Secret Stream, palette knife painting

"Secret Stream"




About This Painting:
This one started as a path with pebbles and stones on the edges of it. Then it reminded me of one of many creeks I have crossed in Montana, so I added more rocks. I used a palette knife to get that sparkle effect of the water dancing down stream. Really fun to to create with a knife, because you never know what you will get in the end.


Enjoy!

Green Parrot, bird portrait

"Green Parrot"




Originally a study in analogous greens with a compliment of red.


I drew this guy freehand, then did an under painting in black and white. Corrected quite a few errors as I painted the under painting. Then I went in with green and red glazes. I use Liquitex semi-gloss medium and varnish to thin the paint, after the under painting is dry. The thin layers of glaze makes him glow! Adding the red tuft by his beak was the best part because it draws your attention close to his eye. I also enjoyed the ruffled feathers.


Thanks for looking!

Taste and See, animal portrait, equine art, horse, foal

"Taste and See"


This is one I did awhile ago, I have touched it up, and made a few corrections. I took pictures of the neighbor's foal in the early morning, then when I painted it, I exaggerated the lighting and the colors. I also used a loose approach and exaggerated the contrast.

This painting is now available in greeting cards and prints!

Abstract Oak Leaves, demo from O'keeffe

"Abstract Oak Leaves"


We looked at Georgia O'keeffe a week ago in my kid's summer art class. I had my students free-hand some interesting leaf shapes before we painted it in. Then we added some of our own colors too. Each student had a completely different painting by the time we got finished. I went back and finished mine out a few days later.

I also had them work on their own projects, zooming in on flowers and painting a similar style. We are having a great time!

Ready to frame.

Eternal Love, angels at sunset, knife painting

"Eternal Love"


This is a custom order, taken from "Endless Love." This one was created with painting knives, while "Endless Love" was done with brushes on a smaller board. The knife gives it a more abstract look, as the blending technique isn't as soft. I like the energy the two angels seem to have between them.


My angel book (above) shares spiritual insights from scripture, as well as my inspirations and some techniques. I am so excited to finally have it published!


Enjoy!

Size: 12 in X 16 in (30.5 cm X 40.6 cm)

Moving On, sunset, landscape, rim canal

"Moving On"


Started as a demo with distant hills and a large lake. I went back later and turned the hills into the dike around Lake Okeechobee. Completely made this up from memory. Then I added the rocky shore, palm tree, and birds. Finally I made the alligator swimming in the canal.
