In 2011 I spent most of my time in Tulsa, Oklahoma caring for my youngest son going through stage 3 cancer treatments. Since I was unable to work in my studio, I researched painting techniques during the long recovery periods between chemo treatments. One interesting technique that I found was the alcohol-resist process with acrylic paint. Most of the information regarding alcohol resist was made on paper and used for cards and decorative posters. The alcohol created an unstable painting surface for works on canvas, so to make this work I used an acrylic clear medium to stabilize the resist painting. Over the past ten years the paintings I created with this process have weathered the test of time. I use this technique for backgrounds, textural areas, and complete works.
