My painting in Plein Air Magazine!

I was so pleased to see the wonderful article about flower painting in the March issue of Plein Air Magazine ....and there's my painting, "Bucket of Sun"! What an honor!

Amaryllis Study    16x20 oc

I used a little painting knife technique in this painting.  I wanted to play a little with the technique as I know several artists whose work I admire that use painting knives throughout their process. I often paint in a way that simulates that technique, using brushwork to accomplish my goals, but I thought it was time to see how the knife would differ.  It felt a little awkward not being used to it, but I'm sure I will continue to practice at it.
