"Cross of Hope" by Pennsylvania Daily Painter Pat Koscienski

"Cross of Hope"
10" x 10"
Acrylic
"Cross of Hope" was done using a lot of acrylic medium to sculpt as well as paint this composition...color and texture being the main goal. I felt that the cross that developed from this sculpting, hopefully, reflected some symbolism for us to recognize as a need within each of us. This painting will be exhibited at the Art & Soul Gallery, 900 Market Street, 2nd floor, Suite 13. This is at the West Shore Farmer's Market in Lemoyne, PA. The new owner of Art & Soul, Lyn O'Neal, will have a GRAND RE-OPENING on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2009 from 4:30 TO 7 PM Stop by for some free light refreshments, meet the artists, and enjoy original art works by more than 20 local artists. If interested in purchasing, contact Lyn at 717-761-1270

"Young Mr. & Mrs. Smith" was painted for James Parker's Windows to the Words Art for the November Thanksgiving Challenge.

"Turkey" by Pat Koscienski


"Turkey"
Oil on board
14" x 18"
"Turkey" was painted using a different technique than I was used to. Instead of mixing my linseed oil in my paint, I placed the linseed oil on the part of the turkey I was working on. When I applied my paint, it then "spread" since the paint was thick and the oil caused it to move. Thus giving a feathery look without painting each hair. It gives a very nice look, however, the drying time between applications of the linseed oil became annoying to me, since I tend to paint more quickly. If interested in purchasing, contact Pat at patsfineart@hotmail.com. I do want to wish everyone a Happy & Safe Thanksgiving!

"Peasant Girl" by Pat Koscienski


"Peasant Girl"
30" x 26"
Pastel on canson
SOLD
"Peasant Girl" was painted in Portrait/Figure class at York Art Association in York, PA. Amanda, the vice president of YAA at the time borrowed the costume from York Little Theater and posed for 2 of our classes. Painting portraits and figures from real life can be challenging, but can be quite a learning experience forcing one to see the fine shadows and color of the skin and contours of the underlying bone structure.

"Tryin' To Make a Living" by Pat Koscienski

"Tryin' To Make A Living"
8" x 10"
Acrylic

This painting was done for Karin Jurick's DSFDF (Different Strokes From Different Folks) week 52-54 challenge "Airport Travelers". And, believe me...it was a "challenge". It's not 100% without error, however, I'm glad to have completed it and pleased that I was able to take on yet another subject that I would not have chosen on my own. As with each new challenge in life, learning and growth takes place. And, now I can (virtually) fly off to Halifax, Nova Scotia and paint a landscape there for my Virtual Paintout challenge.

"Coy Koi" by Pat Koscienski


"Coy Koi"
5" x 7"
Acrylic on canvas
"Coy Koi" is one of my paintings that started off as a nonobjective abstract painting. My husband had just put in our pond so we were preoccupied with our Koi everyday. I think this intuitively came out in this painting. I usually put my abstracts on the http://www.dailypaintersabstract.blogspot.com/ , however, I see an almost representational painting in this one, so thought I would post this simultaneously on both blogspots. If you are interested in purchasing, contact me at patsfineart@hotmail.com and please stop and visit my website to see more of my representational and abstract works.

"Ala Van Gogh" by Pat Koscienski


"Ala Van Gogh"
5" x 7"
Acrylic on canvas

"Ala Van Gogh" was initially painted for Michelle Burnette's challenge on Follow the Masters blogspot. It was previously posted, but I made some changes on the part of the field that goes down to the stream. I thought I would post this painting with the initial painting so everyone could compare the change. However, being the novice that I am in the blogging world, I deleted my whole posting when I only wanted to delete just the photo that I posted (I realized the color needed adjusted). Learning keeps taking place, but it sometimes feels like it never ends. And, that can bring in frustration, especially when it becomes time consuming. LOL I'm sure you have all been through it. Sorry, I lost all your wonderful comments, to boot.

"Don't Brush Me Off"
6" x 6"
Acrylic

This painting was done from a photo posted on James Parker's Windows to the Words blogspot. Even thought I did not have it completed for the challenge in September, I just couldn't resist painting this curious kitten. What a delightful little fur ball and doing what cats do best.
