Oil is the answer

I love to work with the palette knife using acrylics or oil. The art of knife painting is enjoyable and exciting. With a knife as painting tool, one can attain certain effects that cannot be accomplished with a brush. Here are two of my latest paintings done in oil. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed it! 

I love to express the peace and beauty of nature I find today, reflecting those of my youth. My interest in art has lasted a lifetime. From the early experiences in school to the present I have always found visual expression most worthy of my time.

Seascapes and trees, a more realistic and impressionistic kind of art, is also on the top of my list of favourite-to-do things!

To be an artist is to believe in life.

 Two days of joy!  Oil on blocked canvas.
