My favorite Italian movie is Pane e Tulipani. It's a beautiful mid-life crisis sort of movie and the English translation is Bread and Tulips. I think that's why I titled this Mamma Mia. I toned the canvas orange first so the orange color peeks through the pastel colors of the background and the peachy tulips. The sides have been left white. The painting comes varnished and ready to hang.
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.
