I’m Jerry James . I have been painting for about 20 years. Almost exclusively with the palette knife. I am enamored by the sensuous quality of oil paint straight from the tube and the sometimes fascinating way it behaves when applied with a palette knife. The paintings typically range in size from 4 x 6 to 7 x 9 inches. They are done in a single session on Masonite panels. ..Note, this blog is out of date...see my website under Links.
