18 x 24 Canvas as Emotional Dumping Ground

Hi all ...

This is my latest canvas. I needed to express some heavy emotions in my art. What better way to do it than with creating an abstract piece.

Here it is. I call it Emotional Inferno.

Materials used: gesso, acrylic paints, acrylic paint markers (love them!), gold leaf bits pressed all around the sides (the inferno), and Plaid acrylic sealer spray (only use outside since breathing it in is toxic!)

I'd like to know what you think, but people seem to have problems leaving me comments. If you want to comment on any of my blogs, my email address is


I write for a wonderful magazine called i.d.e.a.l. Magazine. It is a quarterly magazine about and for promoting disabled people to be seen as successful, productive members of society. Until you read the magazine, you won't believe all of the wonderful people who have exceeded all expectations despite having suffered serious disabilities, amputations, and serious diseases that challenge them every day ... but they press on to do whatever it takes and become all that they can be, all the while encouraging other people with their words of wisdom that come from their experiences.

Please check out the website, to see what the magazine is about and to subscribe. You can keep it for yourself, share it, or give it as a gift to someone who might need encouragement! You won't be sorry. Owner/Publisher Zarifa Roberson travels the country to create awareness and she deserves an expanding readership! Thanks in advance.

I'll see you next time when I'll be showing you a crazy piece of assemblage art that I'm almost finished with!

Peace and love ... Deb
