Palette Knife Hydrangeas - SOLD

Palette Knife Hydrangeas
Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 16"

I've been scanning a new artist today (new to me, anyway) and she's fantastic. I am trying to figure out how I can get from the level where I am to a level like where she is. A class? A series of workshops? I'm not sure. More practice drawing? A concentration on composition? I need to study, I think.

Here's the link to Kim's gorgeous work:

and notice what that skill level fetches! THAT'S where I wanna be.

Lake Sunset - SOLD

Lake Sunset
Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 16"

Since I had these colors out anyway, I decided to do a made-up sunset, with a bare tree and some beach grasses.

Lemon and Plum - SOLD

Lemon and Plum
Oil on Canvas Panel, 5" x 7"

I just adore these intense colors together.
Plums are gorgeous anyway, but then to pop a high yellow next to it? YUM.

Sunflower Medley - SOLD

Sunflower Medley
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"

Last week Monday I bought two bunches of sunflowers for around $20. But they didn't last at all, having wilted by Wednesday. So on Thursday, with a ride at hand, I took them back to the store, and got two new bunches. Now THESE are lasting!

But I'm getting tired of painting them, and I know you must be tired of seeing them, so this will be the last one for now. Tomorrow something different.

Sunflower Skirts and Tutus - SOLD

Sunflower Skirts and Tutus
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"

Something with sunflowers, but from a little different view.
Don't the leaves and fringes remind you of skirts and tutus?
