Top of the Pecking Order - acrylic ACEO impressionistic rooster painting by Pennsylvania Painter Pat Koscienski

"Top of the Pecking Order"
2.5" x 3.5"
Acrylic on linen paper
This aceo card of a rooster was done for Jennifer Neslund who is the administrative assistant and exhibit coordinator for Carlisle Arts Learning Center (CALC) in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. She will be exhibiting Fred and Fiona, and 2 other paintings of roosters and hens from the middle of March to the middle of April at CALC. Other artists have been painting aceo's and atc's for her to display as a "hen house" or other display she may creatively come up with. I am presently working on a larger version of this fellow, since he looks to be quite a strutter.

Got Milk?, Acrylic palette knife representational cow painting by Pennsylvania Painter Pat Koscienski

 SOLD
"Got Milk?"
8" x 10"
Acrylic on canvas
Palette Knife

This painting was done entirely with a palette knife. I made a sculpting compound using clear gesso and pumice which I used to mix with my paint. The clear gesso worked well, in that it didn't alter the color of the paint. There were some areas that became challenging eg eyes. If you have any questions, or wish to purchase, contact PAT.

Crouching Tiger - Acrylic wildlife representational painting by Pennsylvania Painter Pat Koscienski

"Crouching Tiger"
28" x 22"
Acrylic on canvas

This painting was done from a photograph by Barb Benik for the February challenge on her studio atelier blogspot. I had gotten several photographs of this great cat at the Washington D.C. Zoo many years ago, but none as dramatic as this pose. I did alter the background of her photo. If you have any questons or wish to purchase, contact PAT.

Stoney Creek - Acrylic palette knife impressionistic landscape painting by Pennsylvania Painter Pat Koscienski

Stoney Creek Morning
14" x 11"
Acrylic on board
Palette Knife



This painting was done using a palette knife and acrylic paint with a moulding compound. It was inspired by a photograph I had taken one morning while painting at Stoney Creek in Dauphin, Pa. It was a steep decline from the parking area to the stream, but well worth the view. If you have any questions, or wish to purchase, contact PAT.
