ANTICIPATION AND CONFIDENCE BY ARTIST PAT MEYER

The Ballerinas are readying themselves for the big performance.  Much anticipation is in the air and a little nerves are showing through as the girl fiddles with her hair.  The others feel assured with their abilities and are just gazing around at all the attention they are feeling.  Hope this painting moves you to reflect on what they might be thinking right before they go on stage.

Horse 53 Summer Sun Waterhole a Contemporary Horse Painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Horse 53 Summer Sun Waterhole by Laurie Pace


Horse 53 Summer Sun Waterhole
  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2014

 Size:8 x 10  Oil on Canvas.


We finally hit the 100 degrees last week and there is no escape. Then we had rain and 65 degrees.  This week it is back up in the high 90's again.  This is what prompted this painting...the summer heat. There is only vivid bright shades of blue sky, red eyelids when you close your eyes to the brilliant yellow sun... and a tiny bit of green grass in the shade. Couldn't have captured it any better in this contemporary horse painting. 


And I saw something else under the sun:
In the place of judgment—wickedness was there,
    in the place of justice—wickedness was there.
Ecclesiastes 3:16

12x12 Palette Knife Floral Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

Hydrangeas ©2014 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 12" x 12" textured oil on canvas


Just Sold! I painted these hydrangeas with extremely thick oil paint and palette knife. The resulting canvas is loaded with texture, color and energy! I've painted it on 1 and 1/2 inch deep stretcher bars, with the image continuing around the edges so that it can be hung as is frameless for a contemporary look. 

These hydrangeas look great hung alone to brighten up a little spot, or in a grouping with some of my other 12x12 florals. Hang them horizontally, vertically, on a diagonal or stacked. If interested in seeing companion pieces, please e-mail Niki Gulley for options.

Reflections on the Art Journey - Pocket Full of Dreams Geraniums - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina

Pocket Full of Dreams Geraniums
by Nancy Medina 
20X16
Oil on Archival Panel

My new video





The geranium obsession continues in Flower Mound Studio, as the only flowers blooming well in my garden after all these rains are my pink and red geraniums. I've been home for a few weeks in a row, a rarity in my schedule, and have been thinking a lot about this art journey. I still have those times I get very worried and scared about just being an artist and trying to make ends meet. But I am still glad I left my job as a magazine editor to become a full time artist. One year ago, I was trapped on the corporate treadmill, and said to myself, Life is so very short. I knew I was taking a huge risk and I know every day is a risk, but I just had to go with what my heart and soul were telling me to do - paint and teach. I don't know where this journey ends, but I do know I will never be someone who lays on their deathbed wondering, "what if...." I'll always be glad I took this leap. Even if I do end up living in a cardboard box under the interstate! At least my little cardboard sign asking for chocolate, handouts, and dogfood for the pugs will be really, really pretty with flowers on it. :0) Ha!!


"Breaking Light" Commissioned Contemporary Horse Painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Breaking Light

 Size:30 x 40  Oil on Canvas.
Sold Commissioned Painting


I think I am calling it done. Painted to their favorite music, one of which is one of our family's favorite, John Ford Coley. Will have to cure three or four weeks and it will ship to Houston to its new home. This contemporary horse painting flies south in August. I love painting for clients and truly work hard to make the experience memorable. This painting will come with a hard back book covering the painting as it was created. It is all part of the finishing progress. Contact me if you are interested in a commissioned painting. 


I said to myself, “Come now, I will test you with pleasure to find out what is good.” But that also proved to be meaningless. “Laughter,” I said, “is madness. And what does pleasure accomplish?” Ecclesiastes 2:1
