Field Stone Meadows - original acrylic impressionistic landscape painting by Pennsylvania Painter Pat Koscienski

Field Stone Meadows
30" x 24"
Acrylic on canvas
SOLD

This Sunday, April 1, marks the formal opening of the Preserved Lands Exhibit at York Art Association. YAA has partnered with the Farm and Natural Lands Trust of York County, and will be featuring landscape paintings of York County's Preserved Lands by 30 local artists. I was invited to paint Art Glatfelter's Field Stone Meadows Horse Farm. After touring and photographing this beautiful property on a gator driven by Sherri Becker in July, 2011, I chose to paint this scene using a photo as reference. The painting depicts both the roughness of the land and the beauty and softness of its crop.

The reception is from 2:00 to 4:00 on Sunday, April 1, at YAA, 220 S Marshall St, York, PA. Please stop by if you are in the area. The exhibit will be on display until April 22.

If you have any questions, or wish to purchase, contact PAT. 50% of the sale will go to the artist, 25% to YAA, and 25% to the Natural Lands Trust; this applies until April 22.

Kiwi Delight - acrylic palette knife still life painting of a kiwi by Pennsylvania Painter Pat Koscienski

"Kiwi Delight"
8" x 10"
Acrylic on canvas
Palette knife

This painting was done for Lela Stankovic's challenge on Paint and Draw Together Blogspot. It was quite a challenge using just the knife. I used a sculpting compound in my acrylic paint in an attempt to get some of the texture of the kiwi and the juiciness of the flesh. If you have any questions about this painting or wish to purchase, contact PAT.

Early Morning Retreat - Acrylic Impressionistic Landscape Palette Knife Painting by Pennsylvania Painter Pat Koscienski

Early Morning Retreat
14" x 11"
Acrylic on board
Palette Knife
This painting was done using a photograph I had taken when painting on a farm off Wertzville Road in Mechanicsburg, PA. There was a large man-made pond on the farm, but this little pool of water was so much more natural and appealing. I used palette knife and sculpting medium for this painting. If you have any questions, or wish to purchase, contact PAT.
