Calypso Celebration Series #8 of 10 ~ Art Blog ~ TSAP

The Calypso series #8

This may be one of my favorites from the series, a mysterious looking lady with an elaborate headdress or surrounded by flowers. This is acrylic painted on 140 lb. watercolor paper with an acrylic medium as a varnish. It could be matted and framed under glass or framed without glass. On the previous post the photo shows a side view of how the paintings look attached with an acrylic medium or gel to a canvas panel with the edges painted.

If you enjoy painting in acrylic, you might enjoy joining this new Yahoo group.

Acrylic Painters, welcome to your Yahoo group! The Society of Acrylic
Painters is a dues-free, officerless, egalitarian group of artists working
in the acrylic medium. TSAP is designed to unite acrylic painters world-wide and to have them share their art related events, photos of their art, to meet and greet artists from other areas, to share techniques, to display their art in art shows, and to enter into some fun art contests.

Two members of our Canvas by Canvas group that have blogs are Pat Salazar, Pcasso’s Page and Elaine Schneider with Elaine’s Blog “I Don’t Do Mornings.”

Drop by. There is always a CELEBRATION at one of these links.

I sure will be disappointed when the last of this series is posted. They are all so interesting and I really enjoy it when you paint in this style. Great work, Miss Nancy!

Thanks for mentioning my blog. I haven't had much time to paint this past month. There's a little art on it right now and lots of travel stories, but when we return there will be more art ... promise!

Is there a reference to a Roman or Greek figure here? Because I see upon the head of this figure some leaves like a loral.
