I will be doing a couple commission pieces for a collector. She likes the Floral III- Violet and Floral II - Scarlet but will need them in larger sizes. The Violet piece will be just a larger scale replica but the Scarlet will be going in an entry way and will be tall and skinny. In deciding the look and feel I like to lay it out like this:

*Extra thick impasto layers of oil paint in shades of vibrant pink, green, and yellow against a black and gray abstract background.
This palette knife painting is pretty much my best attempt at placing the biggest globs of paint on a canvas ever. I used big circles of bright pinks, greens, light yellows, black and white. The depth and texture on this painting is by far the most I've done. It turned out quite modern and fun.
This painting came about for a little furniture store (that's a big hit) called Tammi's Finder's Keepers. Tammi restores old furniture and creates the most beautiful home decor ensembles. I go down to her store take pictures and create paintings to match the room(s). It's a fun challenge and I really enjoy it.

A close family member is having her first baby and she wants to mark the occasion with something special; my palette knife paintings are among her favorite things, so she commissioned me for the job. She brought me a quilt that she is going to decorate with and asked me to use it as the basis for a few commemorative paintings we will hang on the new baby's wall....
If you have a quilt or bedding set you would like me to duplicate as a knife painting please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
