just visited your web site and definetly plan to get a copy of your book. I write also, or at least try to. Thank you for all of your comments on what I call art. Most are of mixed media. Oil pastels, acrylics, gesso, shellac, paper or what ever else I have laying aroung to create texture and boldness of color. Lately everything I've done has been on wood. More so because its far less exspensive than canvas and with the different elements I sometimes incorporate, it takes better.
