A Free Tulip Video and Framed in Violet White Roses - Flower Painting Classes and Workshops by Nancy Medina Art

Framed in Violet White Roses
by Nancy Medina
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

Framed in Violet White roses celebrates the push and pull of warm and cool violets, and how it can be just so much fun to let your hair down and play with color. Today the pugs and I are celebrating in the studio the release of my full-length, free tulip video. Just a flower footnote for all those who watch, unlike my professional DVDs, Pink Pirouette Tulip on video was just an amateur production done by yours truly, with her puggy assistants, so the sound is not high quality. I beg your forgiveness for that, though, if you listen closely, as a consolation prize, you might just hear snoring, snorting, barking and other assorted puggy noises! Stay tuned to the end for some fun out-takes involving the helpers!

I hope you enjoy this little tulip treat, I created it for you as a thanks for walking with me on this flower-strewn path of my first year as a full-time artist, and also to celebrate hitting 14,000 Facebook fans. I thank you from the bottom of my heart - with flowers - and pug kisses, too!

The studio models take a bow!

Oh Happy Day! by Kay Wyne

Oh Happy Day!
18" x 36" Oil on Heavy Duty Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Still Life Painting
My favorite canvas shape is the square, but I really like the canvas I picked for this horizontal still life.  The vase of flowers is intentionally off-center.  The bouquet fills the canvas and is spilling over the edges, implying that the bouquet is full and over-flowing.  I used the palette knife on most of this painting.  The canvas has plenty of texture color.  I focused on lavenders and greens and greys and mixed piles and piles of oils when I painted this.  This painting is for sale, and is hanging at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas for the "Local Color" exhibit.  It will be up for the next week, then a new show, "It's A Small World" begins June 6th.  Thanks for looking at this blog....Kay

New "Golden Aura II" Palette Knife Birch Painting by Niki Gulley

"Golden Aura II" ©2015 Niki Gulley
36" x 48" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

Painted with extremely thick oil paint and palette knives so that this canvas is loaded with texture and bursting with color, flickering autumn leaves seem to almost dance in a gentle breeze. I wanted this scene to be filled with movement and energy, so I incorporated a lot of diagonal and curving shapes in the design to suggest that feeling. While combining short staccato strokes along with long sweeping passes with my palette knives also increase that sense of motion. I hope you, too, can feel the excitement of walking through the woods on a beautiful fall day, letting your cares slip away and your spirit being invigorated.

Big Sky by Kay Wyne

Big Sky
36" x 36" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Landscape Painting
This painting is calm and peaceful.  The clouds are drifting off at a slow pace, and it makes you look and try to find images in the sky.  I want the viewer to imagine standing in a large and quiet wide open field with the clouds moving, making interesting images.  This painting is for sale, so if you have any comments or questions, please contact ME.  This painting looks very good without a frame...although it is an option.  Thanks for looking at this blog, KAY

Rattled by Kay Wyne

24" x 24" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Abstract Painting
I remember the day that I painted this contemporary abstract.  As I was starting this painting in the studio when I received a very annoying telephone call from a gallery owner.  The interruption shifted my mood and the plans I had for the canvas.  I was derailed.  The color palette that I used and the bold strokes tell that on the canvas.  I used oil sticks and oil paints with brushes and a palette knife to indicate the frustration and energy I had that day.  This painting is at the studio, and would love to move to a new home.  Contact Kay for more info.  Thanks for looking at this blog...Kay

"Reaching for the Heavens" Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

“Reaching for the Heavens” ©2015 Niki Gulley
48" x 36” textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

In this painting, I wanted you to you to experience the amusement of looking up into the treetops – just like you did when you were a kid. Lying on the ground, not a care in the world, you gaze in wonderment as the clouds drift by. Choosing warm yellows and reds while utilizing thick chunky staccato strokes, add to that childlike whimsy and I hope you are transported back to a happy, carefree time and place.

For more information on my textured palette knife birch and aspen tree oil paintings, please e-mail Niki Gulley.

Reflections by artist Pat Meyer

Ballerina's are always so elegant and graceful but my girl is reflecting on how she performed tonight. The glow of lights from the stage abound and she is remembering the sheer joy of dancing for the crowds.  Now that she is reflecting I tried to captured that moment.
