"Abstracted Wetlands" by Pat Koscienski

"Abstracted Wetlands"
Mixed media
24 x 30
Abstracted Wetlands is a mixed media acrylic painting done on paper. I then glued the piece to a board and framed it in a white frame...no glass or plexiglass needed. This allows the viewer to truly appreciate the texture that is in this piece. Being a plein air painter & often painting at wetlands greatly influenced the creation of this piece. It will be 1 of 20 new abstract paintings that will be showing at 2nd Floor Gallery, 105 S. Market St., Mechanicsburg, PA., during the month of September. I will be sharing a featured artist spot with friend & fellow artist Carolyn Gibboney. There will be a free wine & cheese reception, open to the public on Saturday, September 19 from 7-10 pm. If in the area, stop by, would love to see you. This painting is also exhibited in the September issue of American Art Collector in a full page advertisement for our abstract blog spot http://www.dailypaintersabstract.blogspot.com/ Check it out if you get a chance! Let me know what you think. If interested in purchasing, contact Pat at patsfineart@hotmail.com If interested in purchasing during the month of September, contact Jeffrey S.

"San Francisco Street"

"San Francisco Street"
Acrylic
12" x 6"
"San Francisco Street" was my first challenge done from and posted on the Different Strokes From Different Folks blog spot. It was painted from a photograph posted by Karin Jurick. A lot of angst went into this painting. I've painted from photographs before, but usually when it is used as a reference photo....I've painted at the site, take a photo, and make corrections or punch it up in the studio. This was done from a photo of a location I had never been to. The advantage of this, is that it helped keep me from painting the details that I may have been tempted to otherwise do. Also, it did challenge me to paint a subject I would not have chosen. Growth cannot take place if we don't strive to attain another level. I can't wait for the next challenge.

"Sparkling Water" by Pat Koscienski

"Sparkling Water"
Acrylic on canvas
10" x 10"
"Sparkling Water" was painted plein air at Pinchot State Park. The morning started off a little overcast, but soon turned into a need for the sun umbrella. I wanted to capture the sunlight bouncing off the water and the canoe in an "impressionistic" manner, using small dabs of paint. The acrylic paint dried quickly, but using a wet palette kept the paint workable for a long time with little spritzing needed. If interested in purchasing contact Pat at patsfineart@hotmail.com
