Here is an oil done only with palette knife. Easy clean up and great texture can be had when painting this way. Because this painting uses mostly high key (light) values, it was a bit hard to capture the subtleties with the camera. But in person its kinda cool.
I have decided to open my studio in Bodega Bay to folks this Fall for just 3 days. Since I left my gallery partnership in June, many people have written to ask where they can find my work…that is so gratifying and I thank you. Because I live in a very quit place, I don’t want to open things up to the entire public so I have just sent an invitation to my mailing list. So if you want to visit and did not get an email, please contact me. Dates are Saturday September 18th, Friday October 15th and Sunday November 14th. I figure this staggered schedule will accommodate almost everyone who has been writing to find out where to see my new work. And I have lots of new work now that I finally have time to paint!
