"Maui Beach: Surf and Clouds" by Karla Nolan, unframed miniature palette knife oil painting

My husband and I traveled to Hawaii some years ago and stayed on the island of Maui.  There is just nothing in the world more soothing to me than the pounding of the ocean as the waves crash heading to the shore.  When I painted this miniature, my travel memories kicked in and there I was, lying on the beach once again, blissed out by the incredible sounds.  Ah, gotta love the ocean!  (I am, of course, landlocked in my own paradise, but painting revives the good memories...)

Still Life Teapot, Daily Painting, "Antique French Teapot" by Carol Schiff, 16x16x1.5" Oil

This is not a new painting, but it is my favorite still life teapot painting.  It is a antique French teapot that I found on Etsy.

Purchase here
450 + shipping

The  owner of the Etsy site, Dandeliondecor gave me permission to use her image.  The teapot is no longer available but I am happy to have this painting.

 I was attracted by the wavy lines, the beautiful china roses and the sweet curvy handle.  The painting is soft and subtle, but it catches my eye every day as I walk by it.  Yes, one of the perks of being an artist, is lots or original art on your walls.
Several years ago I did lots of still life teapots and flowers and food items.  I am getting in the mood to return to these subjects.

I hope you enjoy this daily painting today and I hope you will pin it.

"Dancing in the Breeze" Palette Knife Floral Painting by Niki Gulley

"Dancing in the Breeze" ©2015 Niki Gulley
10" x 12" textured oil painting 

I created this painting of purple Clematis on location at the Dallas Arboretum with palette knife and thick oil paint. It was so peaceful in the Poetry Garden, that it seemed like a perfect place to set up my easel. I liked the contrast of the cool purple in the flowers against the warm light of the textured wall behind them. Accentuating the circular design they were forming along with forming curving paint strokes, adds to a feeling of movement and energy, almost as if the petals are dancing in the breeze.
