  1. Julie, this is so lovely. Great complimentary colors and your fracturing technique makes it exciting. Believe it or not, I was in a department store the other day and saw a beautiful turquoise vase and I thought of YOU !

    1. Thanks and I am pleased you think so, but the fracturing is still a little inconsistent. It is trial and error every day, but has definitely become part of my painting process.

  4. I really like those colorful darks. They make the lights pop!
    I'm seriously considering trying one in your fracturing style. I don't have your unique squeegee tool, so it would be the palette knife for me.
    A late congrats on the big 400th, Julie!

    1. You should try it, Dean, if for no other reason than it is fun to explore new techniques. You can buy a shaper already ready for the job. I am too cheap and make my own!
