I often get asked how many times I've painted the red inn and honestly I had lost track. So the other day, I decided to go back and count them. Including all the various sizes, angles, and seasons, I've counted 32 paintings. Wow. I even astonished myself with the number. I joke that I'd like try to paint it blindfolded at some point. That would be a fun challenge for sure.
I was pretty good about taking photos along that way of my progress. Polo and I went to the gallery to paint last week, and here are 3 stages before the finish, shown above.
is an award winning artist who paints exclusively with a palette knife. She holds a fine art degree and has worked as a professional graphic designer for many years. She began painting in oil again after taking a palette knife workshop through the Copley Society of Art in Boston and was immediately hooked. The thick, painterly, yet highly detailed strokes of color are trademarks of her style.
