Alix Hallman Travis, “August”, Oil on canvas, 24×48 in., $1750., 2018.  I had recently moved to a new community and so was trying to greet each new season with new eyes.  August brought the sunflowers, large, small, and in-between.  The yellow flowers were everywhere and gorgeous.  The village was ablaze!

I find I like to reflect the shape of a primary figure in the painting with the shape of the painting itself.  The tall, skinny flowers called out to be painted on a tall, narrow canvas.  My application of paint is done with a palette knife.  Pulling the knife quickly over the rough canvas leaves of lot of the toned canvas showing.  I intentionally leave the canvas exposed as a color, value and texture within the painting.

My Bragg Hollow Studio, Rhinebeckright in the middle of the quaint and historical village of Rhinebeck, NY in the picturesque Hudson Valley in NY State.  I am often asked for studio visits by first time visitors who have seen my work somewhere or collectors and friends who have been following my career for some time.  I welcome and enjoy such visits whether they result in a sale or not.  I love sharing my work!
