I'm donating this original painting titled This Drink's on Me for Paper Kite Studio's Free Art Anniversary Show on Friday, August 21 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Always looking for ways to recycle old goods, I used a discarded kitchen cabinet door for the surface of this acrylic painting.

I design the majority of my work using traditional painting methods, but last week I had the opportunity to play around with Photoshop CS4. I designed several 12"x12" squares using polka dots. I love how the lime green background subtly changes to turquoise in this design sample.
