"Top It Off!"

12"x12" acrylic on canvas

Here it is! Number 75! Yes, this coffee does need a little topping off, it's gotten so cold I think I see ice. Just kidding...

This painting is a 12" by 12" and painted using acrylic paint and a brush and my fingers. Uh oh, I used and oil paint pen, this needs to be considered a mixed media piece. Hmm.... to change the description or not change the description.  Speaking of descriptions, yesterday's painting I labeled aquamedia. This may be a term that will be added to the dictionary someday. I called it aquamedia because I used acrylic paint and water and I used dried pieces of acrylic that I peeled off of my plastic palette. I figure it's not just acrylic paint from a tube but has materials that water had been used in the process as opposed to oil, or stones or glitter or plates or... you know what I mean... Sometimes, I'll use water soluble pencils and pastels so I'll call that aquamedia too. Maybe I'm using it too loosely, but it did bring up a good question!

I think I will dedicate this painting to my Mother, because she really likes it when the waitress comes around and "tops off" her coffee. Here's to you Mom!

Aquademia ou pas, j'aime les couleurs et ses nuances dans cette tasse de café... elles sont aussi chaudes que votre café est froid!!!...
