I was able to complete this landscape of Venice, Italy while attending the local Arts in the Park festival. It was a beautiful day. The weather was perfect and being surrounded by other artists is always a fun experience.

Art in the Park

I had a wonderful time at the Arts in the Park festival in Orem this past weekend.  I was able to demonstrate my technique to the folks passing by.  I never get tired of hearing people say nice things about my work or hearing them find themselves in the painting.  When someone says, "that reminds me of..." it fills me.  

It surprised that so many people hadn't heard of palette knife painting, even to the point I heard "She paints with a spatula".  

I made some great contacts and had several invites to upcoming exhibitions that I'm excited for.

Palette Knife Painting Slideshow

When I paint I hope to let others see, in a way, what I see and also hope it creates an emotional response for them. Sometimes for me it's just a impulse to run my fingers over the texture of the paint. If you have such an impulse then I feel like I've done my job. This video is a slideshow of some of my palette knife paintings and a little of me in action
