Maine fine artist of archival acrylic and watercolor paintings

 

     Welcome!

     

Here, my authentic hand painted acrylic and watercolor scenes are created to give you peace and refreshment. 

My paintings are on cotton archival paper from France, on hand-crafted cradled wood panels, or archival hardboard. Every panel is primed by me which is a 9 hour  process. Then, I use strong professional pigment paints that are high rated for permanent light fastness to ensure decades, perhaps, centuries of rich color.

 

This icy swamp is 11 x 14 acrylic on panel. Winter is elegant.

Days, or weeks later, after the painting is complete, the fine art panels are brought back to the custom cabinet shop to be professionally sealed. The process of sealing acrylic paintings reduces the risk of scratches, protects microscopic pores from collecting dust, and protects the wood from changes in humidity. All of my archival art pieces are designed to be admirable heirlooms for generations.

 

Since it is challenging to blend with acrylics, I used special techniques to create depth in this acrylic monochromatic painting
