When I forgot to bring brushes to KahNeeTa resort earlier this year, I painted with a butter knife. The effect was a fresh look, so I’ve painted another. This one is also a KahNeeTa scene.

I pulled out paint tubes of color that I often ignore. I call them my ugly colors… Phthalocyanine Blue, Indanthrene Blue, Quinacridone Gold, and Sap Green. They are not so ugly when grouped together.

This painting was painted plein air last week but I spent a few days looking at it and making touchups to brighten the colors.

The use of large, obvious brush strokes is something I do in many paintings, though you don’t see them in my blog very often.

Only about half seem to turn out right the first time, so I massage them for months and perhaps get a few more that work.

Brick Wall
Monthly Painting Challenge

For April’s Monthly Painting Challenge, we are painting a fairly flat image; a brick wall with climbing ivy and electrical boxes and tubes.

This panel is the third attempt to render something interesting.
Painting every brick is tedious and sometimes renders a boring painting. So I’ve tried circular strokes rather than rectangular.

Flowerpot Around the Corner

I think this is my quickest painting yet (just an hour). I’m working on loose brush strokes and exaggerated color.
I just downloaded 64 photos from my phone which were mostly gardens around my neighborhood. Corvallis is sure a pretty place to live!

These three panels were inspired by the bright colors at the pumpkin patch we visited in November of 2008. Purple rain boots against the orange pumpkins, the bright yellow-green apple tree leaves, and the blue shadows made some colorful images.

Purchase these individually or all three to hang a triptych in your living room or office. They are featured at  ModPod, Modern Fun Furnishings, on Second Street in Corvallis, Oregon.
