This painting is 30 x 40 inches and is oil on canvas. I painted this artwork with a palette knife, adding blue tones along with turquoise and green oil paints. I layered the white splashes with thick texture which you can see in the image below:
Thick textured layered oil paints really helped bring to life the crashing waves creating wonderful motion and contrast. I can hear the waves crashing while viewing this painting!
This is a SOLD commissioned painting for a collector in Florida and I was happy to paint it for their vacation home.
Giclee Canvas hand signed and numbered prints are now available!
These two paintings SOLD at Elinoff Gallery in Telluride, Colorado. I really enjoyed painting these colorful, fun palette knife paintings. Daydreaming Bear consists of acrylic paints, while Colorful Reflections is an oil painting.

These two bears are fun, whimsical paintings splashed with acrylic colors!
I had a great time painting these as it is a fun break from the heavy oil paints. I got the idea after painting the painting below titled "Paint Horse"
This painting is amazing in person and after painting it I really wanted to try a couple of fun bear paintings. Unlike this horse painting, the bears are loose and free, no muscular definition or shading, just paint splashed with a palette knife and parts of the canvas untouched.
It is always fun to create new ideas and move forward with different techniques!
Prints are available and information about original paintings can be found at my website.
This painting is unlike anything I have created yet. I was looking back at my early creations of acrylic paints and I decided to paint the background with acrylics for a lighter, glowing effect. I painted the horse with oils and continued to add acrylic layers. I then added oil paints to the background for depth and WOW!!
Then the challenge comes of what to name the painting. My son suggested Paint Horse and - well, Yes~! It is full of paint indeed :)
This painting is a palette knife oil painting on canvas. I first added the definition colors, defining the muscles and shadowing of the horse. I continued with layering the colors utilizing thick layers of oil paints to blend the contrasting hues until I received the look I was trying to achieve.
I simply love the outcome of this artwork and I would like to repaint it on a larger scale.
This painting is available at my newest gallery representation at Elinoff Gallery in Telluride, Colorado!
