PALETTE KNIFE MINIATURE BY TOM BROWN


"THE RED MAILBOX"
4x4 INCH ORIGINAL PALETTE KNIFE
OIL PAINTING BY TOM BROWN


I enjoy the nearly abstract quality of small palette knife paintings like this. Painting with a knife prohibits excessive detail. It forces an artist to reduce the subject to its essence.

Yet a painting even this small can hold surprises. Like the red mailbox at the side of the road. And the power lines slicing through the trees. (Click the image for a larger view.)

I painted this purely for self-indulgence, and I hope you find it interesting too. Email if you'd like to own this little jewel at a very affordable price. tombrownstudio@cox.net

Have a refreshing day.
