White Geraniums

A little palette knife painting in oil on a gesso board. This 5x7 inch painting was therapy after a cold day complete with snow flurries.

I was invited to participate in the Edinboro Art and Music Festival. I'll be under the tent at the Goodell Gardens on May 16 and 17. If you are in the area stop by and say hello. Special Guests will include Margaret and Will Hennessey from Apex, NC.

I Must Be A Mermaid....

I have recently done a series of theme paintings, this is the first. Painted in oil on a 16x20 inch flat canvas panel. I miss my Lake, in the winter it looks like a frozen tundra, beautiful and silent. No pounding or gentle surf, no seagulls. Just a bitter cold wind blowing in from Canada, waves frozen and ice dunes as far as you can see.

Abstract Impressionist? All pallet knife, it felt loose and fresh to me, no hovering over questionable brush strokes. A good time.
