The Outer Banks on North Carolina have been on my mind. I was thinking of Ocracoke when I painted this little abstract seascape.

I enjoy a challenge....and for me, this was a challenge. I would hate to tell you how much time I spent on this little 6x8" piece.
Thanks for reading my blog.

Since we are on the subject of dogs...............meet Bennett
A client sent me a photo to work with on this piece. The dog was such fun to paint. I just knew that Bennett was high energy and fun loving. Don't you agree?
The better the photo, the better the painting.

I have been continuing to research and experiment with fluid art, and finally I feel I have made a little progress.
I was very happy with this one, that appears to be hundreds of little bubbles, but is actually hundreds of little cells.
Is this year flying bye or what? I think we will all be happy when it is gone!

The most enjoyable experiences, I get out of painting, almost always involves a palette knife. I may start out with a brush in hand, but eventually the knife takes over.
This was my first experience. I started on a canvas with a half finished painting. One I had lost interest in ever finishing.

I picked these hydrangea from my garden and was compelled to paint them. Hydrangea are probably my very favorite flowers and I love the summer months when my home is surrounded with their massive blooms.
I wanted to keep the painting as simple as the pitcher and mug.
For me, keeping it simple usually means "palette knife".
This original painting is sold, but it can be ordered as a giclee print on canvas, paper or wood. You can find it on my Etsy link below.
Enjoy your day!

A client wanted a cow painting, for licensing purposes. I usually do daily painting of still life or landscape, but I have to admit I enjoyed both the horse, they originally chose, and this cow painting.
250 + shipping
I painted on Senso linen canvas. I had a pad of the linen around for several years but didn't really know what to do with it. I found it had a different texture than the cotton canvas I usually paint on, but once I got into the painting, it was fine.

So, today I stretched my limits, both with the Senso canvas and the cow painting, and luckily both worked out for me!
This is a re-post, and the cow has been sold. However, if you are interested, giclee prints are available on canvas and wood planks, in the size of your choice. Check it out on my Etsy site at the link below
