I began painting "Joyful Garden" this past weekend in Vermont while attending a palette knife workshop presented by Cynthia Rosen.  I completed it on my return home. The inspiration for this painting was a photo of one of my beautiful gardens. I am looking forward to painting more floral pieces outdoors this year... spring through autumn.

SUNFLOWERS - Original Palette Knife Painting by Marina Petro

I painted "Sunflowers" this past weekend at the Southern Vermont Art Center in Manchester, VT while attending a palette knife workshop presented by Cynthia Rosen.
I finished another garden painting when I got back home and will post it this weekend. 

It is energizing and inspiring to attempt new painting techniques. Palette knife painting is so much different than painting with a brush. I also used acrylic paint for their rapid drying properties rather than oil paint which is my primary medium.

What fun!

"Cosmic Serpent"

Original oil painting on 1.5 deep stretched canvas
Does not need a frame

"Cosmic Serpent" was painted (and I thought completed) quite some time ago. However, the eyes always looked a bit too 'friendly' to me but it was just a week or so ago that I decided to fix them more to my liking. Glad to make this powerful piece available.
