One of the benefits of working with acrylics is the shorter drying time compared to oils. The ease of cleaning up with soap and water is extremely advantageous. Acrylics have a wonderful versatility. They morph and adapt to any style and intention of the artist with the addition of a variety of mediums.

When going to grad school for my master’s in painting at CSU (Colorado State University), I commuted to Ft. Collins and back to Arvada pretty much five days a week.
