Milk and Cookies

This is my latest knife painting in oil - finished it this afternoon.  It is 5"x7" and is painted on a canvas panel.  Just thought I would share it with you.  The cookies were baked by my friend Patty - she bakes the BEST cookies!

Barbara, love these last 2 pieces, mmmmm! the milk and cookies would just hit the spot. Hope you are feeling much better with your sore mouth, I can sympathize with you.

Barbra Joan...Thanks for commenting on the paintings. My mouth feels somewhat better tonight - guess it will just take time.

Gosh, Barbara. I so love the palette knife paintings (I follow 2 other palette knife painters that I know of). There is nothing you cannot do and you surely set the bar high for artists. Beautiful work and I always love seeing what you will do next!

Barb Sailor said...

AutumnLeaves...you continue to make me feel so good - thanks for the positive comments. Who are the other palette knife painters you follow - i would be interested in seeing their work!

Ginny Stiles said...

seriously...you did with with a palette knife? Naw. Really? (My daughter makes those peanut butter/chocolate cookies. Oh yum. I am feeling the need to get back to acrylic for awhile this spring. All that yummy texture. Can't wait to get into my new studio...about a week.

Krista - Texture is the appeal of palette knife, don't you think? I use a painting knife that comes to a point at the end which allows some control.
Ginny - are you moved yet? Yes - I love those peanut butter cookies with the chocolate kisses also - I could eat the whole bunch. The knife worked well on them because you could actually produce that rough chuncky texture of the cookie.
