Varnishing Fire Sky, one of my favorite paintings from 2018. The high-gloss varnish creates movement and makes the colors appear so much more vivid than I could have imagined, it looks amazing!!!
Laying down the drop cloth after finally moving to our new artist collective studio at Kaiserin-Augusta-Allee 47. Won't be long now!
Watch me apply the final varnish to my latest 100cmx100cm acrylic painting. After applying 2 coats of transparent acrylic medium (isolation coat,) I apply 2 coats of varnish. The painting is now waterproof, and can be cleaned and restored without damage to the paint beneath. The isolation coat creates a protective barrier between the acrylic paint and the varnish.
I displayed more recent paintings on the walls of my little studio. It's time to log and archive last years paintings before the big move to my new studio.
Framing a small painting this Summer. I get so much satisfaction from the creative process: Prepping, painting, varnishing and finally framing an original work of art. Everything is done by hand and with much love.
Making small black frames for a series of re-imagined landscape paintings I painted during the Summer of 2018. This is fun! *Always wear a professional mask.
