Chit Chat

Pin It
"Chit Chat"
Oil, 6" x 6" on canvas panel.
$200 with display easel.

So, I have painted a lot of boats this summer and I am thinking it is time to mix it up a bit. So, beginning next week you will see new material. That's right. I am moving outside of my comfort zone.
So ... help me out guys. Please let me know what you think I should paint. Just remember I am working exclusively with a palette knife, I really like bright colors and I LOVE reflections. Other than that, I am all open to your suggestions. Let the comments begin!

What a great title for a painting! ;)

A few ideas off the top of my head:
-A series with just red,or blue or yellow objects
-Some cityscenes from Google Streetview (for examples see

The flowers you've done lately have been great - but my 2 favorite paintings are the Pharmacy and City Hall Reflections - so maybe city scenes, similar to your Headlines show?

But I LOVE this!! Where the edge of the reflection of the red boat meets the reflection of the sky, you know - where the red paint bleeds into the blue - marvelous!!

Love this painting. How about some still life set up on a glass surface? As in some wine bottles, glasses, etc? Catalina Island? Summer fun with pool floats, etc reflections in water? Can't wait to see what you do paint--I know it will be fantastic!
