Selfie of Palette Knife Workshop

Bethel Park
Saturday, May 21, 2016
12 People and lots of fun!
Join me in  my next scheduled workshop on June 11 in New Kensington  PA.

The day flies by- this one 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.  
I love to lead the workshops.  I love that everyone develops their own style- their own way of pushing the paint.  I try to be helpful and encouraging and not bossy-
 but if I am- hey, ignore me!

DUNES XLIX

DUNES XLIX
16" x 20" oil on .75 stretched canvas
4/27/2016
This is another with both brushes and palette knives for nice texture and direction.  It is a little bit different color for me-- I guess I like orange and use it often- haha. No orange here.

Seascape 4

Seascape 4
18" x 24" oil on .75 stretched canvas
4/25/2016
Seascape 4 is created with brushes and palette knives.  It has gestural drawing and thick and thin paint- all to make a more interesting surface.  The directional application and expansion of color make for an open airy feel of the day along the coast.  
It is coated with archival varnish for protection against dust and pollutants and is wired and comes with wall hardware for immediate display.

DUNES XLVII

DUNES XLVII
18" x 24" oil on .75 stretched canvas
This one and DUNES XLVIII were difficult paintings to photograph.  Sometimes it goes that way.  They have some subtle color changes and the dramatic changing sky today didn't help.  But, this is as good as it gets.  Needless to say, more gorgeous in person!

SOLD and off To Brooklyn NY

STORIES/01
SOLD to a Collector in Brooklyn, New York  
This is my favorite of everything I have ever painted.  I really enjoy the color, texture and subject.  I hope it makes someone very happy!

Seascape Tryptych

Seascape Triptych
Each Measures 24" x 24" 
Oil on .25" wood
Signed on Back
I worked very hard on these.  I am exhuasted, but happy not to have left the painting day with these unfinished.  It is Ptown - if you are wondering!  
Wish I had a Dunes Shack this Summer!  It seems like I would of course get one, with my DUNES, Seascapes and Boats, oh well.
