I was playing around with the palette knife, putting layer after layer on the canvas. I may need to put a few details on the flowers, but need to let it dry. The paints were applied with the palette knife, so it will take a while to dry. Thanks for looking at this blog....Kay
This painting is sold, but I want to paint more piggies in the near future, so I thought I would think about layout and composition now. I saw some pigs and hogs at the Texas State Fair last week, and that was inspiration to get into the studio and paint. John and I went to the Pig Races at the Fair...that was fun! Thanks for looking at this blog....I will have some new roosters posted soon, as I have four unfinished ones on my easel. Kay

I just varnished this painting at the studio yesterday. It has lots of color and texture, as I used the palette knife on this one. Framing is optional with the gallery wrap canvas. Contact me for more information on this painting. Thanks for looking....KMW
Inspired by a dinghy tied up in a small fishing village in Maine, I painted this small 12" x 12" panel with a palette knife and a flat brush. The rocks at the shore have texture, as I used the knife to apply the thick oils. Looking through my photographs from this trip to Maine, I would like to do a series of boat paintings...Thanks for looking at this blog and the art posted. This painting is hanging at the studio.
