"Purple Mountains, Amber Waves", original watercolor painting by Karla Nolan

I have always loved the song, "America, The Beautiful" and thought it might be an appropriate gesture for this special week, Thanksgiving and all, to salute this wonderful country in which we live.  I believe that the song was inspired by Pike's Peak here in Colorado and written by Katharine Lee Bates in 1893.

Last Day, Tuscany Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

"Villa with a View" ©2014 Niki Gulley • 10" x 8" Textured oil painting
Day 7, Tuscany Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

On the last day of our Tuscany Art Trek, the morning started out a little drizzly so some of us stayed and painted from inside the villa while others went into town to explore, shop and photograph. The architecture of the farmhouse is so interesting with its 6 inch wood beams, solid wood shutters, stuccoed walls, stone exterior and even the radiator below the window that I wanted to capture some of its charm with part of our view out the window. Luckily for a few minutes the sun tried peeking through the clouds, so I tried to capture some of that warmth in my painting.

While usually in the 70s and 80s when we lead the trips to Tuscany, for some reason this year it got really chilly that afternoon. So turning rain into sunshine, we lit a fire and relaxed with new friends, sharing stories, paintings and photographs from the trip. We capped the night off with an amazing dinner and drifted off to sleep, full, happy and at peace.

"Grapefruit" Original Oil Palette Knife Painting by Hallie Kohn Art

It's cold here in Wisconsin--snow and below zero temperatures already in mid-November. I thought I'd do a little fruit series, but have only felt passionately about painting the pomegranate and this grapefruit so far. I wait anxiously all year for these two fruits to be at their peek. They help make this cold time of year so much more enjoyable!

Winter Warmth Peonies and True Confessions of the Flower Obsessed - Paintings by Nancy Medina


Winter Warmth Peonies
by Nancy Medina
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

True story. The hubby and I were browsing the gourmet cheese aisle at the new Whole Foods near Flower Mound, Texas today. A woman walked by on her cell phone. She had peonies in her basket. I turned to my husband and said in a very, very calm voice: "Honey. They have peonies." He was browsing the olive bar and didn't really hear me. I said in a more serious tone. "HONEY. THEY HAVE PEONIES. I'VE GOT TO GO THE FLOWER SECTION. NOW."  I was very proud about what happened next. Read more....

Daily Painting, Oil, Original, Floral, "Sunny Pansy"

This is a re-post from last spring.  I liked the bright yellow flower against the blue background enough to show it to you again.

I must thank the City of Asheville, North Carolina, for filling their park with these cheerful and sunny pansies this spring.

Purchase here

How could I resist this glorious yellow flower?

The weather in Asheville last week, was gorgeous in the mid 70's, and everything was in bloom. Dogwood ruled as it is seen everywhere you look, but these adorable, bright pansies cannot be beat for vibrant color.

Class Demonstration

Oil on Archival Panel

Golden Halo Sunflowers and Hydrangeas was one of my class demonstrations in San Diego, California, last week, and no sooner was I unpacked than it was time to put on the winter clothes and turn on the foot heaters here in North Texas. Studio Director AnnieBee has also decided it is winter, and spends hours in her new bed snoring near the easel. I've shared a photo on my bloggy today for you, since it's always good to have evidence when you discover your Number One Helper sleeping on the job!

Mountain Painting | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Grandfather Mountain by Carol Schiff | 6x8" Oil

This mountain painting is a view of Grandfather Mountain near Boone NC.  It was a cold and windy day when I ventured out, but it was worth the effort.

Purchase here
99 + shipping
 The view was gorgeous!  Mountains and oceans hold the same fascination for me...they are both ever changing in color and mood and filled with energy and movement.

I have just returned from an Elio Camacho workshop and this piece is a sample of me trying to paint like him!  My goal is better color relationships.....he is a master in that area.

Just a reminder.....today and tomorrow, my paint group, Pieces of Eight, is having our annual Christmas sale at Ralph's Art Supply in Eau Gallie Arts District.  Check out the details here.
