    PEOPLE 3. STILL LIFES 4. ANIMALS 5. ABSTRACTS CONTRIBUTORS ABOUT THE EDITOR Introduction I first became aware of acrylic paints back in college, where my professor advised us to select one painting medium and use it for the duration of our studies. While this didn’t provide the most balanced of experiences when it came to exploring the range of painting mediums available, it did provide the benefit of gaining a deep understanding of my medium of choice. That medium was acrylics. And what a choice it was—little did I know how diverse and exciting this paint could be!

    Also, acrylic paints are relatively inexpensive. They fit my style of technique in that they dry quickly and allow me to make many iterations quite easily.
