A Warm Welcome Palette Knife Painting

A Warm Welcome
11 x14
oil on canvas

It's been a while since I posted a new painting, and even longer since I've painted a door! It's not that I wanted to paint and have many ideas lined up, 
but have been focusing on my paleo diet, trying to get my auto immune problems under control. I researched a lot and have read that they have a tendency to progress to other one's, and I don't want that. 
I'm feeling pretty good and have much more energy, 
so I hope it's working. 

For this painting I used a palette knife for the majority of 
it and finished it up with a sharp angled brush for some details. I love the texture you get with the knife. I also tried to keep the colors on the warm side with a few complimentary ones here and there. 
Overall though, I was going for a warm, inviting feel.

What colors do you like to use or decorate with?

Hi Yvonne! Thank you for your nice comments! You should definitely pick up the knife again! It's so much fun!

Hi Jo! Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting ! It means a lot to me:)
I think these colors go with a lot of different decor and want to use them more in my work.

It's lovely, Jennifer. Gosh, could be Santa Fe, Santa Monica, Tuscany or Mexico or the Mediterranean; evokes something soothing and exotic and I love the turquoise/aqua urns at the entrance (what IS it about that color that sings to a lot of us??). Great job as usual.

Thank you Vicki! I wanted it to be "anywhere" so I'm glad you said that. I am so drawn to that color! It might be that it looks like water(?) but whatever it is, I love it!
Have a great day!
