I would have been a good finish carpenter.
