And this is the fourth painting in the series of five small 7 x 7 that will be framed all together at the end. All of these paintings are being painted with a pallet knife. It is fun to select which sections of this flower box to paint each day.
This floral painting will be the first in a series of 5 that I am painting in this small size of 7 x 7 inches. The five pieces will then be framed all-together. This summer, I took quite a few photos of my favorite window boxes and they were packed with flowers. I liked this particular window box because it had so many flowers, so many flowers in fact that I am choosing to edit-out half of the flowers as I paint. This will be another interesting experiment for me as the pieces are painted and a surprise as I pull them together as one large piece. Keep checking back to see the paintings that will be combined into this 5 piece project.
This painting is a scene from alongside our Arkansas riverbank this past fall. I painted this piece (except for the sky) using several pallet knives. The paint is laid on the board in thick strokes, giving a highly textural feeling to the painting.

We had a fabulous fall in 2010. I took quite a few walks thru various parks and open spaces; each time bringing my camera along to snap photos..... Since the photos were all wonderful, it is often difficult to choose what to paint. I chose this scene because of the leaning tree in the forefront. It divides the diptych, and yet it also joins the scene together. The composition has both a peacefulness and a tension, similar to the feeling of fall, although strikingly beautiful, you know winter is on its way.
I used both brushes and pallet knives while painting this landscape. When you view the painting in person, you will see the heavy application of oil paint with the pallet knife.

Most dog breeds look to me like they could be entirely different species of animals. It is amazing how much variety there is among dogs. Here is a big dog, who has a great character face.
