Ellen Keagy Henke More About Me Adding Acrylics to my Watercolors has given me a new perspective that I just love. They help me achieve a darker value which is so difficult for me to achieve with just watercolors alone. I've worked in Clay, Jewelry making and Pen and Inks and of course Drawing, the backbone of Art I feel.  I've taken Design, Color Theory, Photoshop, Computer Graphics, Drawing, Sculpting and a few others as well.Drawing is an anxiety reducing activity for me as well as a need.   I have had many great teachers starting with Patricia Abraham, Gary Pruner, Rex Brandt, Dwight Eberly, James Estys, Jan Miskulin and others; but some of my best are other artists and life itself!  I've painted for thirty some years now and it's a need I have just like breathing; My daughter and daughter-in-law both just gave me two more beautiful grandsons, so I am now the Grandma to three Grandsons! so my thoughts and ideas run to new life, growth, spirituality, all things ethereal or dreamlike and I am more likely to paint feelings or emotions than actual photorealism works.  Some quotes that I agree with...  Painting is a journey, it is the way I mark my path through life. anon  It's the process or doing of 'Art' or the `journey` not the destination  and Creativity and healing are very much connected as they both process energy through the hands.  I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way things I had no words for." ~ Georgia O'Keeffe, (with learning disabilities words often escape me and with the words above she conveys my thoughts)  I love critiques so feel free. If there is something I should change, please let me know.  And if anyone wishes my critique, just ask.
