Brooke Walker-Knoblich is creating Fine Art Oil Paintings

The first time I painted with oils I knew this is what I was meant to do the rest of my life. Everything about oil paint resonates with me. As a person who relishes corporeal experiences, the olfactory delight of linseed oil and the visual richness of glistening pigments intoxicates me. As an artist who approaches the easel with only a silhouette of an idea, the range of oil paint (from translucent glazes to opaque, juicy passages) inspires the spontaneity and experimentation that is so essential to my creative process. When paint stays wet for several days, anything becomes possible. Brushstrokes can be manipulated, scraped off, or remixed into new colors. In this flexible state, art becomes more present, more capable of capturing the subtle changes of mood and emotion. Oil painting makes me fearless in this knowing. Oil painting brings me closer to myself.

Your pledge to support my art is really a "layaway program" where every dollar pledged goes towards a "future purchase" of an original paintinggiclee printcommissioned workfine art card, or whatever artwork your heart desires.

All monies raised through this Patreon campaign go towards the purchase of materials (paints, canvases, gesso, varnish, brushes, etc.), pay studio rent (including heat/ac, storage, and insurance), supplement jury fees for exhibits/competitions, help with the transportation and crating costs to send art to galleries/museums, and other expenses incurred by running an art business.

I urge you to look at the paintings I was creating just 5 years ago to witness the vertical growth of my  work. Imagine the art I could create (and you could own) with your pledge of monthly support!

Goals
$9 of $500 per month
Attaining this goal would enable me to focus on a collection of large-scale, figurative paintings. I began this new body of work in 2014 with Davenport Landing and Chianti Country. I am now asking for support to complete The Kaiser and several other paintings.
