Small Floral Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 8x10" Pink Floral Oil Painting, Palette Knife

I wanted to create a soft, soothing floral still life. Painted on .75" deep canvas, with painted sides. Finished with a light spray of varnish to enhance and protect the colors.

Purchase here
I worked with both brush and palette knife, but 90% of it is the knife.

Hope you enjoy it!

Abstract Painting, Seascape Palette Knife Art, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 11x14" Oil on Canvas, SOLD

For me, the best time to visit the beach is sunrise or sunset.  It is such a spiritual experience.


In the morning, I am usually alone.  Just me, my camera, the birds, and possible a lone fisherman, trying his luck.

At sunset, you may not be alone, but in a group of spectators, standing in awe, as the sun sinks into the sea.

Both experiences will enrich your day.

Abstract Landscape, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Sunset Abstract Painting


Some days I just want to smush paint around.  I can almost understand Vincent eating it.  So creamy, so smooth, so beautiful!


When I feel that way, I always get out my palette knife and just enjoy.  Remember that feeling you had as a kid in kindergarten?

Right away my shoulders relax.

Enjoy the day!

 It's been quite some time since I dug out my palette knives.  I forgot how much fun it is.

ressionist Seascape Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Textured Art, Palette Knife Painting, SOLD

Well probably your 5 yr old kid could do this....right?  Maybe that is why I enjoy it so much.

 I may be a slow learner, because it took me many years to get to this point.  Mama never said I was the sharpest knife in the drawer.

All kidding aside, I really love the freedom of this piece.  Instead of leaving the studio feeling like I have been fighting for hours, I felt very relaxed, happy and ready to sail through the day.  I think I need to do this more often!

Thanks for reading my blog today.
