Painting a Day – Redwood Cove

October 20th, 2006

7.5″ x 11″ on 140 lb. watercolor paper

Click to bid. Bidding starts at 99 cents for the monthly Nibblefest contest.

What’s Nibblefest you may be wondering? It’s a monthly activity in which the objective is to get the most number of bids from different individuals. That’s why the price starts so incredibly low. So help me out, folks, I’d like to be a contender this time; it will help my visibility and newly-launched store.

You can bid in very small increments and win yourself a nice little original painting. It’s not the number of bids that counts, it’s the number of different unique bidders. I may not do this every month, but I thought I’d try it once in a while just to see what happens. And of course you can bid twice, but your seller name will only count once for the contest.

The monthly NFAC theme is “gnarled trees” so this one seemed to be old and ropy enough to qualify. The location is the Northern California coast, near Humboldt County, where we went several years ago for a video shoot about a food bank.

What else can I say about this? Well, it was painted with only two brushes – a 3/4″ long-handled flat … and a very small thin “rigger” for the little twigs.

  5. I’m not helping the silly nibblefest, but at least I’m boosting the price! It’s really lovely, I’d like to have it hanging here in honor of the California Boy…

  6. Karen,
    Thanks for posting your painting of the tree and coast line of Humboldt County. I was raised there, when to college at HSU, and just returned from a visit to see old friends. You’ve done an excellent job of capturing the area. I see continued growth in your work and it’s impressive.

  7. Well I was thinking about sniping this one. . . but I can’t take the chance of sniping at Kate – LOL! I did bid, so at least I’ve helped you a little with the contest.
    I LOVE this painting – it really does capture the north coast (which was a favorite camping area for us when we lived in northern California).

  8. Brenda, of COURSE you can! GO FOR IT. I’ve already won one of Karen’s gorgeous pieces and I’m willing to share the wealth!*GG*

  9. It’s a wonderful painting, great perspective. Your art is coming on in leaps and bounds (I hestitate in case you think that implies it wasn’t good before! Just that the styles and changes are amazing, you seem to be having a wonderful time!)
