Route 66: Nostalgic Acrylic Paintings

Here are some paintings I worked on during the summer of 2010. The challenges I gave myself were two simple ones: work in a series, and choose a theme with broad appeal.

Passing Through, 20X20, acrylic paint/mixed media, 2010

As usual, I’ve been adding a lot of layers of paint and plenty of texture. The partial shape of the “state route” shield and the simulated road center lines are covered by gold leaf. Here are two more below:

Midpoint Cafe, 20X20, acrylic paint/mixed media, 2010

I used pretty much all of my favorite materials for these paintings. Acrylic paint, of course is used liberally, along with Caran D’ache, imitation gold leaf, vermiculite, stabilo pencil, tissue paper and printer ink.
