Tropical Fish Painting, Florida Wildlife Painting, Palette Knife Painting.

This is another fish painting from my coral reef series.  Are you bored with this series yet?  I still have a few to post before moving on to another subject.

 Another fish painting.  Don't ask what kind of fish it is, I don't know.

I do know I am enjoying these palette knife paintings immensely.  I have been so intense about my brush work, that I had ignored the palette knife for months.  Now that I am working with it again, I am enjoying the freedom it brings.

Thanks for reading my blog today.

Better Days Ahead, Summer Memories, Daily Painting, Palette Knife Art, SOLD



Will this virus never go away? Days sometimes feel dreary.  I feel that way too, and decided it was the perfect time to paint something bright and cheery.

Just a little reminder of summer and happier days ahead!

I have been working, working, working, on my Etsy site, turning me into a computer operator!  Day after day, sitting at the computer for hours at a time.

Finally, I just couldn't take it anymore.  I had to get back into the studio!
I had so much fun with this piece!  It seems like forever, since I had a palette knife in my hand.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed painting it, and thanks for stopping bye today.

Have a great day!

Ocracoke Island, Palette Knife Art, Daily Painting, Small Oil Abstract, SOLD


The Outer Banks on North Carolina have been on my mind.  I was thinking of Ocracoke when I painted this little abstract seascape.

The Outer Banks is like no other place I have visited. Surrounded by water, the residents are a hardy type who take pride in providing for themselves.  The danger of living there, is still felt, as the tropical storms and hurricanes devastate the dunes and road on a regular basis.  In earlier times, shipwrecks littered the beaches.

I painted with a palette knife and oils, leaving it as raw and wild as the beaches.

Thanks for viewing my art today.
