Abstract Landscape Palette Knife Art, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 8x8x3" Original

I found some square 3 inch deep canvases in my studio, and decided to play around with one.


SOLD


I tried several approaches, but nothing was working for me.  So, I just started playing with paint and my palette knife.  I was envisioning  a sunset over the landscape, choosing colors that "felt" right for me.



You can see how deep the canvas is in this pic.  I actually love these big clunky canvases on shelves rather than walls, and I like the feel of the rough clunky paint.

All in all, it was a fun painting day.

Abstract Seascape Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Textured Art, SOLD

This small seascape is a study for a much larger piece.  The only question in my mind is "How large?"

SOLD
I am very happy with the understated color which makes the brighter hues really pop.  I am not sure if it would be call an abstract or impressionistic.......what do you think?

What I do know, I really enjoyed painting it and want to try it again and go BIG!

Thanks for reading my blog today.

Daffodil Painting, Small Flower Painting, Daily Painting, 6x8" Oil

Another small flower painting.  I have really been inspired with flowers this spring.  I am experimenting with a few different techniques, trying to find and perfect m"my style".  My art seems to be evolving so quickly right now, and, I think it is from my studies with Elio Comacho.

 I struggled for several hours over this little 6x8" painting, but, in the end I was pleased with the results.  I wanted to stay very loose and added lots of medium to my paint.

Thank you for viewing my art today.
