Today our group did a palette knife painting. Some had not done one before and for some it was their second. I think it was my third. The first one I did was of an old cabin with some sunflowers back in about 1972. This was for a college class. I still have the palette knife that I used for that one. I no longer use it, because I don't really care for it but keep it in my jar of palette knives for sentimental reasons. The second and third ones I did in just the last few months. So it was the blind leading the blind today. We all got a good laugh out of it when I was trying to tell them what to do but then having to say that I don't know what I am doing either. It is very different, but I think everyone enjoyed it and the change of technique. There was less fussing over details. It was fun and I think they turned out very nicely. They are all unique. Thank you Nel for letting us use your painting for a reference. Wish you had been here to teach us what to do. Maybe you would like to make a little trip to Ohio sometime!!
