Pop In! Hico Popcorn Shop

Pop In!
Hico Popcorn Shop
4" x 5"

This is one of Hico's fun places to shop! I swear I think they have a hundred different types of popcorn . . .ok maybe only 20-30. Steve and Donna are always coming up with new types of popcorn - this weekend they had "Holiday Spice" which is kind of cinnamony. Yumm!

This is another painting done with Chroma's Interactive Acrylics. These are wonderful paints. You can use them like traditional acrylics, but more importantly to me is that you can use them like oils. They will dry quickly or you can stretch the drying time out. You can even 'rewet' them with a special unlocking medium.

4" x 6" Cityscape - Hico - Koffee Kup No. 1

Koffee Kup No. 1

4" x 6"
Acrylic on Panel

A Hico landmark for many, many years and a regular in "Texas Monthly" highlights, the Koffee Kup is famous for its wonderful homemade food, but mostly for the PIES. Located at the intersection of 281 and Hwy 6, no series of Hico establishments would be complete without the Koffee Kup restaurant.

This painting was created using Chroma's Interactive Acrylic Paints. Unlike traditional acrylics, all 75 of these “interactive” colors do not suddenly form a skin. Interactive changes the painting process, giving you plenty of time to blend and rework and giving you more creative freedom. The patent-pending formulation allows even touch-dry paint to be reworked or ragged-off to blend or reveal layers. Archival quality and lightfast, the intense colors dry to a satin-like finish without a plastic look or feel and minimal color shift. I'm loving them!
