"Over Yonder"

"Over Yonder" 6x6 oil on bamboo box panel, ©Laura Gable
Painted on the back side of a small bamboo box, this lively painting was done entirely with a palette knife. I rarely paint exclusively with palette knives, so this was a fun experiment. And below is a side view so you can get an idea of the depth of the painting. This expressive small painting, reminiscent of the rolling hillsides in eastern Washington, evokes a memory of travels to distant lands.

Here it is again, shown at an angle so you get a sense of the depth of the panel.
These are actually drawer dividers from BB&Y that I gessoed with black.
