Coastal Home Decor, Beach House Wall Decor, Abstract Seascape, Original Oil Painting, Palette Knife Painting 10x10x1.5"

I am still in a seascape frame of mind.

Purchase here
295.00 +shipping
This is worked with a palette knife.  I enjoy lots of texture, so I left it on this piece.  Maybe it is more of a skyscape?   Maybe it is more abstract or impressionistic?  Whatever it is, it reflects my mood at the time, which I think, is the point of painting.

Thanks for viewing my blog today.

Palette Knife Art, Abstract Oil Painting, Abstract Landscape

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.

Palette Knife Art, Textured Painting, Seascape Oil, Abstract Seascape, SOLD

I wanted to do a seascape, or actually a beach painting, somewhere between an abstract and impressionism.

SOLD

I wanted to record just my memories and impressions of trips to the beach.  I painted with a knife and tried to work quickly.

I tried not to think too much about the colors I was using or where I was putting them, but tried to keep it really instinctive.





I wanted plenty of texture in this piece.



It was a fun exercise!

Although this painting has sold, it is available as a giclee print on canvas or distressed wood planks.  Contact me for sizes and pricing.

Thanks for viewing my blog today.

Abstract Art Print, Acrylic Pouring, Giclee Print on Canvas

We have left the summer heat behind and are enjoying the cooler mountain air.  Along with the cooler air, I have brought a desire to experiment.



Poured painting is another skill to be practiced and perfected.  On the surface, it seems simple enough, but, I find I ditch more than I save.
Technique is critical and varied, and in the end, you give up control and hope for the best.  I warn you....it is addictive!
Can you believe it will be August tomorrow?

Pear Still Life, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Kitchen Wall Decor, 6x8" Original Artwork

I have been very caught up in landscapes, for quite some time now.  The beautiful blue ridge mountains are so inspiring, and in the winter, as I walk the beach, I see possible paintings everywhere.

So, it is with a little relief, that I painted this small still life.

Purchase Here
I hope you enjoy this small trio of pears.
