This painting is based on an arresting image I came upon one day that I believe is Esther Williams swimming with her children. I could not verify the actual identity of the the people in the image but I couldn't stop staring at the strength of the woman swimming confidently ever deeper into the water as her children sat joyously on her back. One can only hope to be such a confident parent, but I thought it was a great reminder that we all have personal gifts that when allowed to flourish can be amazing gifts to share with our children.

About Original Artwork

Paint Media

Denise paints with archival quality acrylic paints including Golden Acrylic Paints and mediums as well as Nova Paints. There can be mixed media here and there such as charcoal, colored pencil and waxed crayon.

Substrate

Denise paints on cradled hardboard and gessoed canvas. Pieces that are 24x36 inches or smaller, are painted on cradled hardboard 1 inch to 1 1/2 inches deep with paint finished edges matching the overall color scheme of the painting.

Larger pieces on canvas are painted while tacked to a large hardboard frame. This way I can still sand away as much as I want with a hard surface backing the painting.

The painting is then removed and reframed on stretcher bars for a more lightweight finished artwork which is easier to ship and easier to hang.

Finish

All artwork have been finished with a clear gloss or semi gloss water-based acrylic polymer varnish with Ultra Violet Light Stabilizers [UVLS] that protects interior acrylic paintings from dust and ultraviolet light.

In the event that you hang your painting in the dining room and it get splattered with spaghetti sauce (believe me this can happen), the painting can be wiped clean to bring it back to it's intended design.
