Birch Tree Painting - Palette Knife - Acrylic on Canvas 18 x 24 -Framed

This is my new Abstract Landscape painting titled "Birch Trees. It's Acrylic on Canvas 18 x 24 (Framed). The trunks were done with palette knife, it's about 50/50 palette knife & brushwork. I took a lot of photos of this one, both framed and unframed, closeups and side views so those interested could get a better feel for this painting. It was a joy to do and one of those paintings that came together like magic. Really don't want to sell it but I need the money for supplies. Running out of everything. So "Birch Trees" is available for sale directly from this artist. Price: $250.00 Shipping: $40.00 UPS Ground 1-5 days. Please note this item ships framed and is ready to hang right out of the box. I refurbished a solid oak wood frame, sanded it down, laid down an undercoat then hand brushed a beautiful antique gold finish over it. The color complements the painting well. If you prefer the painting un-framed I can also shipped it that way as well, also ready to hang as is with the sides painted and hanging hardware attached. Un-framed would lower the cost by $50.00. Please email your preferences.

Seriously considering doing another birch tree painting after this one is done.

Old Door with Potted Plants

Acrylic on Canvas Panel, 12 x 16, framed with 1.5 inch stretcher bars and claw tooth hanger attached, Side Painted Black, when finished it can be hung as is. What great fun this piece has been so far, some palette knife work and brush work too. Falling more in love with impressionism with each new painting, this piece was not pre-sketched unto the panel. I did it alla prima style just painting with the brush, eye balling and approximating the shapes and color values as I went. Painting loosely with painterly flare, something I've always struggled to achieve seem to come effortlessly with this piece. Used the palette knife to cut into the florals and negative space in between. Also used it to apply heavier texture in areas of the door. I do not photograph paintings very well and photographed several of these images in poor lighting. Photographed from different angles so viewers can get a better feel for this painting, Looks better in person. "Old Door with Potted Plants currently on exhibit at the Rebel's Center Gallery and is available for sale - $150.00. Free local pick up. Professionally packaged and insured to avoid transit damage. Ships USPS $20.00 Expedited shipping in one business day. If you have any questions regarding this transaction or any other of my listings please email me!
