The Joy of Painting

Spreading paint across a canvas is a profound sensual experience. Flowing colour excites the imagination. Tempests of the mind can be expressed and transformed. Beauty acts as a salve and peace and pleasure can be found.

Finishing Touches to Paintings

Painting the side edges of the canvas gives a neat finishing touch to a painting. Here is a sneak view of my paintings drying in my studio, after I painted white along the sides of each canvas. Some of these paintings will be exhibited in “Enigma” this September in Greystones, Co. Wicklow.

Saving left over paint

Handy Art Tip: To save acrylic paint that is left over after a days painting Simply, place your left over paint on a small sheet of clingfilm and wrap the paint up like a sweet; tie a knot at each end. This paint will remain usable for up to a week.
