Reader's Digest


16 x 12
Acrylic on thick Canvas

​This is the first "all acrylic" painting I do in 20 years! I had abandoned it for oil but I have lately been incorporating it in my oil paintings. Starting with acrylic and finishing in oil. There's a lot of qualities that acrylic has, that Oil doesn't, but those qualities are also it's bad side sometimes!
So here is a stack of old Reader's digest books. I just brought them back from my parent's house. They were happy to get them out of their library collecting dust. I was so happy to add them to mine! Aren't they a beauty! They don't make books like that anymore.
