Hi rapolina

It is for a mini exhib I am doing here locally. The exhib is titled 'Explorations of the Soul'

I was looking at my paintings trying to figure out a title with some friends. One mentioned the eye travelling around the painting going into different openings and then coming out again. The other said the word 'portal' as in gateway or entrance.

I thought okay I can go with that one.

Another great piece. You always achieve such powerful and rich reds. Whenever I see an artist who is able to achieve that I'm always curious on their methods. Do you mind sharing your secret?

:D Jolie I guess the secret is all in the mixing.

I do admit that I enjoy the red that results from mixing a little cadmium red or cadmium yellow with alizirin crimson.

Aside from that I guess the blues and greens help. mjk :)
