This piece was inspired by the book "Shades of Gray". It was painted with a palette knife, and the details are abstract and full of texture. The painting is on a cradled wood panel with finished natural edges. It comes ready 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.
