So I have been experimenting with a series of different things and I have come to the following revelations:

1.  I am the artist and what I say goes!  Thats it! my mediums are my choice and if I want to step out of the box I will do so.  The world will just have to keep up.

2.  I fell in love with using acrylics on watercolour paper and I believe I will continue to put my art of this.  It gives a matte and very realistic finish which is phenomenal.

3.   As my skills improve I am realizing that I am being drawn into a particular type of painting.  Of course I thought that would not be possible because I am too much of a dynamic person to settle for one type of portrayal.  But it happened......I am into realism and I absolutely love painting people.  AAnnddd....I love painting nudity.  Who the hell would have thought that I can watch naked people.  I am learning to appreciate so many things about the human body and art it is amazing.

4.   My experiments with glazing was a success which can be seen in my last three paintings.  So I am sure I am going to try and incorporate this into more of my work.  I have already selected some nature scenes from photos I took in Mayaro and at the Caura River.  This will be taking it to a different level, but the only way I will know if I can is to try and be proud of whatever is created.

5.   My brushes are dying.  I did not know that bristles get warn and become short.  So this was a shocker for me but I am up to any challenge at this point.

6.   Finally, I am soooooo happy with my progress.  I still have some bastards around me who are trying to keep me down.   I have a really good friend who encourages me to continue.  If I draw a line he sees potential in it......and I like that.

7.   The experiments will continue, for sure..............The Dr. is out!
