I have been fascinated with the palette knife and while I paint my recent rquested commission for three pigs for a rancher in Texas, I will add another plein air landscape called "Chance of Rain". There is something magical about working with the palette knife and a thick helping of paint. Fall is here on our little Sutter Creek ranch in the foothills . The old oaks are dropping acorns and and dusting the pasture with leaves. It is a lovely time of year and makes for, "A Painting Day".
