Hi Pam,
So great to visit you blog after being away for several weeks. I love how much strength you capture in you art; sense of the kind of light on a particular time of day; brush strokes, form, temperature etc.

Jill Berry said...

The Live Oak paintings are both superb!

I appreciate your positive pat-on-the-back!

Hi Pam! You are very kind and thanks for the award recognition. Keep an eye on your doorstep!

Pam Holnback said...

Susan, Thanks so much! I am so looking forward to your paintings from AZ!

Jill, You're welcome and Thanks. Sometimes just a few simple, but major strokes say it all.

Tank you Nancy, Sometimes I find that bigger brushes allow for loose brushstrokes as well as saying what you need to say (you can't fuss!

Kelley Carey MacDonald said...

Thank you Pam! I wish I knew how to save the image as a jpeg!
This was one gorgeous sunset. You did a great job making it real for us who were vicariously touring Texas with you!

Kelley, I'll send it on. Thanks.
Thanks Karen, So glad you're back!

Debbi Smith Rourke said...

You are on FIRE with these sunsets. What a wonderful and well appreciated series! Jim and I so enjoy seeing our sunset views every evening - when there are just a few clouds in the sky you get amazing colors and they deepen and change - just glorious.

Melinda said...

Hi, Pam,
It is a beautiful sky! You've really captured the moment. The colors are intense but thoughtful. Well done!

Nancy B. Hartley said...

Pam, Thank you for the reminder about the using s bigger brush! That is an important tip. I love your bold brushstrokes, so confident!

Karen said...

Thanks Pam! You are kind to think of me with the Sunshine award!

And,yes, I agree, the brushwork here is fantastic!!

Marian Fortunati said...

Pam... love those colors!!

Pam Holnback said...

Thanks Debbi and Melinda, We pulled over to the side of the road, my husband commented that no one would believe these colors because they were so intense!

Nancy and Karen, Thank you. Big brushes often work well for small pieces. You just put down the color and don't worry about the details.

Marian, Thank you. The colors in Texas were unbelievable.
