I have been working on using the palate knife for a long time.  Some things come out better than others, but to get better this is a road I need to follow.

I ran into this video over the weekend and thought it was good enough to share.  The artist is Mike Pintar and he is a Wisconsin artist who as far as I can see uses a viriety of styles, & paints.  I really love his style, he is easy to follow, and understand.

Lately I’ve been working on a couple of things, but I’m in my studio for about 4 – 6 hours a day painting and creating.  For me it’s a miracle, and when the muse is here, I certainly don’t want to push it away.  So while you are watching this video, and hopefully getting some new ideas, I’m going to be working on some things that are in the process of being finished.

I think the video is perfect for a gloomy rainy day.  So get some popcorn, and enjoy the show, I know I did!
