Palette Knifed

I went back three times to this spot to work on this piece that was inspired by the mysterious (to me) death of a well-known, plein-aire painter, Louisa McElwain. Melinda reminded me to take a look at her bold approach a couple of weeks back. And when searching for her, on the web, I discovered she had died. I watched a video of her painting and was inspired to try using a palette knife and lots of paint. I’m very happy with this one. Just need to fix the sky. In honor of you, Louisa. Wish I’d known you.

  1. Really love this one — Bet it’s even better “live” with the textures. Thanks for sharing your work!
