Cloud Painting, Sky Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, A Touch of Blue by Carol Schiff, 6x8 Original art

I love to paint the sky, but this is my first daily painting of ONLY sky.

 It was really quite fun as I concentrate more on values than getting really accurate shape.  I like the texture  and will definitely do this little exercise again.

It's nice to have a model that is always available and changes each time you paint it.

What are your favorite things to paint?  I started off with simple still life, went through a flower stage and now find I am doing more landscape than anything else.  My goals this year are many.  I want to paint more larger pieces, more figurative pieces and to add quality giclee' prints to my website.

I hope I can stay on track.  Do you have a plan for where you want to be 12 months from now? I would love to hear about it.

Keep painting and thank you for viewing my blog today.

Texas Bluebonnet Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley - Just Sold!

"Spring Forth," Texas Hill Country ©2015 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 24" x 24"" textured oil painting on gallery wrap canvas

Just sold through the I wanted this Texas wildflower painting to be filled with color and joy! Using thick oil paint and palette knives, I arranged the bluebonnets and winecups diagnonally to create an energy and movement, keeping your eye traveling from blossom to blossom. Choosing a vivid gold background to add warmth and contrast to the scene, also illumintes the petals and grasses from behind causing them to glow.

Lady Banks Out Back by Ann McCann 18 X 24" Oil

Lady Banks Out Back © Ann McCann 2015

I planted this Lady Banks rose over 20 years ago.  It blooms all over my ancient pecan tree every spring.  It is quite a golden sight. It doesn't last long, so I captured the bloom in a large painting.

Small Seascape | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Morning Light by Carol Schiff | 8x10 Original Oil | SOLD

I have been spending so much time in the Blue Ridge Mountains, my trips to the beaches have suffered.  Time to roll out of bed before the sun, grapb a cup of coffee and go for a short drive to the sea.

Just as I arrive, the sun starts it's slow climb above the horizon.  I have forgotten how peaceful and beautiful it is on the beach at this time of day.  Way down the beach, I can see a fisherman, but other than him we are alone with the birds who are looking for breakfast.

It is so enjoyable here, cool, serene.....I feel refreshed and ready to start my day.

Do you have a happy place too?

This painting was commissioned by a client who saw a similar work on my Etsy site.  The piece she wanted was already sold.  I was happy to do a similar painting in the size she desired.

"Flying to The Moon" by Karla Nolan, palette knife oil painting on gallery wrapped canvas

Some more lunar fun.  This is a sizeable painting, perfect for over that sofa that needs freshening.  And who says a moon can't be pink?  Hints of waterfalls, obvious mountains, a bit more rugged terrain maybe?  Drifty atmosphere in the sky....and so on.
