I LOVE doing abstracts; what started as an attempt to get rid of excess paint on a blank canvas turned into this - once I started I couldn't stop! I get mesmerized by colors and how they play off each other




This is a work in progress and will be for Karin, my travel partner. She paid for hotel rooms in Italy in exchange for paintings of her cats.




Another work in progress, a commission

Hey Rachooooo! Your art just keeps getting better and better! I like your new abstract painting. The colors are definitly intrigueing, but the textures are even more amazing! Keep up the good work my friend!

Love the abstract. How do you get the palette knife to place such a perfect swatch? I would love to attempt a similar style.

Hey Nan -
I just used a small pallette knife and the same stroke over and over.
