Sides painted, no frame required. 15 x 20 x 1.5 inches. www.lisaelley.com This painting was a happy experiment with my usual birches and aspens. I was a little looser with my knife, not trying for straight lines, or exact form, just going with the feeling. Fun!

Gallery Represented, International Award Winning Palette Knife Oil Paintings by Lisa Elley
Introduction
All my paintings are in oil, using mainly palette knives, with thick application, bold strokes, painterly detail and rich colors. 
The palette or painting knife gives my art a unique combination of contrast, fluidity, depth, texture and impact. I do not typically use a brush, as I prefer the way I can mix buttery paints and smear them on my canvas with a flexible metal blade. The amazing thick texture achieved with the knife reflects the light more than a regular brush painting and gives a beautiful sense of movement, with subtle highlights.
I am originally from New Zealand, where the beauty of nature is unsurpassed. After 15 years living in Florida, USA I am currently back in Auckland where the luminescent beauty of my homeland inspires me and I feel it in every stroke. I try to reflect this in my work and invite you to enjoy it as I do.
