Give Away Painting

Give Away Painting Oil on Canvas Panel, 6" x 8" Appreciation Painting. Won by Dana Pritchard. My students will recognize this one. It was one of their exercises in value study for the class in oils we just finished. It was done from a photo by Martyn Pattison, called Path Through the Woods at Lambdown Hill. It has a creative commons tag on it, so it was okay for teaching and studying, but I can't sell it. So...it's a give away. If you like it, and are either a former student or have bought one of my pieces within the past year or so (I'm not checking) please leave a comment here on the blog. Thanks for all the encouragement and support! Nel Addendum: Congratulations to Dana Pritchard, winner of this little piece.

Nel, I love your paintings and this one is particularly beautiful. Am enjoying the 2 hanging in my office, and also learned a lot from your class. Looking forward to taking another!

Nel, how like you to give away a painting. I have so enjoyed collecting your art and watching you grow over the last two years. Now your works grace every room in my house.

I like the textures and colors of this painting and am appreciating your palette/knife work lately.

Love the new style! Your use of the palette knife adds such dimension to your paintings! I just had a showing of your works to my family on mother's day...Everyone commented on your pansies in the kitchen, so we toured through the dining room and living room viewing the hydrangeas and irises...a combination art and garden show! Thank you for sharing your talents with us all!

I love the Give Away painting with the beautiful colors of blue, purple and green. I especially like the sun spots. Also, love the texture. I am enjoying your painting Sun in the Tree Tops.

I've purchased at least 6 of your paintings over the last couple of years and I must say that they have each added such cheer to my home and to my sister and daughter in law's homes as well. Each one is like having dessert before the main course! Thank you for your giving spirit, your commitment to your work and your joy in sharing that commitment with us all.

This painting reminds me of the lavender soap I bought today. Yummy! Your technique keeps getting better and better, and coming from a person who really doesn't have the knack for painting, but loves color and texture, the palette knife adds such dimension. Keep up the great work.

I just bought my first painting from you, Apples on Red. I love it, by the way. It would be wonderful to have another one of your pieces.

This is lovely, Nel, both vibrant and subdued, plus I like the texture. We have yet to have too many paintings! Our oldest arrived home, noticed and commented (even better,)about how much he liked the painting we bought earlier (dusk with lights on water.) How nice that you are touching the future with beauty.

Nel, I've always loved your works. This giveaway painting is no exception. Kind of a French impressionist feel.......

I'm probably to late, but "Simply White" is lonely for a little cousin!
