The Magi

The Magi     Oil with Palette Knife   12"x 24"

This is the third in the series of Wise Men.  I wanted to try a Pthalo green background but I feel that something got lost in the way to the Far East.  Maybe the wise men were just tired.

As always, thank you for taking a look.  Here are some other pictures of earlier works that I have framed.  They really take on a very different 'upscale' look!  I never realized how much different paintings look when you frame them.  After a fun trip with a friend to a frame warehouse, I have plenty of frames for some upcoming events.  Score.

Here is a work in progress.  Good beginning.  Maybe I will go back and add some variation in the sky to my Magi.  Going back to rework something is scary business.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.  



  1. I am drawn to texture. Think the single camel and wise man is my fave.

    1. Thank you! I think I agree with you. Textures are always fun with a palette knife!
