KMD2588 Fleeting Moment (landscape, Southwest, original oil painting)

Once again I am having fun expressing myself using the palette knife as my brush. I love working from photos I took several years back in Basque del Apache in New Mexico. The fall colors are so wonderfully warm and vibrant that I am continually drawn to subjects with those colors.

KMD2587 Glowing Vista (landscape, vista, original oil painting)

Many collectors are surprised when I tell them that I paint over some paintings that just don't go where I had intended them to go. This is one such painting. Once I let go of a painting that isn't working the new painting is almost always a great success. I feel that about this one. It is a cathartic experience to let go of the frustration of a painting going nowhere to opening oneself to a fresh new start.

KM2585 Journey into Spring (landscape, Texas Hill Country, abstracted landscape, bluebonnets)

It has been very busy at the studio with our hosting 2 different fundraisers: The Painted Violin for the Denver Young Artists Orchestra and the Art of Nursing Benefit for the U of Colo College of Nursing. That is my excuse for not posting my small daily paintings as regularly and I also have been working larger paintings as posted here. This is an abstracted landscape done entirely with a large palette knife. It was very freeing to paint this without a brush! This is a scene from last spring in the Texas Hill Country.

KM2584 What are You Looking At (cows, cattle, animal, livestock)

For all the painting I have been doing lately, it feels like I don't have much to show, but then I forget that it takes more time to create these larger paintings. I am also spending more time exploring encaustic painting and some more abstracted works.
I had to do this painting of the cows as they are so curious and whenever you go to photograph them they all turn and come your way to see what you are up to.

KMD2583 Fall Vista (fall, Italy, landscape, autumn landscape)

I found this wonderful picture taken in the Tuscan region of Italy while traveling there with my Brushstrokes Studio partners John and Anita. I painted this with heavy paint on a palette knife. It is a challenge to use the palette knife on these small paintings but really fun to see how much one can simplify a busy landscape with this technique.

KMD2582 Warm Reflections (fall, autumn, waterscape, reflections)

I painted this scene at the end of 2010 and just discovered that I had not posted it.
The subject, of course, is one of my latest fascinations.......patterns of color and design found in water reflections. It is exciting and frustrating to have so much photo reference accumulated and so little time to paint it all. It is a wonderful life to be passionate about creating as it is a continual learning curve with endless possibilities.
