Tangerines and Turnips in the Studio

A simple plate and some food....That's all it takes to inspire me...But I get to pick the plate and the cloth and the FOOD...sweet little turnips on Chintz with a dish towel donated by a friend and some gorgeous tangerines on Chinese plate and a piece of sample upholstery fabric given to me by another friend for use in the studio...a great way to spend the morning painting 11x14" both oil on canvas

510 Warren St Gallery Hudson NY KNAPP Opening

510 Warren St Gallery presents   RECENT WORK  by  KATE KNAPP   DECEMBER 2 2016 - January 1 2017   Opening Reception Saturday December 3   2-6pm     ALL WELCOME!
The Buck In The Snow is what I call this painting...The winter scene I painted two years ago when we had constant snow...it got very deep...this is the view from our house looking across the valley...I recently decided to add the deer in the landscape as I felt the composition needed something...so I got a buck to pose for me..(.not an easy task).loved the antlers looking so much like the bare tree branches...can you see the apple he has his eye on in the old apple tree? 24x30" oil on canvas
