This is a small acrylic painting 9 x 12 done of my friends mother who was a wonderful oil painter.

This painting was done entirely with painting knives.

I know. Unfortunately, she passed away. But her paintings are wonderful and inspiring. Rhoda

You are really becoming proficient with that knife Rhoda. This is nice and impressionistic with good colours. Like it a lot. What a nice tribute to your friend's Mum.

This is really good. A real impressionist feel.

Thank you all so much for your comments. and yes I did paint this as a tribute to her, but also to celebrate women artists who were incredibly good, yet never sold a piece of their work. I also feel that I know her through painting her at work..Rhoda
