The Nonnie Puzzle
Original painting by Helaine Trachtenberg, 2023
Do you have a grandparent who paints? We sure do! Our Nonnie began painting with oils when she was a teen. When the pandemic hit, she had to give up her oil painting practice in favor of a less toxic and compact way of painting in her apartment. So what did she do at 87-years-young? She discovered YouTube and the world of acrylic paint pouring. Today, she has a book full of recipes with various mixers to create paintings with pools of color and marble-like effects. Her tools include a lazy susan for spinning, straws to blow the paint around the canvas, balloons & combs for texture, a hairdryer, and a tiny blow torch.
