This book is phenomenal, amazing, fascinating and very inspiring! Wow! I saw it in a bookstore, and then spent the next half hour sitting on the floor in a thrill reading this book! Wow! I have bought a copy and have recommended this to several artist friends, and have asked our city's library to purchase a copy! The array of alternative surfaces is quite diverse, and the explanation of the techniques is excellent. I have read many books on acrylic painting, and this is one of the very best. I also like the series by Nancy Reyner, and her latest book 'Acrylic Illuminations' is great. Happy painting!
