I haven't been blogging in a while because I have been doing a bit of exploring with techniques and trying to find my groove again. I have been finding that my art was becoming stagnant and I was not growing as an artist. My tight realistic style was actually stiffling me and I wasn't enjoying it as I once was. I have moved away from still life and have been doing a lot of landscapes. I always found that when I painted landscapes with a brush I was too finicky and fussy and was never happy with the results. Well all that has changed - I have discovered the PALETTE KNIFE. I am enjoying painting like I never have before and I can actually call myself a daily painter now. I do at least one if not two paintings a day! The palette knife is my new best friend. I absolutely LOVE have liberated and creative I feel when I sit down to paint. My style is slowly emerging and I see it changing almost daily. Here are some collages of a few of the paintings I have done over the past 5 months or so. I have painted at least 50 small 8 x 10 inch panels. This is a great size to do with the knife because it doesn't take me all day to finish one painting.
