Red Dish with Orange - SOLD

"Red Dish with Orange", 9 x 9 In, Oil on Museum Board SOLD
This is another of my palette knife painting experiments. What I like about using the palette knife is that it forces me to really mix the colors on the palette in large enough quantities to be both nuanced and distinct from other colors.


  1. Kathryn, I am enjoying your palette knife paintings, I can't believe you have just started painting with a knife!! Your paintings look every bit like you know exactly what you are doing!! They are exciting and alive with color and texture! Really special.

  2. I love the spoon! The reflected color is wonderful and makes me think of the late evening golden light. The whole painting glows!

  3. Love this! Love the bits of color inside the bowl! Spoon is also stellar.

  4. What a piece. Now this is my fave piece.
    I love the way you worked the inside bowl and spoon as well.

  5. Another wonderful little piece. You've got something going on there with that palette knife. I am inspired!

  6. nice warme colors. Very painterly
