Flowers and Watering Can - acrylic floral still life painting on slate by Pennsylvania Contemporary Artist Pat Koscienski

Flowers and Watering Can
12" x 7"
Acrylic on slate
Sold

This was a first for me...painting on slate.  It was a commission for a friend who hangs this piece outside of her house beneath her name.  The photo shows the slate laying on my studio carpet.  My only concern was how the acrylic paint was going to hold up in cold weather.  I did apply UV varnish to give it protection against fading, however, I would sure hate to see the paint craze when those temperatures drop.  If you have any questions, contact PAT.  If you would like to see more of my paintings, both representational and abstract, please visit my website at:

Fields of Gold - original acrylic plein air landscape painting of hills of sunflowers by Pennsylvania Contemporary Artist Pat Koscienski

Fields of Gold
8" x 10"
Acrylic on canvas

This painting was done plein air near Messiah College in Pennsylvania.  It had rained hard for several days before, and no matter how long we waited for the sun to draw the heads upward, it was not going to happen.  I went back several weeks later to punch in the dark tree & underbrush on the right;  the sunflowers' heads still were not at their grandest.  However, I still liked the contrast of the dark tree with the yellow, rolling hills.  And, who couldn't love that misty blue mountain in the background. 

This painting is one of four of my paintings on exhibit with the SVPAP (Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters) group at Gallery 2318 in Camp Hill, PA.  Exhibit will be open every weekend in October....Saturday, 10 am - 4 pm;  Sunday, noon - 4 pm. 

If in the area, please stop in.  There are 21 artists displaying their plein air paintings..
