Marsh Landscape, Palette Knife Painting, COLORS OF THE MARSH 8x8x1.5" oil

The sun is quickly sinking below the horizon and within minutes the colors of the marsh will disappear.

Purchase here
119 + shipping
 My goal here was to suggest the beauty and colors of the marsh in late summer.  I wanted to use plenty of texture and thick paint to do so.

I really love the gallery wrap canvases from "The Edge".  I like the chunky shape of this small 8x8" with the 1.5" depth that gives this small painting more presence.

Thanks for reading my blog today :)

Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Abstract Expressionism, "Southwest Sunset", 8x8x1.5" Oil

As you know, I like to dabble with abstract on occasion.  I seem to paint in spirts....all landscapes, or all flowers, or all seascapes, etc.  This is left over from the last time I had the itch to do an abstract.

Try and try again, I could not accurately photograph the colors in this piece.  It is actually a tad brighter than depicted here.  Don't you hate when that happens?

Trying to show the sides of the canvas in this shot....not inspired, sorry!


Spring Rains Iris Garden - Flower Painting Classes and Workshops by Nancy Medina Art

Spring Rain Irises
Oil on Deep Gallery Wrap Canvas


This morning my iris garden was struggling to regain its footing after the cool rains yesterday. A flock of yellow blossoms had fallen to the earth, so I took up my garden scissors and brought them indoors for a modeling session. My four pug helpers accompanied me on this rhizome reconnaissance mission into the gardens.

I hope you've had some productive moments in your spring garden, with helpers nearby to keep you smiling - tomorrow morning I'm off to teach in New Orleans, one of my favorite places in the whole world - and I'm not just saying that because of the beignets, cher!

 The studio models take a bow - and a dip!

Red Rooster by Kay Wyne

Red Rooster
30" x 30" Oil on Canvas
Framed in a wide gold moulding..ready to hang.
This Red Rooster lives at Heritage Village in Downtown Dallas. Painting partner Sharon Hodges took a great photo of this rooster in a striking pose. This plump rooster has bold brush strokes, and fills the canvas with his black and white feathers. His golden beak, red comb and black and white feathers make this contemporary city rooster interesting. The background was applied with a palette knife, using naples yellow, white and yellow ochre. Please contact ME if you would like to give Red Rooster a new home.  Thanks for looking at this blog.  Kay

Daily Painting, Floral Art, Small Oil Painting, Sunflower Painting, "SunnyFlowers" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil

Don't you just love sun flowers?  What could be unlikable about a giant flower, one you have to look up to?  Sunny, bright and full of energy with their big brown eyes and bobbing heads....they always make me happy.

 I wanted to do  a tribute to them, something free and full of movement.  I worked with my palette knife and tried to pop the color.  I left plenty of texture because I want this painting to be touched.

I enjoy my work in simple black frames.  A black frame is always complimentary, it showcases the painting so well.

Thanks for viewing my art today.

New Indian Paintbrush Palette Knife Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

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

In this painting, 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.

Hung alone or with April Rhythms I shown below, these Texas Wildflowers are sure to lift your spirits and brighten up your home.
