Hi, I painted this last week and I set up some silk daisies to look at. This is acrylic on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas. I applied lots of layers and used a palette knife on the flowers. Something I like about this is the whole painting has a soft look but yet the white flowers stand out. I have included a close up view also.

Hello there, I just finished a 3 day workshop with the amazing artist Chuck Marshall. It was a plein air workshop, we worked in and out of the rain. We did a lot of starts, painting 3 or 4 paintings each day. I came home after and made notes for myself, things to keep reminding myself, "block in the large shapes", "lay on clean colors on top with a gentle touch" and most importantly for me think "design, design, design". I painted this one recently, acrylics on a 8 x 10, 1 1/2" deep canvas. I toned the canvas red and allowed a lot of that red to peek through. This was painted mostly with a palette knife and at the end I allowed thinned down red paint to drip from my poppies. So happy to see you, you do know I can see you don't you? hmm, lol

Hello, As some of you know I have been working with acrylics a lot lately. I have been trying different things and I really like this one. I like the abstract background with the sunflowers painted on top. This is painted on a 12" x 12" stretched canvas. I appreciate your feedback. This painting journey is challenging and so much fun. Have a wonderful day ~ Thank you for visiting

Hi Folks! I painted this last week during Paint the Town in Loveland, there were Tiger lilies growing along the bike trail and I just love them. This is acrylic on a 6 X 6 canvas that is 1 1/2" deep. You can set it on a shelf or hang it on the wall. I did something a bit different with this one, after I finished I used medium and applied a vine pattern to the front. The medium dries pretty much clear and is raised, an interesting touch I think. Hope you can see the pattern well enough. You can purchase this with a buy now option on Paypal, pretty sure you don't even have to sign up to buy. This is $50 with free shipping anywhere within the continental US. Please be advised the colors in the actual painting may vary from the image you see on screen due to my digital camera results and your monitor.
