Yellow Fields 6, 36″ x 48″ acrylic on gallery-wrapped canvas.

We are just about in full-blown color in southwestern Michigan. Consequently, the yellows are finding their way onto my palette. If you look closely, you can see that the first painting (Graced) is a marriage of thin transparents (giving a water-color appearance), and thick opaques. I am fond of this combination. It only works when my initial transparent foundation is actually something I want to save. Since that’s not a given, I enjoy when it happens.

The last couple of weeks have been a riot of painting! I love it when my physical energy backs up my creative inspiration, giving me just the boost I need to head into the studio and let loose! Hopefully my medicine (dark chocolate!) keeps doing the work, haha.

I’d like to give a special “Welcome!” to the many new artists and collectors who recently signed in to follow my website! As always, feel free to comment, connect, or ask questions through my email: karin@knelsonart.com. 

PS: All the paintings above are currently available.
