Paintings

Here I would like to share a few of my paintings. Painting is something I enjoy doing in my leisure time. As a student I used to sketch. Later, when I started teaching, I would sketch various book characters as I imagined them. I encouraged my students to do the same. That way we combined art with language activities. Today, as a parent of three, not that I have much time for painting, but whenever an opportunity presents itself I seize it. For me painting, like poetry writing, is not only therapeutic.  It’s a way to express myself creatively.

If you wish to purchase any of my paintings or if you have any questions about my work, you can contact me by email: chubbyreader@gmail.com

The Palette Knife Painting Technique

You can use the palette knife to mix the paint, but you can use it to create some magical bold strokes. Maybe that’s the reason I like painting with the palette knife so much!
My first acrylic painting was painted with the palette knife. (see “The Musicians” under “MY ART” section). I had a set of brushes, of course, but I wanted to try something new, something more challenging, so I decided to paint with the palette knife. (That’s just me. I like challenges.) So, if you want to try something different, try painting using this technique. Just like with everything else: the more you paint, the better you’ll get at it. Take a look at what Dan Scott from Draw Paint Academy has to say about the palette knife painting.

To Frame or Not to Frame

If you purchased a stretched canvas painting you can display it right away, even if the sides of the canvas haven’t been painted.

(To paint the sides or not: Some artists paint them, but others prefer not to. Leaving the edges unpainted suggests that the work can, but doesn’t have to, be framed. Some artists never paint to the edge of the canvas. They even leave an unpainted border around the front of the painting. It all depends on the artist. Personally I don’t like to see a painting where the subject matter has been painted on the sides.
