Grazing

An abstract/impressionistic painting of a pair of zebras grazing. Couldn't resist adding colors to what I saw, both in the stripes and the background.

Sort of a fun painting to do - although I spent much time deciding the stripes, their positions, and their values. Even in an abstract I fret about the details!

Acrylic on 12x12 gallery wrapped canvas.

This is one of my favorites of your abstracted subjects, Nancie. This is beautiful! Methinks you would handle that glass challenge beautifully!

Hi Nancie - just found your blog - love your work - the poppies are gorgeous. Thank you for putting palette knife painters on your blogroll.
Happy Painting, Judy

Thanks Sherry & Judy for the kind comments. This was a fun painting to do (even tho I fretted on the stripes a bit).

Sherry - you've got me thinking and I believe I have a design in my mind on the glassware challenge. I only hope I can make it's deadline. Either way, I will post it here. Thanks for the nudge!

Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog. I used acrylic paint and it's size is approximately 10 by 10 inches. I love these zebras - they are some of my favorite animals. The color scheme and style of this piece is outstanding!

Thank you Elizabeth & Chelsea. Glad you liked this one. I think it's one of my favorites also.

These are stunning. Gorgeous. I love the softness of the green and the sharp angles of the black, white, and is that a little blue? I want this painting!

Paula - yes, you are seeing a little blue mixed in on the zebras. Also, a bit of dusty lilac is in there as well (or maybe I should call it a dirty mauve?). I'm so glad you like this one, thank you!
