Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, "A Cool One" by Carol Schiff, 10x10x.75 Oil

Serving up Margarita today!  This small oil painting, worked with a palette knife, is chock full of ice cubes, lime slices and a salty rim.

Purchase here
150 + shipping

Painted with a palette knife and lots of chunky texture.  I had a little difficulty bringing interest to this painting.  When that happens, my first line of attack is the palette knife.  I like the subtle color changes I can achieve with the knife and of course I can give it as much or as little texture as I desire.  Usually I desire a lot of texture!  I have to remind myself that less is more.
It's always after 5:00 somewhere, so bottoms up!

If you like this, please pin it for me.....
