New paintings on paper

 Crossroads   acrylic and collage  on paper   SOLD
 Urban Edge acrylic and mixed media on paper

A change from painting on canvas. Started working on paper in the studio and really like the results.
I am using 300 lb watercolor paper so it is plenty strong and could easily be shown without glass in a frame. I am liking the way it absorbs color and allows the lines to stay strong.

PS: I changed the design of the blog- had some  negative feedback about the black background  so am trying white. Appreciate any comments on the white versus black.

Just found some photos from the Art Students League of Denver's website for last year's Summer Art Market. Carlos Fresquez and I were the jurors and we had a very hard time picking winners from so many fabulous artists. I went yesterday ( 99 degree heat !) but it was well worth the time. Some wonderful artists. Don't miss it today.
