Hey everybody!!! Sorry I've been gone so long. (Again) ((I need a new computer!!!))

This is acrylic on canvas paper. about 9" by 9" or so...
I've missed You! :crying:

All comments welcome & appreciated as always. :)

Clearly a Xerielle :D

I love your use of colours, they're so smooth and creamy.. I think I would like to see the blurred parts (primarily the band in the upper third area) to be more clear and defined like the wave that starts from the middle left and ends at the bottom right corner.. it maintains the smoothness, but keeps the texture and wide dynamic range of colour definition.

What is canvas paper? Just a thin canvas? Is it still stretched across a frame, or can you use it like regular paper? Inquiring minds would like to know!

Nice sweeping movements and wonderful palette.

Really great! It looks thick and textural. Is it or is it just the illusion of thickness and texture?

Thanks for sharing this!

I just came across your work Cerulean Stain, I especially appreciate good blending in abstract work, and this is a very fine example. Has an almost photographic quality of running water. Congratulations.

It reminds me of the water blending with my acrylics as they flow down the drain when I rinse my brushes. (I often get fixated on this). I love this painting, very good work.
