These creations emerged from a combination of repeated wetting with coloured washes and then applying paint while still damp from a recent wash, or with a dry brush onto the paper after drying completely. I have had the most fun with these, often because of the surprises I might discover – of colours merging or popping once the piece has dried completely, or of the curious shadows or textures that might form overnight.
I like the look of these in black frames with white matte and black inner edging, as seen below. Midsummer Fields 1 and 2 are in different frames, as shown, as are the two Central Park paintings (custom-made black frames and royal blue mattes). Irish Wedding and Ceilidh larger but in the same white matte-black trim frames as most of the others.

Listing of Wash Acrylics on Paper that have sold:
Both of the Central Park pieces have recently gone to a good friend. I hope they bring him joy and inspire him to remember his time in New York. Eramosa River was in an exhibit alone and sold, but its companion, Mountain Spring has also sold just recently.
