"Golden Moment" pastel by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

"Golden Moment" ©2012 Niki Gulley
12" x 24" pastel

I painted this pastel at the Dallas Arboretum last fall to capture the gorgeous fall colors, and the mysterious long shadows cast by the sun as it was nearing sunset. I loved the vivid reds and oranges of the foliage, and the way the sun was causing those colors to glow along with the highlights on the path.

For more information on "Golden Moment," please e-mail Niki Gulley.

Stairway Garden, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

Stairway Garden
12x9 oil on ray mar canvas panel

I created this from a photo taken in Le Beaux, France.  This was a charming village that dates back to 6000 BC.  It was our first stop on this incredible journey organized by Niki Gulley and Scott Williams of Art Treks.  We painted, photographed and toured the small villages. There were surprises at every turn. 
This is available for purchase.

Enchanting by Kay Wyne

36" x 36" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Wildflower Landscape Painting
Today is the first day of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge....and yes, I am participating again!  I enjoy a challenge and since I am working on a landscape series, my theme is Wildflower Landscapes.  Be sure to check out all of the work Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days Paint Challenge.  This painting, Enchanting is now finished.  I reworked the clouds and flowers in the back ground.  I softened the sky with more paint and a large dry brush.  The flowers in the foreground are painted with thick, palette knife strokes...lots of texture.  Contact Kay for more information on this painting.  It is drying in the studio.  Thanks, Kay

Some Like It Hot Red Poppies and a French Reconnaissance Mission - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina


Some Like It Hot Red Poppies
by Nancy Medina
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

Your mission should you choose to accept it - *cue Mission Impossible theme music*....travel to Southern France, unplug the Inter-Web thingy, taste test a few pounds of delicieux gelato, feast your eyes on rolling hills, medieval villages, and flowers, and shop at the local markets until you need to acquire a new suitcase for the trip back home for all your new treasures...!

Why am I going to France? I'm doing a bit of advance reconnaissance for our trip there together for my painting workshop next August! My first workshop is full, but I have a few seats left in my Aug. 4-14, 2015 workshop at Le Vieux Couvent. I've saved some creme brulet with your name on it! Read more....

"Autumn Symphony" pastel by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Autumn Symphony” ©2014 Niki Gulley
Pastel • 24” x 36”

This is a quiet, protected creek by our house that I like escaping to when I need a break from city life. On this perfect autumn day, there was the gentlest of breezes rustling the leaves, the vibrant fall foliage was at its peak and the only sounds to be heard came from the trickling of the nearby waterfall and the birds’ sweet melodies.

E-mail me at Niki@NikiGulley.com for more information about "Autumn Symphony."

Warm Hearts Stargazer Lilies and Packing for a Dream Vacation - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina


 Warm Heart Stargazer Lilies
by Nancy Medina
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

Warm Hearts Stargazers is the daily newbie in Flower Mound Studio, where things are in a bit of a floral uproar, petals flying hither and yon, leaves scattered everywhere. The studio director in particular has been quite helpful as I pack for the dream vacation of a lifetime, a trip to Southern France. This is my first trip to France, and the hubby is going with so I'll have a big strong guy to carry all my baubles and trinkets and help scout out the best gelato in town. We were told to "pack light" so I've pretty much narrowed down to the following essentials: Read more...
