Lamoille in the Fall

18x24 Oil Palette Knife painting
You asked for it! A palette knife painting....Whew,... do
you know how long it has been since I did a total
knife landscape? Hmmmm, at least 16 years ago,
probably longer but I failed to date the last
one I did and cannot really remember.

I enjoyed the challenge and loved the freedom of this
style of painting. Very satisfying when you backup
and see that the blob of paint you just put on
actually does look like a tree!
Thanks for Visiting!

Lamoille Fall ~ Study

5x7 OIL
Copyright 2008 Kathryn Grider All rights reserved
This is a small study that I am planning on painting a larger
version of in the very near future. It won't be long
now....down to just a few weeks that I will be able to have
this view in the canyon, I am hoping I can go do some more
Plein Air painting up there before the weather gets too cold!
My son told me today.....according to the Farmers
Almanac we are in for a COLD winter... so I am hoping to drag
my pack mule (my husband) out before the winter season starts.

I started this painting on the first lake we hiked to. It was a
very serene place and you could watch the fish jumping in the
lake, however we didn't catch anything here. My oldest
granddaughter kept asking me about the sticks in
the water... you know...."How did they get there?"
....."What was there first the tree or the water?"
Seeing life through a childs eyes....almost makes me
wish I were a kid again!
Thanks for Visiting!
