I am always looking for new ways to drive my creativity. Social media is a great place to find new ideas and tools to try. Georgia artist, Debbie Grove, inspired me–even encouraged me–to try palette knife painting.
I am that artist who has a million different kinds of art supplies, whether I use them or not. I’ve had this palette knife set for a while and finally started playing around with it this past summer. I wanted to try my hand at Pet Portraits and this seemed to be the perfect way to try palette knives. After a few dogs, I think I’ve gotten the hang of it.
It’s certainly the loose painting that makes this type-A gal go a little berserk. Yet, the lack of perfection is what I need to push my work to the next level. Last week, I tried my hand at the ocean. I will say, it’s not bad. This piece is available, Blustery 6″ x 6″ acrylic on canvas. Contact me for purchase. $40 + shipping. Local pick-up available.
