These high textured oil paintings are the way I start my studio day. They are executed with a painting knife on quality paper and come matted in a clear bag. The painting is 8x8 inches. With the mat (included) it measures 12x12 inches. These paintings look great in 12x12 frames, with or without glass!
Throughout my life I have always been involved in artistic endeavors. Although my MS is in education, I have completed art related course work. I am self taught and worksas a full time artist in my studio. My work has been represented in galleries, shows, and exhibitions. I create much of the texture in my paintings using a painting knife with acrylic paint and mediums. Different media such as lightweight pumice, sand, paper, acrylic mediums and other media create high texture my paintings. I often contrast texture with smooth glazes in the same painting. Contrast is the essence of my work. For me art is an exploration of contrasts. I believe that art need not be over-explained. Art speaks to each of us loudly, quietly, or not at all, but always individually!
