I toned the canvas with a hot pink to start and then added colors. Initially I was going to have white flowers but in mid-painting, I wanted to make these flowers more peony-like and pink. But I decided to go back to the white flowers because they look so dreamy. The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas are painted hot pink. It will arrive varnished and wired to hang.

Getting to Know Judy

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.
