Several things went into making this one of my favored positive-surprise results:
- Golden’s Light Molding Paste, which itself allowed several things
a. creation of a descriptive molding directing movement and form
b. an absorption surface that allowed my use of watered down acrylics which gave me my currently-favored look – watercolors
c. and least expected, but bound to be more important as I use this new base (over acrylic gesso’d canvas), the ability to cleanly cover a previous painted area
- Successfully using a figure line art I’m hoping to use in several art pieces
- Working on a medium size canvas with quick eye appeal yet small enough to easily cart and store
That’s not a bad chunk of choice things to come out of a new piece, lol!
And did I mention I really like the overall effect? 😊
Even my wife likes it! ♥️
So below, as I like to do when able/appropriate, I’ve a couple of screen shots showing samples of Fine Art America’s full resolution preview, keeping in mind the “full-full” preview is only visible on my painting’s page there, with a very strong approximation here on my site —
I chose the above preview because it shows textured modulation of color (left), line work, and modulation of the thicker/denser acrylic pigment I used on my figure’s outfit.
Below I show more of the textured color modulation in the field around the figure – a taste of what I do miss not using oils right now, but am finding via the light molding paste, I can get with both watercolor and acrylic (this piece)!
The watercolor link to in the prev paragraph, though listed as complete, with image uploaded to FAA, I’ve decided I want to keep working on, already having used the light molding paste to remove the figure I never was completely happy with. We’ll see how far the changes (I suspect not a lot) go with that piece, Barton Springs Greenbelt Indian Summer, a larger 25×40 watercolor also on canvas with light molding paste over gesso. Probably returning it closer to before I added the small figure, which never looked quite right, lol! 😊
That’s about it for now. As I prepare this post, my mom is reaching a final resting place, and our attention gravitates there. A wonderful person, whom my friends, from grade school on, always told me was an angel (and me going, “Huh?”) is leaving me with an imprint I will eternally be grateful for. Maybe lucky enough to leave a semblance of her behind, in my days, and in my art 💕
Stay well everyone – love and enjoy!
ps, update: my mom has passed and is at peace now; as noted in yesterday’s post’s update; still not sure what my schedule will be, but want to have a post about her when possible ♥️ This is the last post I had finished and scheduled before her passing.

- January 16, 2022 – My Most Viewed Image this Past Week @FineArtAmerica, Fantasy Landscape – New 16×20 #LyricalAbstract #AcrylicPaintingFantasy Landscape is currently residing at the Old Bakery & Emporium in downtown Austin across from the Texas State Capital. It’s a super playful acrylic I didn’t realize would be “so much” a landscape as it turned out, lol! All part of the “discovery” process inside each artist, often call the landscape inside, probably in more senses than one, as Joan Mitchell has alluded to.

One, the red version, already had its sides painted, but the newer blue version didn’t, so I got to work right away. Like I tell folks who like hearing ’bout how I put these together, painting the sides almost always takes as long or longer than the painting! Why?

She says it over and over, all different ways, and I understood it. First intellectually. Then emotionally. And today, physically.
