I have recently started painting with acrylics although I have never used them before.  I am drawn to their brilliant opaque shades and they defy traditional mixing techniques.  As a completely foreign medium I am learning how to paint all over again.  My current work is taking the anatomy and geology that I mastered to an entirely different subject, flowers.  Instead of the large landscapes I painted 17 years ago, I am exploring at the micro level but asking the same questions.  What is this life and world we take so for granted?
