Life's Not Still . . . .




More fruit 'portraits' . . . . I just got back from Bermuda and New York City, still getting into the swing of things.
I'll give a run down of what I saw and a little insight into the art that I checked out, talk about stimulating the brain, it was brilliant.

more more more soon.

Awesome paintings, so loose and close to abstraction, but still authentic colours, values and edges, a pleasure to look at :)
Are these done with a painting knife only?

Andy- thanks for leaving your thoughts on my blog, I really do like to hear all forms of feedback. As for your ?
No these aren't done strictly with a palette knife. I start with a brush to set the painting up in full color and value before I use a palette knife. Then I work back and forth between the two. Often I put down a lot of paint with the palette knife and work it around with a brush. So a variety of strokes, surfaces, and edges is what I am after. Check back for more and tell your other artist friends. I certainly like to look at a wide range of art.

I love what you've done to make these fruits actually come alive, yet remain still. They remind me a little of the sun's boiling/looping corona. You were able to maintain AND blur an object's edge without making mud of the subject. A variety of brush strokes is something I'd like to expand on in my own work and you've given me a lot to absorb here. Keep up the great work!
