My blog find of the week* is a little different this week. Usually, I feature blogs that are instructional, but this week I am featuring a blog because I just really like the art. The blog is The Accidental Artist by Carrie Jacobson. I stumbled on her blog just trolling along using the "next blog" feature at the top of my blog. Carrie does palette knife paintings with COLOR!!! I love color and always feel my paintings may be a little too strong for some people's taste. But Carrie is not afraid to add color and lots of it. I love her paintings!!
Also, I love the fact that she paints with a palette knife. I have tried this once, and it was the most pleasurable feeling to paint with a palette knife. It was very visceral. I want to give it another try. The only thing holding me back is that I feel like I am wasting paint because of the amount that gets wiped off after each stroke. Maybe I will just have to get over that! In the mean time I am going to enjoy looking at Carrie's Art.
