Barbara Lipkin’s Paintings www.LipkinGallery.com
Just came back to the midwest from 3 months in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was so wonderful to be in the sunlight and warmth every day, vs the freezing cold and snow awaiting me back home in Naperville, IL. I worked nearly every day in my little studio space, enjoying the chance to be away from my usual responsibilities, and simply paint.
I created a series of small still-life’s, concentrating on shapes, colors, and textures. I used acrylics for the first time, instead of oils. I like the way they dry so quickly, and clean up so easily. I finished each painting with a nice coat of glossy varnish, which brings out and enriches colors beautifully.
