I made a sale! Yesterday I said goodbye to one of my personal favorite paintings. This particular painting was one of a series I called “Modern Petroglyphs” and was started back in 2010, and stopped around 2012. It was also one of those rare paintings (and many of you artists know what I am talking about) that I can still look at and not be embarrassed about or wince every time I glance at it. In fact..I like it! Glad to see it going to a good home.
In addition to the sale, I was also commissioned to make another painting for the same patron (and friend)
Here is the work that sold. Love working in this highly textured manner.
Jar Of Mums, 6″ x 6″, oil on canvas (buy now)
# 2 of my ”90 paintings in 90 day challenge.” This one was done using a palette knife to apply the paint. At six inches square, it was quite a challenge to move the paint around using only a knife, but I always like the thick impasto effects this technique creates.
Thanks for stopping by. If you like this painting, it can be yours by clicking “buy now” underneath the image.
At last, I have finally put together a new website complete with a blog! Here is a painting I did when I lived in Olympia, Washington (2002-2005) It was one of my early sales, and it was purchased by a repeat customer. It was great knowing that someone thought my art was good enough to purchase. I am so grateful for that early patronage.
