Fantasy Brush Works…


  Creating something unique and beautiful, is a way of life for so many. For me, creating what I call my Fantasy Designs, is to relax and let my brush do what it wants. In the early 1990s, I discovered a little know art book with the wild designs of the late Lucille Watkins. I never had the chance to meet her in person but her style really captured my imagination. It was free-form, flowing, colorful. It was Fantasy! It was Fun!


When creating my own, one-of-a-kind designs, I found the using FolkArt Enamels worked best for what I wanted to achieve –  the color builds up for a slight dimensional edge. Usually I would double or triple load my brush (2 to 3 colors at a time). It does not matter what size or shape of the brush, they all worked beautifully with multiple colors. As for the brushes I preferred, I loved the ones for acrylics from Royal Brushes. These paintings are on watercolor paper.


The cards shown here are part of a group I’m creating for a friend. 








Life is more when when you create something for those we know.

Have a great week!

God Bless each of you.
