Recent PaintingsThe Art of Joel Fletcher

After a long absence from the realm of painting, I am now creating new artworks with various concepts, designs, and color schemes. All of them were painted with the slow drying OPEN acrylics by the Golden company. I like the blending characteristics and particularly the edge control possible with this revolutionary paint.
