Seascape Palette Knife Oil Painting


"Seaside"
10 x 10 inches, Oil on Gallery wrapped canvas
Although we had some weather and snow flurries, I think my heart is looking forward to warmer days. Long, long, long and oh so long ago I visited the beaches north eastern part of Florida and remember the dunes and the salt grasses...but when someone asks me what beach I've painted I am at a loss because I also remember the beaches in Australia near Phillip Island where I went to go watch the penguins come out from the sea to feed their young one very cold November evening. And I spent many a youthful day on the beaches of Enoshima and Kamakura in Japan...

Ahhh...this is my fave now. :-)
Perhaps it has to do with spring fever, and a longing for a vacation, but this is lovely. You have a talent for depth that I haven't seen in your still life paintings, which rely on your color talent more than composition. But the knifework in this piece is wonderful.
Beautiful...

Wow! I love this Judy. Not only because it a little bigger than what I've been seeing but it's so refreshing after all this rain and gloom.

Judy...came to your blog via Joan's...love your work...your use of the limited palette and the looseness in your brushwork/palette knife is just great. I really enjoyed perusing your work. I look forward to following.
