1487 East of Dynamite Point Plein Air Alla Prima







 I did this yesterday at the Fort Pierce Inlet State park.  It was a beautiful windy day,  about 11 am those clouds in the back were overhead and the wind got very strong.  The water was that color of blue, aqua turquoise, beautiful.   I got rid of all the condos across the inlet.  $300. 

Playing with Paint by Pamela Blaies


10" x 8"
oil

Today I had some fun with paint! I did four small studies with lemons, working loose and fast. I experimented with some different colors today. This painting looks a little different than a lot of my recent work because I substituted Pthalo Blue for Ultramarine Blue and used cool-ish colors for the background. I love this blue! It gives the painting a fresh feeling, full of light. Below is a photo of the toned canvas at the block-in phase. Tomorrow I might try something like this again, but tone it orange instead of neutral.....

Plein Air Painting in Venice with Niki Gulley


"Romantic Passage," Venice ©2013 Niki Gulley
12" x 9" • textured oil painting

We just got back from teaching our latest Painting and Photography Art Trek in Venice during Carnival√© and had the most amazing time! The weather was ideal our first day there, and we found our way to this quiet landing to paint a typical Venetian canal. I liked the way the sunlight reflected across the water's surface, and I really wanted to capture a gondola in that lit space, but since they move so quickly that was no easy task! Luckily around 11am, there was a steady stream of gondolas passing by our location. I found myself painting as quickly as I could while one came into my composition, and if I didn't capture it in time, fortunately another vessel would come into view shortly afterwards, and I was really pleased with the results.

If you'd like to join us on one of our upcoming Art Treks, please let me know. The final registration deadline of March 1st for our Tuscany and Cinque Terre/Lake Como, Italy workshops is quickly approaching!

Or, closer to home I'll be leading a Plein Air Painting Workshop sponsored through the Good Art Company gallery in Fredericksburg, TX, April 5-7, during Texas wildflower season.

Indiana Pink Tulips 13036, Dreama Workshop, Carmel, Indiana by Texas Artist Nancy Standlee

Indiana Pink Tulips 13036
12x12" in Ampersand Gessobord Oil
For Sale on the online gallery HERE

I've flown back into DFW today from  a Dreama Tolle Perry oil workshop at the Renaissance Gallery in Carmel Indiana and the pink tulips were painted on Friday, February 22, the first day of the workshop. A question one of my friends asked before I left, "Why Carmel? It's cold there?" Well, I guess it was an oversight on my part because I signed up during a hot Texas August and IF you've ever tried to get into one of Dreama's workshops you know it's just not that easy as they fill up quickly. There was an opening posted so I took it. It was a great workshop but the Midwest storm followed me there making for a little flight turbulence along the way and I got up Friday morning with about of 1/2" thick ice on my rental car windshield. Fortunately a scraper was included but cold, oh, my. I gingerly drove to the Indiana Art and Design district and the class was held in Kathleen Stevens previously owned Renaissance Fine Art Gallery. Kathleen had a great spot saved for me. There were 19 in the class. 

Dreama's teaching style is geared for student success. I've taken many workshops and her method is a super way for students to learn how she uses the transparent oil colors. Dreama will talk and demo in broken segments of study and it gives us plenty of time to go back to our easels and paint, then regroup for the next session. She continues breaking down this process into easy to grasp portions until by the end of the day each of the 19 students had a very nice painting. 
See some of the group shots below. To see the rest of the paintings go to my blog.

Romantic Reflections by Pamela Blaies


9" x 12"
oil on linen

I'm a little late sharing this one, but my sweetie gave me a dozen beautiful red roses for Valentine's Day. He knows how much I love flowers. I painted three of them scattered on a silver platter, which was a wedding present over 15 years ago. I see lots of symbolism in this painting. Even the reflections of the freshly cut, romantic roses in the slightly tarnished silver platter seem to say things to me.

Blue Jean Bluebonnets by Texas Flower Artist Nancy Medina


Blue Jean Bluebonnets
by Nancy Medina
12X12
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas


 I've been exercising my landscape brushes lately, and the new collection of paintings would not be complete without at least one new bluebonnet, don't you agree? Blue Jean Bluebonnets reminded me so much of one of my favorite pairs of extra soft, extra worn jeans from my teen years, back when pale blue denim was in style and super wide bell bottoms. I've had lots of trips down memory lane lately, staying with mom and helping go through paperwork, favorite books and records, as well as a few terrifying photos of myself with big hair and glitter blue eyeshadow from the 1980s which you'll notice I'm not including here.  Also in the mix was a great deal of birdwatching, and the little feeder attached to mom's kitchen window attracted more than just birds. AnnieBee got up close and personal with a squirrel, as you can see on my art blog today! Take a peek and let me know what you think was going through her head....


New Sunflower series by Niki Gulley

"Sun Salutations II" ©2013 Niki Gulley
12" x 12" textured oil on canvas


I painted these sunflowers with extremely thick paint and palette knife. The resulting canvas is loaded with texture, color and energy! I've painted it on 1 and 1/2 inch deep stretcher bars, with the image continuing around the edges so that it can be hung as is frameless for a contemporary look. 


This sunflower scene looks great hung alone to brighten up a little spot, or in a grouping with some of my sunflower or floral scenes. Hang them horizontally (pictured above), vertically, on a diagonal or stacked. Take a look at nikigulley.com/the-art/textured-oils/ to find complimentary companion pieces.

If interested in more information on pricing and purchasing for this painting, please contact American Fine Art Gallery in Dallas, americanfineart.com.
