oil 6x8 inches magnify/purchase That space between the crock and the orange had been bugging me. For some time I'd wanted to try painting with a palette knife. So with a bit of time on my hands I took the dry painting just above and smeared the paint on. A lot like frosting a cake. Purely experimental. For some really great palette knife paintings, check out David Boyd Jr.'s work.
Here's a trick I've been using for a while. It enables me to paint right off the edges of my panel. I use several loops of wide painter's tape on the back of my panel to stick it onto a larger piece of MDF board from Home Depot. It stays on for painting, for carrying it around to photograph it, or laying it under a warm lamp to dry. Works for larger panels too. Just use more tape loops.
Here's my display at the Balboa Art Walk. What a blast! Twenty linear feet of space, perfect weather, a friendly crowd and great sales. Special thanks to the friends who visited and kind folks who purchased my work. Thanks for supporting my habit!
