I'm still not as free in my painting as I would like to be - but it was a real experience using a pallet knife for all 5 paintings. We have an art sale that benefits my grandson's school at the end of October and I wanted some seasonal (fall and winter) pieces. I did all 5 over about 3 days. They are meant to be displayed on a small stand.
So - what do you think? Even if you are not into texture this is a great way to loosen up. I will definitely make more of these. Thanks so much for visiting. I am linking to Paint Party Friday. Why don't you hop on over and take a look at some of the beautiful artwork. Have a blessed and creative day!

I am linking to Paint Party Friday hosted by Eva and Kristin (thanks to you both). Go and take a peek at all the wonderful work posted there - they are an encouraging group, so enter your own work there - even if you are a brand new artist. Thanks so much for stopping by - have a blessed and creative day.

I wanted to post last week but things have been a bit chaotic at home. Thus the sporadic blogging. But I have been at work. The studio is very often my sane space - even though it's quite a mess right now.
My grandson's Montessori charter school has an art benefit in October.
These colorful and whimsical little paintings are really the 4 sides of an old wooden box that contained Montessori materials. On the very bottom is another box that I painted by using masking tape. Both are acrylic paints and acrylic Silk paints. The WIP I started yesterday. It's mixed media with collage and acrylic paint. Top right is a 16 x 20" acrylic painting on a birch board. That painting and the boxes (which will have tops and feet) are going to be some of my entries in the art benefit.
Thanks so much for visiting - I am linking to Paint Party Friday - it's a wonderful venue for artist's to share their art with others - big thanks to Eva and Kristin for hosting faithfully. Go and take a look at some wonderful work by talented artists. Have a blessed and creative day.
