I like Acrylics  because of its water solubility and quick drying time.  Quick drying time can be useful. Acrylic paint can be thinned for washes or have a heavy body for texture and an impasto effect.  Because I like to experiment with paint and try new ideas, this gallery reflects the many styles and techniques that I have ventured into. There's something about a new canvas and fresh paint that gets my creativity going.   Sometimes a style will depend on the subject matter and how I want to portray it.  But mostly I do not steer away from detail in my Artwork.  

As part of my Artistic development with creativity, I experimented with various styles.  Early on I felt I had a skill and talent for detail but I wanted to be more creative.  One of the styles that I ventured into was one where I wanted to depict the atmosphere as well as sunlight with a flat brush.  I realized that we can see the blue sky above us but that it involves the atmosphere that surrounds us, although we cannot see it.  This I feel is a spacial concept where the atmosphere is all around  us and also inanimate objects.  I painted several landscapes and one still life with this in mind.  The "Tree in Sunset," and "Night Fall," were part of this concept that depicted the dispersion of sunlight. Depicting the sunlight is where I began with this technique. In the painting "Snow Clearing"  I continued this concept by using strokes to depict atmosphere and sunlight dispersing through the trees.  The final phase, which was later in this developing style  was named "Amber Skies" and "Vase Still life."  I feel that this was a style that could be developed further and could involve other subjects relating to spacial topics such as distance and perspective however, I did not pursue it much further and other aspects of painting  lead me into other areas in Art. 
     As I have mentioned I like using a wide flat paint brush.  This has become my favorite brush because of the clean sharp-edge stroke that I like.  I used these flat brushes in the painting called "Cheetah at rest" where this was used for the entire painting including the Cheetah's spots.  This painting is in my Animals around the Globe gallery and not in this gallery.
I continued working on shapes with large square brushes. This involved squaring off shapes such as petals on flowers. I used the brush so that i could paint circles and other shapes with one long stroke.  I do not have all my paintings where I have created shapes with this technique.  There are three in this gallery "Diamonds in the Sky," "Flower Garden," and "Yellow Daisy."   While I moved into other areas creating paintings I continued on with using large flat brushes in  Abstracts such as "Tropical Paradise," and Designs as well as many other paintings. Also through the years I have alternated with using Acrylics and Pastel.
