Logan’s Palette Knife

20171026_052527.jpgI am so proud of Logan.  Just look at this amazing painting she just completed using ONLY a palette knife.  AWESOME!!!  I can’t believe she is a senior this year and will be leaving us soon to go off to college.  She’s been painting with me since she was about 8.  I often tell people what a terrific student she has been.  She is one of the best color mixers I know.  Did I mention I am proud of Logan???!!!!
