They are all done in acrylics using craft type brushes. They all measure 9x12 and are on canvas textured paper I get from Michaels. I dont use an airbrush or any computer generated images.
Thank you for commenting on my pictures.
Thanks for this beautifully put together site...I appreciate your thoughtful welcome and comment about my web site and work. It's a pleasure to network here and share learning with so many talented people. I look forward to participating in the growth and development of a cosmic and space art that contributes to the important new paradigm and age we are in the midst of. Thanks, again for your leadership.
