I’m thinking of sunshine and flowers, while our first blizzard hits. Yesterday our yard was a healthy green. Today it wears a blanket of snow, but it’s pretty too.
The first image is the under painting, and the second is the finished work. 8″x10″ acrylic on canvas board.
I approached this picture by loading the brush as much as I dare and with the least amount of strokes. Although I did go over the background again to get the textures.
I’m going to experiment with more like these.
Happy Mother’s Day!
I usually get spring potted flower’s for my Mom for Mother’s Day, but this time I thought I would paint some that don’t need to be watered, and will last beyond the season.
6×6″ stretched gallery edge canvas.
Our local Art Center http://brookingsartscouncil.org/home hosts an exhibit to raise funds by asking local artists to create up to 4 of 6×6″ works of art of any media. Patrons buy as many chances for a drawing as they like. At the time of the sale, they draw tickets, and each person comes up as their ticket is drawn, and has 30 seconds to pick a painting. The paintings are only signed on the back, so you have to pick by taste, instead of by name.
Here are two paintings I picked out at the last sale, painted by my friends. I can recognize their work, but I picked them because I liked the pictures.
Painting on left by John Rycharik, and on right by Steve Randall. Thanks guys, I’m proud to own art by your hand!
This palette knife painting represents a rose from memory. In the BEFORE version I was satisfied with the composition, but not the colors I don’t know why I use the dull brown. Anyway, I looked at it today by chance, and thought I want to fix this. The texture has a bit different effect covering over the top of existing texture but I’m glad I went for it! I may try this again from scratch sometime.
