我用各种厚度和混合物的丙烯酸涂料上漆。有时我直接从所谓的管中绘画"heavy-body"油漆，因为它的一致性。其他时候我将稀释剂混合在一起，加入水和釉料以产生半透明效果。通常，我会分层绘制，并通过半透明的顶层显示颜色。我也喜欢"drawing" with lines in acrylic paint, which I am able to do by attaching a cap to the end of the tube of paint. There is a small hole at the end of the cap which allows me to use the paint as a 画画 medium, much like decorating a cake.
My early training in art taught me how to recreate the world I saw around me on paper or canvas by 画画 and painting from life. I drew many portraits of my family and painted still-lifes, portraits, and scenes from nature. But my true love is color, form, shape and texture. As I continued with my studies in art education, I experimented more and more with abstraction.
罗伯特·格瓦斯梅 was my 画画 teacher, but he is most famous for his fabulous paintings. Two dimensional design helped me to see the power of color and patterns in visual art. One of the pieces I made in that class was hung in the annual student exhibit at Cooper Union at the end of the year.
