BECKY JOY plein air quick draw oil landscape painting


Arches 10 x 8 oil landscape $200. Click here to bid
This is one of my paintings from the Sedona Plein Air Invitational. I didn't have the values quite deep enough, but I loved the colors and composition. So, I repainted some of this one today. This was painted during the quick draw at Tlaquepaque, a unique shopping area. It has the feel of old Mexican buildings. There are so many things to paint in this area.

I took off during the middle of the day to grocery shop, ride my bike, etc. By the time I finished the painting it was too dark to photograph. I will rephotograph it in the morning and replace the photo. The colors are wonderful in this painting.

Talk to you all tomorrow.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN FROM TOM BROWN



I couldn’t resist; I love painting pumpkins. This morning I decided to stay in the studio and paint this 6x6 inch pair of pumpkins just for fun. It will add a nice touch to the walls today and through Thanksgiving.

Thanks for looking, Tom Brown

I hope you’ll take a look at my eBay auctions too:

Poppy Painting by Niki Gulley at the Dutch Art Gallery


“Bursting with Color” ©2011 Niki Gulley
Two 24” x 24” textured oil paintings on canvas to form a 24” x 48” diptych

I love it when we are driving leisurely through the countryside and we come across a gorgeous field of wildflowers. The sudden burst of color thrills your senses! Playing with color and texture, I feel like this poppy painting radiates with energy and captures the joy you feel on one of the first beautiful days of spring.

With this series, you can purchase either the left or the right painting to hang alone or display both side by side to form a panorama diptych.

E-mail Niki Gulley for more information on her textured floral paintings.

To see this poppy painting, visit the upcoming "Spirit of Texas" art show at
at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, TX, running Nov. 4th through Dec. 31st, where it will be on display. dutchartusa.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=390

Truck plein air oil landscape painting by BECKY JOY


Taos, NM truck, plein air oil, 6x8, $75. Click here to bid.
I painted this a while back when I was traveling the high road between Taos and Santa Fe. I've always been a sucker for antique autos. I love the history and the imagination that goes with it. Who drove the truck, where did they live, what kind of lives. You get the picture.

I just got back home last night after being in Sedona for the plein air invitational. I worked hard from dawn to sunset and then some. Almost every day I was setting up before the sun rose, then painted all day until the sun set. I even painted at night at Tlaquepaque. The show went well, I sold some and then took some new paintings over to Windrush Gallery in Sedona. I caught up with some old friends and met plenty of new ones. I had a great time and felt that I learned a lot.

Kevin MacPherson gave a lecture about his pond series that was wonderful. His whole series was on exhibition at the Sedona Arts Center. It was wonderful to see in its entirety. I had seen his book before, but of course, the real deal always surpasses the photos.

Today was some catching up with office work and tomorrow some more.

Talk to you later.

At the River - PENNY OTWELL

I spent the day in Yosemite Valley, painting with some great friends who love to paint the fall color and came up with this very juicy oil painting done with a palette knife.  The air was light and breezy, and the cottonwood trees were dropping their yellow leaves.  I'm thinking of a studio version done from this field study.  What a great day to paint.  12 x 16, oil on linen, 2011.   See www.pennyotwell.com

WHITE DRESSAGE STALLION in PALETTE KNIFE by OLGA WAGNER

I had another 16x20 canvas that was ready to..Actually, it was a failed painting from few months ago, that made for a perfect surface to work on using palette knives. The hardest part of this painting was deciding on the color combo for the background. Originally, I was going for something with more drama, but in the end I decided on this eye pleasing combo.

White Rock Lake oil painting by Niki Gulley






9" x 12" oil painting by Niki Gulley at White Rock Lake

I painted this small oil painting at White Rock Lake earlier this week, getting ready for my Plein Air Workshop this weekend. It was a perfect morning – blue skies and a gentle breeze, with an ideal temperature. I was attracted to the multi-colored sailboats and the interesting pattern they formed. With so many boats, I sketched out my composition and then I had to paint very quickly before the light changed – a fun challenge and an enjoyable, peaceful morning.

"better days" - A Palette Knife Painting by Dottie T Leatherwood

better days
11" x 14" oil on panel
©2011 DottieLeatherwood
-------------------------------------
Earlier this summer while driving through the country, I came upon an abandoned farm. The classic farmhouse with a big front porch and lots of great outbuildings. A beautiful old place...as if the owners had just picked up and left one day and never returned. Nature was slowly taking over and the pasture and buildings were overrun with vines and all manner of plants. The buildings were breaking down and caving in and the plants on the ground were reaching for the sky with wild abandon. Somehow all that worked together to made it an even more lovely scene.

Ballerina in the Big City by Pamela Blaies

16" x 20"
Oil on Canvas

I came across another vintage ballerina photo.  I thought I would share the picture to show how I use inspiration photos.  There are lots of things I loved about the photo, but there were a few things that needed to change to make for a nice painting.  Besides adding tons of color, I decided to change her hair and make the ballerina a little younger to give more of a modern feel.  I also placed her closer to the edge of the canvas, made the windows wider and turned her head slightly.  These things really helped the composition and gave it more of a story with her gazing out at the city.  Ballerinas are fun to paint!

"Fall on Hart Prairie" by Kathryn Willis

"Fall on Hart Prairie", 12x16" oil on panel, by Kathryn Willis

I'm so glad I got out to paint the aspens last week, because this week they'll all be gone.

Today, there is supposed to be snow on the San Francisco Peaks where this was painted. One of my most important intentions in painting is to interpret my experience in a place, so that I may share some idea of what draws me to a particular place in a particular moment. Hopefully, I have done that.

White Rock Lake painting with Niki Gulley


"Bridge to Tomorrow" ©2011 Niki Gulley
12" x 24" textured oil painting

On a peaceful autumn day last fall, I went out to White Rock Lake and captured this beautiful sunset behind the Dallas skyline. I liked the intricacy of the bridge and how it crossed through the composition, connecting the left and the right sides. The sunlight was peaking through the ironwork and various plants in the foreground were back lit, while the water's surface was shimmering from the low light, spreading vivid colors in all directions. A perfect ending to the day!

Morning, Along The Path; Norfolk Botanical Gardens by Roxanne Steed



9"x12" oil on Belgian linen mounted on archival panel

Here's the 3rd painting I completed at the paint-out last week, on Friday morning at the Norfolk Botanical Garden. During early morning, this little gazebo structure is brilliantly lit by the sun, and boy do the shadows seem to change quickly this time of year. I've gotten in the habit of marking in the shadow shapes first, and anything else interesting. If you get those BIG shapes put down first, everything else seems to fall into place!

This was a foggy morning in Santa Cruz. I started out with a brush and ended with the palette knife.

Mornin' Sunshine by Pamela Blaies

24" x 36"
Oil on Canvas

Pretty much every day I drive down Glade Road, in my little suburban city.  I pass this old tree growing beside a broken-down fence.  The other morning, I had to take my daughter to school because she missed the bus.  On my way back home, the dazzling early morning light caught my eye as it shined through the tree.  I admit I was probably not very cautious as my car careened into the parking lot across the street.  But all turned out well and I was able to capture this beautiful scene.

Penny Otwell Palette Knife Work

Western Azealea, Yosemite Valley, acrylic on canvas, 20x20"

I did this painting during the spring here in Yosemite and right before the buds were in full bloom.  What I like about these fragrant flowers is their peachy color.  In full bloom, they look more white.  They smell like Honeysuckle.

Abstract of Pebble Beach Trail by Deborah Harold

While spending time in Carmel this weekend I was able to get hundreds of shots of this fabulous place.
The golf course sits right at the edge of the Pacific Ocean. We lucked out with the weather, and it was a perfect morning to capture the beauty of this amazing place. The little structure was basking in the sun and I thought it a lovely thing to paint. This is just the beginning on my love affair with this most beautiful area.

Butterfly Garden at Norfolk Botanical Gardens by Roxanne Steed



12"x12" oil on gessoed masonite artboard

This is the second painting I did last Thursday during the 'Out & About Norfolk' plein air event. I had a quick burger lunch and went back to the Norfolk Botanical Garden since I still had several hours of daylight...and admission still paid for the day! I've spent so much time at these gardens over the years. It is quite a treat for me to return and see what's blooming through the seasons, and changes that have been made over the years.

I did find out on Saturday evening at the show reception, that I had been awarded 2nd Place- with a $750 Memorial Award for the "Japanese Garden" painting! I am so thrilled over this - my head is still swimming over it! The show organizer, Karen Kinser has worked so hard to build this show over the last five years! She has done an amazing job! There's some serious award money, a gorgeous venue along the river at Waterside in Norfolk for the reception, I can go on and on....I plan on submitting work for next year's show!!

White House Daily oil painting by BECKY JOY

"The White House" 5x7 oil landscape $75. Click here to bid.
I painted this from a photo taken in Southern Arizona. I like quirkly, ramshackle buildings. I thought the garbage can added to the sense of scruffiness. I used both a palette knife and brush on this painting. Some paintings I feel lend themselves to more work with the palette knife. This was one of those.
Online workshops starting Nov 7, 4 week sessions $150.
