Original paintings

are typically created on a collaged base affixed to a wood substrate. The medium I use to paint with is usually a combination of acrylic paint and/or oil paint, watercolor paint sticks, stamp ink, and glue. I often collage atop the finished piece, and sometimes add an image painted in water-based oils to the surface for additional luminosity. Some images are available as unlimited edition prints and cards. If you cannot find what you are looking for in the Shop, please email me for additional information at ValsArt@me.com.
