Numeracy Series of Mixed Media Acrylic Paintings

I have been having a ball using some new to me techniques!  I was very familiar with making things grungy in Photoshop and I used it but I did not use it in my own art.  I just thought it was over used and I didn't know how my voice would come out, you know?

Adding other elements besides paint has allowed me to use my noggin!  I can use my Photoshop skills and painting skills and skills of finding things and different FONTS OMG FONTS.  I like FONTS A LOT!

Fonts are super important to me.  It expresses me in text.  Boring text can be flavored with awesome fonts!  Busting out of utilitarian reading fonts to scream in a title "Aren't I gorgeous! Just look at the sweep of my A!"

Back to reality.  Yeah I know, most of ya'll could care less LOL!.

Anyhoo.  I decided to name this series Numeracy since using the same size canvas, colors and numbers is what they all have in common.  Past that they get kind of flavorful.  I find myself wanting to bust out sideways but I am trying to just write down my ideas and stay with a series... LOL!  Yeah right.  I am just glad I am painting again!
