My Dreams and I


My Dreams and I – 12 x 16 inch acrylic portrait painting on canvas board 

She was quite the experiment, this one! Using almost exclusively a palette knife for this one, was a challenge. Those first 15 minutes of trying to wield something other than a brush in my hand was quite something…and I almost went right back to the brushes I am comfortable with. But I am glad that I kept at it a while longer, because the challenge became something interesting. And I fell in love with the texture and color and shapes that I was laying down on the canvas board.

Will I do more palette knife paintings? YES! I just purchased two new palette knives to play with. So hopefully you will see a few more soon.

For now, “My Dreams and I” is now available for purchase in my online Etsy shop, ArtcyLucy. 


I have another painting I am offering through Daily Paintworks, using their Paypal feature. 


Muy Bonita – 9 x 12 inch acrylic painting on stretched canvas

This one went through quite a few stages before I was happy with her…but I love her sweet face, and that smile! I added metallic gold to the background, her necklace, and collar of her shirt…just for a little added bling.

“Muy Bonita” can be found at Daily Paintworks.
