Shea Baby by Kay Wyne


Shea Baby
24" x 30" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
I was looking at this painting, remembering Shea and what a great dog she was.  I really enjoyed painting this one.  I used wide brushes, plenty of paint, and wanted to get her full of life personality on the canvas.  Currently we have three grand-doggies and I might need to paint one of them.  When the dogs are so active, it is necessary to work off of photographs.  So putting a few photograph sessions is on my to-do list.  Contact Kay Wyne with any questions or comments on this color and fun painting.  Thanks for looking...Kay

Jimmy Longacre_subjective realist landscape paintings_ RAINY DAY RAZZLE DAZZLE


GRAY RAINY DAYS call for something other than the snappy light and dark patterns of a sunny day.  You have to look for contrasts of a different sort, local color patterns, textures, chromatic shifts.  This subject had all that going on.  The truck was a gorgeous pale tourquoise, with shiny,sparkling paint and chrome.  It was fun to set it against the background of dark oaks and to play up the complementary notes of the roadside wildflowers.

Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
Floral Landscape
I am taking this painting off the easel for now...I signed it, but need to live with it and think about it...I am not sure if it is finished.  It might be that I am finished painting on it for now.  I used a palette knife on this panel...all the way.  Lots of texture and built-up paint.  

I started with a rather simple landscape, and wanted the path to fade into the distance.  The wildflowers are scattered throughout the field, and at some points over-lap into the pathway.  I would hope that the viewer can get lost in this painting, enjoying the "unknown" in this painting.  Contact Kay for more info on this painting.  Thanks for looking...Kay

Niki Gulley Now Exhibiting at Davis and Company Fine Art Gallery

"April Rhythms II," Texas Hill Country ©2015 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 36" x 36" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

Just sold through Davis and Company Fine Art Gallery! In April Rhythms II, I wanted to capture the rhythm, color, and density of our Indian Paintbrush, bluebonnets and vibrant wildflowers flowing along the grassy rises and falls of the berms in the Texas Hill Country. Making sure not to over blend my thick strokes so that you could see the marks and feel the energy found in nature, April Rhythms is loaded with texture, color and movement. Repeating patterns, shapes and hues in the blooms, sky and distant mesquite trees unite foreground and background and add to the harmony of spring’s symphony.

Hot Sunflowers by artist Pat Meyer




12x 16 Oil on Linen Panel
contact artist to purchase
Pat@Meyer.net

The red back drop was a main part of this painting.  My goal was to show off all the movement of the sunflowers and just how playful they can be.  For balance and expressive color I added the little blue vase and a variety of colors for flow.

Step by Step Peonies and Seven Days of Giveaways - Nancy Medina Art Classes and Videos


Peony Colored Glasses
by Nancy Medina
14X14
Oil on Deep Gallery Wrap Canvas






In exactly seven days, I'll be heading back to France! With students joining me from Australia, Canada, and across the US, I predict there will be plenty of painting, shopping and eating. I can hardly wait for gelato and croissants and all the yummy dishes Chef will prepare. I'm not a bit concerned about weight gain, after all, the more you weigh, the harder you are to kidnap! To celebrate, I'm giving away an original painting every day this week on my Facebook fan page. This is my biggest giveaway ever, and I want to send a painting to you, so be sure to enter to win!
This evening I'm working the late shift in the Flower Factory. The only staff member helping is AnnieBee, and since she is using my foot as her pillow while she dreams (and snores!), it looks like I will be sitting here for just a bit longer. I'll use that time wisely by sharing Peony Colored Glasses with you step by step ~ Enjoy! Click here for peonies created step by step.
