After reading Robert Genn’s letter about “basket lists”, I decided to browse through some photos of different types of subjects. I found several references of cattails, and decided to give them a try in acrylics. With all of the layering,glazing, and negative painting I realized how much fun they are. The last acrylics I did were in 2001. This one is a 36X36 acrylic on canvas and will be available at the exhibition.
