I have two pieces that will be featured in the Summer Small Works Show at the Kansas City Stockyards Gallery! The show opens tomorrow, July 16, and runs through August 13, and it's my first time being part of an in-person juried art gallery show. The opening reception is tomorrow July 16 from 5-8pm, and is free to attend. I'll be there at the beginning for a bit!
Both of my featured paintings were created in one layer by palette knife with watercolor paint straight from the tube. Watercolor is a fascinating medium and I love the surprises it creates. And even when trying, you can never create the same painting twice.
"A Bird's Landscape" was mostly a happy accident born of many prior hours of palette knife practice & color experimentation.
"Storms over KC" is a small study created while working in a series attempting to capture the feel of the big summer storms that roll in over KC this time of year.
