Charles Sovek say in an interview that he loved to paint in Acrylics (in addition to oil) because he liked the idea of being aligned with "materials of his own time". Acrylics were first made available (mostly) in the early 1960's and, of course, they handle very differently from oils. I think I agree with Sovek....that it is great to paint with both oils and acrylics. (Well, Sovek could paint in everything, including watercolor).
This painting is now on display in the Keizer Civic Center for one year and I also have another painting in the Keizer Chamber of Commerce.
