"Chief Mountain, Glacier NP" is an 8"x10" acrylic painting in progress. This is my first painting using Golden OPEN acrylic paints and I'm really enjoying them. OPEN acrylics stay wet longer giving a longer "open" working time. This allows for better blending much like oil paints, but they don't take quite so long for the finished painting to cure. Normal acrylics dry almost too fast in this arid Montana climate. With the OPEN acrylics I can really slow down and enjoy the process.
This was my most recent painting project. It took a few weeks and required a little help from my parents and my son, who can be seen in one of the photos. I painted the exterior of my house - two coats of latex. My husband and I have added on to our house, including my future studio. The interior photos are the unfinished studio.
