Coats Road Creek, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

Coats Road Creek
11x14 oil on canvas

We have been blessed with warm temperatures lately. I am trying to take advantage of this and get out on location to paint. My friend Jill Randall didn't have to drive far to find this scenic creek bed. It was on a road with a small amount of traffic and was a peaceful spot.  This is available for purchase. Email me if you are interested.
Thank you for viewing my art.

Local Terrain, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

Local Terrain
9x12 on canvas

This was painted on location in Granbury. It is on the land of a rural farm and has horses, cows and donkeys.  My goal on this day was to paint cows, but they did not make an appearance. So I scratched that idea and focused on the beautiful landscape. It's been great here with warm temperatures and soft breezes.  
This is available for purchase. Email me for more info.

SOLD - "What Dreams Are Made Of" Print on Canvas by Niki Gulley

JUST SOLD • "What Dreams Are Made Of" ©2017 by Niki Gulley
Four 24" x 24" canvases to form a 48" x 48" quadriptych • artist-embellished print on canvas

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.

Here is the artist-embellished print on canvas, "What Dreams Are Made Of," hanging in its new home!

Canvas Prints now Available:  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 "What Dreams Are Made Of" 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.

Jimmy Longacre_subjective realist landscape paintings_WHAT'S IT ABOUT?

Knowing what I'm trying to accomplish in a painting is primary for guiding every other decision I'll have to make in creating a composition.  If I'm simply beguiled by an attractive "thing" (tree, barn, creek, whatever…), I'll wind up taking dictation from that thing without thinking through how I can compose it so that it will emphasize what I find beautiful about the scene.  That, for me, is the fun and satisfaction in painting.  

Almost without exception, composing requires stopping to think about what I want to say and what I have to work with.  It's rare that I find something that's ready to paint just as it is.  For instance, I may try several ideas for cropping the scene and identifying the focal center.  I may then want to remove unrelated clutter, rearrange what's there for better size and balance relationships, or any number of other things that I feel will give my primary concept emphasis.  I find that my best paintings are about one thing, and one thing only.  That concept must be the star of the show. Everything else plays a supporting role, and a lot of what's there won't even make the cut, when I've answered the question, "What's it about?"

This last week I just wanted to play around with back ground textures and colors against my composition.  To be able to achieve a nice juicy look to the back grounds meanwhile tying them into the painting themselves.  It may look easy but you have to think out each stroke and color before applying to the canvas.

New "Field of Sunshine III" Palette Knife Sunflower and Poppy Field Painting by Niki Gulley

“Field of Sunshine III" ©2017 Niki Gulley
30" x 48" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

Festive blossoms dance in the gentle breeze, filling this field with sweet fragrance.  Voluminous clouds drift by overhead as sun's late light casts its golden glow. This textured oil painting captures a carefree summer day with poppies, sunflowers and wildflowers overflowing the foreground, filling up the landscape with color, texture and joy.
