It's time to reconnect!!

Pink Dahlias In Blue Stoneware

With this palette knife painting  I wanted to get the paint layers really thick. It is also a slightly different palette than I normally use. I really enjoyed painting this one, with all its' subtle color changes and layering.

Pink Dahlias in Blue Stoneware was inspired by the book "On Becoming A Painter" by Robert A Johnson. It is one of the most treasured books in my collection, as it hit a chord within me about how to build layers and make paintings appear real, without the struggle of perfectionism. It was an epiphany for me.

I have decided to keep this painting for my private collection. But I wanted to share it with all of you.

Pink Dahlias In Blue Stoneware, © Cyd Rust, is an acrylic palette knife painting on canvas. 14" x 11" x 1/2"
