Hi Shirley, Thank you so much for your recent comment re: light and movement. I go for what seems like ages, in my own little cave, and it's really uplifting to receive your warm and appreciative thoughts on my work. I so love the light and atmosphere in your works, as well, especially the one of the lake scene, above. :) Juliana

Hi Shirley, Thanks for your interest! I'd like to be your friend! I achieve luminosity and depth by utilizing the old master technique of glazing. I paint slowly . . . and have many canvasses going at once so, while some are drying, others are wet. I can't recall how many layers of glaze that particular painting has, but probably at least 20. I have quite a few larger works that have 80 - 100 layers of glaze. Glazing is challenging for me because it demands acceptance of a loss of control and the ability to carry on with the new vision, as each layer influences (subtly or profoundly) what came before and what will come later . . . I prepare myself, mentally, to relax and be ready to "give up" what may have been my initial vision many times during the painting process. I think the forced awareness of confronting change at every moment is one reason why I paint. I find the whole thing fascinating and I know I'm engaged when I forget about time and eating! I switched from oils to water-based oils and mediums about 6 years ago, but I also do a lot of mixed media. How about you? You, too, achieve a wonderful light in your work.
