Jerry F. completed this nice work last week at the Senior Center.
Acrylic on panel, 16 X 20. 2014
We have had a pair of Hairy Woodpeckers at our feeder all winter. For this work, a heavy coat of modeling paste was brushed on a 9 X 12 canvas. A light wash of Burnt Sienna followed by a light scraping with a pallet knife produced a nice background. The painting was completed with a # 14, round brush.

Acrylic on panel, 9 X 12, 2014.
My first painting of 2014. This work was done on a panel with two thick coats of acrylic modeling paste applied with a pallet knife. I used a 3″ short nap roller to lay in the sky, water and basic tree shapes. The painting was completed using no brushes, only a pallet knife and tooth pick. I like the rough surface texture and will experiment with this process over the next group of paintings.

Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 7,700 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.
