Nygren Florals, Oil on Gessoed Paper 8" x 6"

Cold, windy and several errands and tasks to complete so I decided to work on a small painting and then get to the other tasks at hand. I opted to work from one of the photos Helen took while we were working at the Nygren Wetland Preserves this past July. I sketched the scene and blocked in my initial colors. As I was ready to start applying body paint, I made a decision to abandon my brushes and work the painting using only palette knives. Perhaps not the best painting, but it was fun to play this way. You never know where it will lead. Hope it drys enough to frame and display at my exhibit at The Next Picture Show.
