Hello to everyone who reads this---I am sending you a bouquet of roses in a painting to wish you a Happy Valentines Day. It is a day that is for romance and love. I have this romance with my art and I love to paint. This painting was done with a heavy acrylic gel medium, and put on about a one fouth inch , with a palette knife. I then carved out the roses and when dry-I painted them. It is a fun process. I am always interested in new ways to express my feelings in my art-- If you have any new thing you would like to share with me--I would appreciate it. So have a happy day the 14th.

Nice, and isn't it fun using new things. I just tried using gel mediums with acrylics myself in my newest painting. I ordered a sampler kit with my last Dick Blick order. I wanted to incorporate more than one into my trial painting, so I painted a canyon landscape using heavy gel in my cliffs and coarse pumice gel in painting my riverside sand and gravel.
