Standing Strong Canvas or… Blog Hop with Dina Wakley

Dina Blog Hop Graphic

 

I am very proud of and happy for my friend Dina Wakley who just launched her own signature line of acrylic paints with Ranger. So when she asked me if I would participate in a blog hop and show some work using her paints, I said of course yes.

I had planned on doing a canvas on the Flatiron Building in NYC – as many others I find it highly intriguing – the more as I learned through the PBS show “Treasures of New York” about it’s history.

The name “Standing Strong” is the name my artist friend Tanya Watts Wedhorn gave it after I posted a sneak on my Facebook page and asked people to help me with a name. She is fighting returning cancer and what she said really touched and resonated with me„I remember seeing this building when visiting New York and it just seemed like a building that has really had to stand it’s grounds in a quick growing and changing city. It reminds me of strength and not changing for anything or anyone. So my title would be Standing Strong! Xxx“ Stand Strong Tanya – Lot’s of Love!!

I had fun painting with Dina’s paints, and using her brushes and the Gesso and Gel Medium.  Love the colors she included in her line- I used almost all colors she sent me.
