The Wishing Bird (Revisited)

6"x6" Oil on Gessoed Panel
with Palette Knife

While recently painting a Cardinal (see previous post), I also revisited a painting from two years ago titled "The Wishing Bird."  See the link below to learn the origin of that name. 
You can also compare my technique and development between then and now. 
My… how time flies.

Winter Reflections

24"x30" Oil on Canvas
with Palette Knife

THIS painting, I'm particularly proud of. It is  a 24"x30" palette knife painting of wintery reflections on the surface of the Harpeth River. It is for the The Chestnut Group's Cumberland on Canvas event. I have painted water reflections before, but this is largest surface I have ever attempted. I'm very pleased with the result. I love how it is recognizable yet abstract, which was my goal for this piece. It shows well in the modern urban exhibit space of the Bridge Building. If you are in Nashville this weekend, I highly recommend that you stop by and take a look.
