Oil with palette knives on board
This was the second painting we completed in the 4 week palette knife painting workshop I led for the Franklin Senior Center last month. It was a good test in creating atmospheric depth and the boat was created using just a few strokes of white paint.

Hi Jumpstarters! Welcome to Week 16. In 2021 we all should be able to start thinking about having art shows in person again so it's a great time to think about creative ways to get participants interested and involved in the show. Let's move beyond standing around eating cheese and crackers.
Here is your free worksheet. Have fun!

Oil with palette knives on Ampersand Gessobord
This is the first of a series of paintings of the buildings on Commercial Street in Provincetown inspired by this painting by Norman Rockwell of Stockbridge, MA at Christmastime.
If you've ever walked along Commercial Street, each building and store has its own personality, which I just love. And I wanted to capture that in this piece.
Here is a photo after I completed the buildings and before the sky and the sidewalk were painted in.

Oil with palettes knives on cradled board
This painting may look familiar to you if you follow my blog. That's because it is the third time I've painted this scene. The daughter of the customer who purchased the second one wanted one to hang in her apartment in New York. Each time I paint it, it comes out a little differently of course but I'm happy with the how the colors turned out in this version.
Here is a progress shot I took a long the way. I always start with the buildings and work my way towards the foreground.
