Oak Lane

8 X 10 inch oil painting on linen panel.

The painting posted here is a study done in Irvine. I let loose and used both my brush and palette knife. It was fun to play with the paint and experiment a bit. I’m listing it in the “Affordable Studies” section of my site.

I’ve been visiting family for the past week and haven’t had any computer access (which is also why I haven’t been commenting on anyone’s blog).

After going through about 150 emails, I read one that contained great news. Two of my paintings have been juried into “Painting The California Landscape” show at the San Juan Capistrano Mission! Many plein air painters that I look up to will be showing their work alongside mine in this exhibit. I am absolutely floored that my work was chosen and am very excited to be part of this event.

Opening Reception
Friday, April 3rd, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
The show will run April 3rd – July 14th
San Juan Capistrano Mission Barracks Gallery
31414 El Camino Real
San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675

Kim keep using your knife however you did it here!! The textural contrasts add a really amazing layer of dimension/airiness to this painting. That tree in front just pulls so far away from that grayer tree in back. Love this.

And a huge congratulations too! That's awesome about the show.
Oh Kim, I fell in love with it and went to buy it and POOF it was already gone! So pretty, I will be more vigilant next time. *sitting with finger poised over Etsy button*
many hugs from Texas!

Another beautiful painting! Congratulations on the juried show. That is so exciting and very well deserved!!

Also, congratulations on winning by blog giveaway. I wasn't sure if you'd find out via my blog or by the purse arriving on your doorstep. Either way, I knew you'd be surprised when you discovered it on your own, and it was fun vicariously enjoying your surprise. :)

Hi Kim, I found your blog through Rob Ijbema's. This is a great piece, as is "Spring Puddles"--I like the composition in both and the impasto work in "Oak Lane." I look forward to seeing more.

Love this landscape with the juicy impasto! It's a treat to work with both a knife and brush on the same painting!
Congrats on the show, Kim! I hope you will post pictures so we can see you in your glory! The painting arrived yesterday evening and is holding a place of inspiration and honor in my studio. It is amazing. I am just thrilled to own one of your originals! Thanks a million!
