Painting Knife Workshop

I was getting ready to teach a Painting Knife workshop this weekend, and stumbled upon a couple of Oldies But Goodies that I thought I'd pull out of the archives.  Both were painted thinly at first, using a brush, then I got out the trusty knife and laid down thick paint over everything I could.  They are still among my all time favorites.

And now for a little news-- I've started to teach art in the continuing education department at Harper College in Palatine, Illinois.  So far, so good!  Still teaching at Mainstreet, too.

If you get Southwest Art magazine, you'll see an ad with some of my paintings there this month.  It was part of their American Impressionist Society feature.

Lots of teaching, not much posting!  I hope to get back to the easel very soon!


  1. Hi Ann,
    I love seeing your work and hearing about all your new adventures. It was so nice to see you today. As my schedule goes back to "normal" I should be able to take some of your mini-workshops. Or even at Harper, I live pretty close.

  2. So nice to view your works of ART! I like the floral...It's a BEAUTY!

  3. Ann I loved seeing these knife painted portraits, interesting how you say you painted them thinly, then applied the thick paint wherever you could. very effective.
