A large, abstract palette knife painting of San Francisco's most cherished occupant, the superbly anachronistic cable car! Highly textured and colorful, this modern painting brings an abstract but stylistic touch and the subject matter resonates with tourists, and locals alike! I named it 'A Fond Farewell' as they are just gone so quickly, like a noisy little hummingbird, and I'm rather fond of them.

My Artist's Statement:

Lisa is an award winning, modern palette knife artist with an unmistakable style, and colorful liveliness in her distinctive paintings. Given the name “The Knife Queen” by one of her many facebook fans, Lisa maneuvers her artistic knife with an uncanny fluidity. She creates vibrant landscapes, cityscapes, and portraits, hanging internationally in collectors’ homes across the USA, England, Ireland, UAE, Australia, New Zealand, and the Netherlands. It takes a very talented and accomplished artist to use a painting or palette knife. This technique is unique, as the paint is applied very thickly, adding subtle highlights with a beautiful sense of light and movement. Combined with this, is Lisa’s outstanding ability to capture with her knife the incredible detail and personal elements that will resonate with your subconscious, and transport you into her colorful world of visual transcendence.
