I did this portrait mostly with a palette knife. Or more precisely, I used old credit cards. I like that I can cut them up to different sizes; works really well for me. I’m really liking the effects you can get painting this way. I may have to try some more like this. Thanks to my wife for kindly serving as my model.

This is a painting of a park in the downtown of the town I grew up in, Ottumwa, Iowa. I’m hoping to do a series of four paintings based on the four seasons and featuring landmarks from around town.
By the way, this painting was inspired by a great photo I found on Flickr:
I encourage you to check out Kate’s other work, she’s got a great eye.
