Whoopie Pies and Illuxcon

Acrylic on Masonite

Illuxcon was a great experience.  It was my first time exhibiting at a convention and I received very positive feedback.  I sold a few original drawings which was a plus and I got to reconnect with some amazing fellow artists as well as meet a few new people.  A wonderful time to say the least.  I have some "scores" from some fellow artists but my studio is in disarray and I must post those finds at a later time.

The above piece has nothing to do with Illuxcon but I thought I'd post it anyway.  I have some new pieces to share but I want to take another few hours to tweak them so they're perfect.  Unfortunately, those few hours are really hard to come by.  Instead I am showing you a demo I did for one of my many classes.  This is a 15 minute study in acrylics.  You'll see by the upper left hand corner that there is a little crackling.  My study gladly became the guinea pig for a student's crackle medium experiment.
