A Splash of Red Warms the Heart

I love painting red now that I have learned how my scanner can control the color for internet images. This is a 5 X 7 inch acrylic that I have dotted with raindrops. I hope it gives the painting a fresh "after the rain" mood.

It is also up on Fine Art America for prints: My Gallery

I love acrylics and in some of these highly detailed paintings I'll use it much like watercolor...I put it on thin and build it up in layers. Some of you artists might want to try that.
