JUST SOLD!
(Thank you!)
"Glowing Garden" was painted with brush and palette knife. The palette knife added very nice texture and another type of spontaneous expression. There is less control with the knife. It's been  an interesting excursion in expanding my creative direction since I've been experimenting with the knife with both oil and acrylic paints.

6 x 6 inches

Framed at 8 x 8 inches
Original oil painting on archival canvas panel

This painting is an idea  I got when I cropped a much larger celestial painting which featured the moon. By now those of you who have been following my artwork must surely realize my special relationship with the moon. Often enough, when I think I've finished a painting, I'll get the impression to paint in a moon....love it!

"The Happy Garden"

Certificate Of Authenticity provided with every original painting.


THE HAPPY GARDEN  was created plein air at the entrance to the famous Victoria Pool  
at Saratoga State Park in Saratoga Springs, NY. - my current and very beautiful home town! 

The flowers on my table in the photo with my painting gear were presented to me that afternoon by the man who plants all the beautiful floral displays throughout the park - he is truly an artist as well! This year's displays are the best ever.

As I was finishing up this painting, a woman passed by and loudly exclaimed how HAPPY this painting made her feel.....hence.....it's name!

Today's Quotation:  "There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”
