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!

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.

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!

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.

Enjoy!

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.

Ends of the Earth, abstract sunset landscape

"Ends of the Earth"


Actually was inspired by my palette, the colors are arranged all around the edges with white in the middle, so it looks almost like a rainbow at times. I began with yellow, orange, and red first, then added some white. Then I worked around to greens and blues, and finally added the violet. Then I found myself adding water, and foliage, of sorts. The purple hues remind me of a shore line. This painting has wonderful texture from the wet in wet applications with a palette knife.

Enjoy!

Monet's Cliffs, impressionism seascape demo

"Monet's Cliffs"

My kid's class choose this for our focus on art history, we didn't have time to add the women or more sailboats....but it was still very fun to challenge my students with a new way to paint. Some of them did not care for it at all and went back and smoothed out all the brush stokes! Others loved it and added more thick paint and broken strokes. I only gave them primary colors (plus white and black), so they had to add a little blue to the yellow to get shades of green, and I didn't let them mix the colors first, they had to mix it on the painting by overlapping the brush strokes! After a while some of my kids started mixing it first anyway. I laughed and told them that was fine, at least they tried it.....

Lake Place, mountain landscape

"Lake Place"


Started as a demonstration from one of my student's photos. The photo was dark, so I brightened the whole thing up while we painted it. After I got home I decided it had great potential, so I changed some of it and added a shore line, more details, and darker reflections. Love the depth and distance, as well as the peaceful feeling it has.


Enjoy!

Old Timer, wildlife, grizzly bear

"Old Timer"



I saw a similar bear in Montana, but didn't get pictures of him. So when I was at a zoo shortly after that, I took lots of pictures of this bear in in a pool. I used my Montana pictures for the background. I added extra water, and lots of furry texture (which I love).


Enjoy!

Size: 10 in X 8 in (25.4 cm X 20.3 cm)


Greeting cards and prints are now available of this painting!



Sorry but the ORIGINAL IS NOT AVAILABLE. However, I would love to paint something similar for you.
