Add Text to Acrylic Paintings

Wish, Acrylic, 3"x3", Diana Campbell Rice
 Ok, I admit it is an interesting process.  New techniques in art are much like any new learning process -- you do it until you have mastered it.  I have created four small paintings specifically so I could add text to them.  I have been in quite the abstract mood, so...the paintings reflect that, plus, I just like the controlled randomness of the design. 

Angel Muse Set, Acrylic, 3"x3", Diana Campbell Rice
 So far, I like this painting the best, Wish, top right, and it was the first one I did.  I particularly like the colors and how the text was incorporated.

The next design, found in the Angel Muse Set, was created as the final painting in the set.  Not sure if you can read the text...where angels dare to tread -- Perfect for bringing out the expression I wanted for this collection. Very pleased with the new addition -- finally, it all works.

It is so fun to stretch and try new techniques.  If you are interested in learning how to add print or any image to acrylic paintings, just follow the link and...experiment!
