"Old Reservation" - Lexington, MA

"Old Reservation" is the result of a first attempt at using pallette knives and heavy body acrylics for a vurtually
"brushless" landscape.

Mt. Hood Golfcourse - below - has a few
knife-work flowers painted into it, and when I tried it I was immediately hooked on the way the paint went to the canvas panel with a knife (as opposed to a brush). The foliage in this painting was done with a large brush, but the balance of it is done with knives.

.......totally different feel.
