Palette Knife Painting

Red Flowers 6x6
SOLD @DPW Hurricane Sandy Fundraiser
I have been paying more attention to leaf raking and perennial planting and purging of the extraneous clutter in our house than I have been to my painting and my blog. I did have a few studio sessions that yielded a couple of wipers but I have also addressed and mailed many Open Studios cards, so that's progress.
Open Studios is November 17th and 18th this year and I will have lots of little paintings for sale.
This palette knife painting is straight out of my head. It was fun mixing and slapping it on, late into the night while I watched a documentary about the Doors. That was a blast from my past!

"Red"  (click to buy)
This month's Girls Just Wanna Paint challenge is 'Chic', a sort of celebration of one of our members who is, without question, a woman of style. 
Because I know that her favorite color is 'Poppy', which is the color of her living room walls, and that she has a red sports car and that she wears red lipstick, this little arrangement spoke her name to me. Tomorrow evening we will all meet at Pam's incredible oceanfront condo for a bite and a laugh and a glass of wine and maybe a fantastic sunset. Cheers, Pam!

Artists in Residence

Every Fall local artists are invited to participate in the Artists in Residence program run by the parents of the Furnace Brook Middle School here in Marshfield. Artists set up in the school lobby and demonstrate their skills and as the kids pass between classes they can stop for a visit.
Last year I tried out a color mixing exercise that let the kids be 'hands on' and they enjoyed it so much that I repeated it today.  
I was joined by Mary McSweeney (in the background) who was doing her beautiful charcoal drawings of dogs. 
A big thanks to the parents and teachers and the kids at FBMS for their enthusiastic warm welcome. Keep making art!
