Memories and Reflections by Pamela Blaies

11" x 14"
oil on canvas

I spent the weekend at a high school reunion. It was fun catching up with some old friends and I was able to spend some time with my mom, too. I knew I wouldn't have much time for painting before I left for the weekend, so I put together a composition for a smaller painting. This one lent itself to some fun scumbling texture. I noticed the way the orange-half reflected onto the blade of the knife and this little detail is what made me decide to leave the knife in the composition.

Original oil painting "Windswept Dancer" by Karen Tarlton modern impressionism

Windswept Dancer

"Dance like nobody's watching"

Painting for me is quite a passion and I enjoy to paint from inspirational music, experiences, and travels. Every so often people inspire me too!
I was listening to some of my favorite classical and before I could stop myself she started to dance on the canvas.
Hope you enjoy!

Lake Como Sailing by Karen Tarlton Original oil painting impressionism

Lake Como Sailing
Inspired by our trip to Italy last summer, I was awestruck by the beauty of Italy and this amazing lake. Seeing this brilliant blue water, with its reflective villas and boats in the sun, just made me feel happy and I wanted you to experience that joy, too. In person “Lake Como Sailing” practically leaps off the canvas with its vibrant palette knife strokes and extremely thick three-dimensional paint.
"I see my path, but I don't know where it leads.  Not knowing where I'm going is what inspires me to travel it."

Studio Painting in the Summer by Pamela Blaies

20" x 16"

Painting in the studio is perfect when the weather outside is just too hot. I brought in some things from my garden to put this still life together. The color combination is so fresh.

Here is a photo of the work in progress.

Daily Painting 1440 Beach Dreams Indian River Oil Painting

This is the view down on the river bank, the flowers are from the mother of thousands plants.  There are sea grapes behind them.    I enjoyed painting this, it was one of those paintings that gave me no troubles, just sort of fell together.

I have had a number of people asking me lately if I do commissions, I am happy to, its nice sometimes for me to have the decision of what to paint taken away from me. 

Also in the fall, when the weather is cooler,  I will be looking for some new places to paint in the Fort Pierce area, I need some new inspirations.  Either for just myself or for my painting group; The Plein Air Painters of the Treasure Coast.  If you have a pretty yard, I would love to paint there!

 To purchase just press the little Paypal button below. 

 The painting is 12 x 16 inches, oil on masonite. <!-- NODP begin dailypainters html template 231773 --><form style='margin-top:10px;margin-bottom:10px;' action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post" target="_blank"><input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick"/><input type="hidden" name="business" value="lorartbus@aol.com"/><input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Daily Painting 1440 Beach Dreams Indian River Oil Painting"/><input type="hidden" name="item_number" value="Daily Painting 1440 Beach Dreams Indian River Oil Painting 527_520_231773" /><input type="hidden" name="invoice" value="527_520_231773"><input type="hidden" name="amount" value="500" /><input type="hidden" name="shipping" value="0"/><input type="hidden" name="no_shipping" value="0"><input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD"/><input type="hidden" name="lc" value="US"/><input type="hidden" name="bn" value="PP-BuyNowBF"/><input style='margin-top:5px;margin-right:10px;' type="image" width="62" height="31" src="http://www.dailypainters.com/images/paypal_button.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="Make payments with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure!" align='left'><div>Buy this painting on PayPal</div><div>Price: $500 USD</div><div>Or, <a href="mailto:lorartbus@aol.com">send me an email</a></div></form><!-- end dailypainters html template 231773 -->

Summer Flowers by Pamela Blaies

20" x 16"
oil on canvas

Flowers, flowers, flowers. Love 'em! My hydrangeas have been so georgeous this year and I've used them in several of my most recent paintings. I love them in all colors, but especially when they begin to fade in the summer. The subtle colors of these hydrangeas give a beautiful background for the bright red verbena and a couple of bosc pears.

Commissioned Fall Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

"Where Paths Meet" ©2012 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 36" x 48" textured oil painting

Just delivered.  One of my new collectors asked me to create a painting for his wife based on one of her photos of a forest preserve in the Chicago area. I was excited to paint this custom piece for them since I've always loved tree scenes. I liked how the distinct curving lines along the path and rickety fence lead you deep into the woods. Playing with autumn golds and oranges contrasted against intense blues and purples in the shadows, I created energetic strokes with my palette knife to create web of texture in the distant tangled branches and dense falling leaves in the foreground. The final painting is full of movement, color and depth and was exactly what my new collectors were looking for!

Its oil on masonite, 12 x 16 inches.  I didn't have an idea of what to paint today, I have been watching a schefflera flower so I went outside for a closer look and on the way back in saw my ixoras so I decided to paint them instead.  Its almost all knife and has really nice textures.

I guess I'll do the schefflera another day.  $500.

Textured Birch Tree Paintings by Niki Gulley

"Autumn Gems" ©2012 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 36" x 48" textured mixed media on wrap around canvas

Just Sold!  Shimmering colors of autumn: Birch and Oak trees quiver, their light graceful leaves tremble and quake, silver and gold, scarlet and tangerine, with each light breeze. There is the quiet energy of change coming and vibrant color charges the woods. Crisp fall mountain air, a band of slender straight trunks cut bright strokes of white against a dazzling tumble of amber and crimson. Staccato strokes and shimmering hues add to the feeling of change in the air and suggest the wind whistling through the foliage.

If you are in Ann Arbor, MI this weekend, please stop by my booth at the largest art show in the country to see more of my textured birch and aspen tree paintings.
