This painting started as an acrylic flow and when my daughter saw the flow of the paint she said it looked like a dress. That's how this took shape. Many times my paintings start with no particular outcome in mind and this was one was no different. Once the image was on my computer I added the words "courage to dream" to what will be offered as the print. You can find the orignal painting here and the print here.
Recently completed, 36" x 48" acrylic on stretched canvas includes hand cut letters with inspiring sentiment.

"It’s the unpredictability of even the most mundane things that I try to recreate in my art." I absolutely love the colorful, whimsical feel of Michelle's pieces. Her blog is full of uplifting inspiration as well.
"David Kracov, whose paintbrush is guided by the ever-changing muse of pop culture, whose clay is shaped by the witty puns of the English language, and whose designs are brought to life by his literary prowess, has left his unmistakable fingerprint on the world of modern art." I am partial to butterflies so I just love those pieces!
