Jimmy Longacre_subjective realist landscape paintings_…EN PLEIN AIR TEXAS INAUGURAL JURIED COMPETITION

PACKING TO LEAVE tomorrow for the Inaugural National Juried Plein Air Competition of En Plein Air Texas, in San Angelo. We will paint through next week in various locations, with the exhibit and awards presentation next Saturday. The artists are invited to bring 8 pieces other than the two we enter for judging in the competition. It's a bit humbling to be competing with such a select group of plein air painters, but I'm just going to do my best. I look forward to meeting and painting with them all.

Frayssinet Sunset - French Landscapes and Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina


Frayssinet Sunset
by Nancy Medina
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

Frayssinet Sunset is the newest daily in Flower Mound Studio, based on my recent visit to Southern France. I'll be teaching in this charming village next August, and can hardly wait to return. Tomorrow we'll be filming a new video in North Texas, so I did a little flower shopping today with Howard Pee Pugpants at the nursery here in Flower Mound. I hardly had time to put the pugmobile in park when the first crowd of adoring fans stepped up to greet Mister Howard, with pats and exclamations of his absolute handsomeness. Howard loves an audience and all the attention that comes with it, and gave several slobbery autographs before helping me pick out just the right blossoms to paint on camera tomorrow. What on earth would I do without my studio helpers to guide me in the right direction each day?

This painting is painted and has modeling paste to make the big cypress in the front raised from the canvas. It has grooves and raised textures along the trunk of the tree.  I must have painted that tree at least four times.   I framed this a a barnyard wood frame and the whole thing is very heavy.

Best Day by Kay Wyne

Best Day
16" x 20" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Landscape Painting
On a recent trip to Santa Fe, John Wyne and I took the High Road to Taos and drove through a wonderful part of New Mexico.  The long and winding road took us through some amazing countryside.  One of my favorite things to photograph is old churches, missions and cemeteries.  The wildflowers were scattered through the cemetery, which was located next to a country church on top of a hill.  The old stones and graves have character, making it a great subject to paint.  The day after we returned to Dallas from the trip, I had to paint the scene while it was fresh in my mind.
Here it is framed up in a new Randy Higbee Gallery Frame.  The moulding is 3 1/2 inches wide, so total framed piece is 22 1/2" x 26 1/2" with a rubbed grey stain and gold lip. This painting is hanging in the studio...if you have any questions or comments, please contact ME.  Thanks for looking at this blog....have an artful day.  Kay

Blue Rain Bluebonnets - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina


Blue Rain Bluebonnets
by Nancy Medina
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

Blue Rain Bluebonnets is a new commission under construction in Flower Mound Studio tonight. I was asked to really punch up some color in this painting, so I hope the new owner likes bright violets and blues! This weekend I head to the Dallas Arboretum for my final workshop of the year in the gardens, one of my friends who works there has taken the plunge and is going to take the workshop as a bran new painter. I work with new painters step by step, showing them how to set up their palettes and use their tools, so I'm excited to introduce her to the world of bright color in oils. There are only 2 seats left, and I've saved a Dallas Arboretum pumpkin with your name on it mon cher!  You are cordially invited to join me there Saturday for my only one-day workshop! Read more...

"Kaleidoscope of Dreams" Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

"Kaleidoscope of Dreams" ©2014 by Niki Gulley
Four 36" x 36" canvases to form a 72" x 72" quadriptych • original textured oil painting

In this painting, I wanted you to feel like a little kid again – laying on the ground and staring up into the treetops without a care in the world. I hope you experience the joy of being surrounded by nature and the beauty in this autumn kaleidoscope of colors.

Canvas Prints now Available:   I have received so many requests that I am now offering canvas prints of "Kaleidoscope of Dreams." Four 24" x 24" canvases are stretched on 3/4 inch stretcher bars with the image continuing around the edges to form a 48" x 48" quadriptych that does not need to be framed, just like the original . I have also added thick paint in some of the leaves and trunks to add even more texture and making each print one of a kind. Finally, I have coated the canvases with a UV varnish to protect the paintings. The canvases can be hung right up next to each other or spread apart by a few inches to come out to a maximum of 53" x 53". I can also make other sizes or stretch Kaleidoscope of Dreams on deep 1 and 1/2 inch stretcher bars for an additional fee. Please contact me at Niki Gulley for more information on the original painting or canvas prints.

One of the canvases in the set of four showing the painting wrapping around the edges so that it can be hung as is without a frame.
