Carolyn Kaler, of Magical Brush Paintings, resides in North Carolina & paints mostly in acrylic. She leans towards a lot of texture and trying to not be as detail oriented as she usually is. Earlier paintings were done in watercolor, most of them are in private collections or on slides. This mermaid, done in textured acrylic metalics, is one of my favorites that she has done (so far). I hope she inspires you!
