Two people in love dancing by the marsh, what a way to start the New Year, or any day! This was a very special commission for a husband and wife celebrating life, given by their daughter for Christmas.
Happy New Year to all, hoping it brings good health and tender sweet moments to you and those you hold dear.

Celebration of Life Dance

The Red Pier

This painting has been under wraps because it was a Christmas commission. A very special client came to me a few months ago asking me to paint her three grandchildren at the lake. One of the things she shared was their love to feed the ducks. Linda commissioned this as a gift for her daughter and son-in-law.

Christmas is such a special time, family and friends gather to make new memories and to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
I’ve always wanted to paint the nativity but wanted to do it in a fresh colorful manner. I first prepped the base with tissue paper and gesso, finally I used my palette knife to apply the paint on this richly textured and colorful painting.
If you are interested in purchasing prints or the original oil painting please contact me.
Wishing you a truly precious Christmas.

The palette knife lends itself to a thicker impasto style painting and I love the fresh juicy paint look. Artist Leslie Saeta is posting a challenge on her blog to help artists show their work and to practice their skills, it’s called thirty paintings in thirty days. I painted this pear as a practice piece. Anyway, I’m thinking about joining this challenge and just wanted your thoughts, do you think I can paint thirty paintings in thirty days? Your comments and encouragement are most welcome, leave me a comment below. Thanks!
