Artist Judy Mackey says she asked her patrons to help her title this impressionist painting of orange tulips, and she loved the suggestion of Creamsicles. Judy worked with a palette knife to build rich texture and dimension in the scene. The soft yellow band at the edge of the table sets the whole scene in place.
Originally from Japan, Judy Mackey embarked upon her professional artistic career over a decade ago after connecting with a local artist. He taught her how to skillfully wield a palette knife instead of a paintbrush, which gave rise to her own stylistic development. Judy uses this technique to create heavy texture. Her medium of choice is oil paint, with which she enjoys mixing and creating new colors with limited pigments. Her work glows with sweet simplicity in a painterly, impressionistic style.
