Refreshing Change

I tried something new today. After 21 days straight of still life paintings in my 30 paintings in 30 days competition with Ruth Ann, I needed to try something else. I took this picture of my back driveway a couple of weeks ago and wanted to paint it, but wasn't quite ready for landscapes yet, but today I just didn't feel like trying to set up a creative still life. I used a palette knife, something I like to do once in awhile just for a change.


  1. Hi Kristen-just visiting your blog for the first time. Your paintings are really great--I especially like this one with all the movement and texture. Cool blog!

  2. Beautiful painting, Kristen! LOVE your juicy brush strokes and your design.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous Kristen. Love all of the texture!
