Buttercup by Kay Wyne


Buttercup
Contemporary Cow
18" x 24" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
I completed this painting in the studio today.  I just made some minor changes that have an impact on this Buttercup...her colors are so warm and rich.  So buttery....I thought that Buttercup was ideal for her name.  Hi lights and low lights and some random splashes of turquoise and coral punch it up.  For the most part I used a flat wide brush, but in the end, used a small filbert to scrub in some color and abstract lines.  Contact Kay for more information and photos on Buttercup.  Have an artful day.....KMW

New Dallas Skyline Painting by Niki Gulley


"Golden Moment, White Rock Lake" ©2014 Niki Gulley
Textured oil on canvas • 12" x 24"

On a peaceful autumn day last fall, I went out with my camera to White Rock Lake and captured this beautiful sunset behind the Dallas skyline. I liked how the pampas grass and various plants in the foreground were back lit by the setting sun and how the water's surface was shimmering from the low light, adding to a sense of mystery and tranquility in that golden moment.

I remember driving through a farm in the midwest, where the cows, horses and pigs were running loose.  This pig looked as if he was going to walk up to me and start a conversation.  I could tell he had personality, and that is what I painted on the canvas...a pig with attitude!   Piggy Piggy is sold, but I do paint commissions.  Contact Kay for more information on the art posted here.  Thanks, Kay

"Diagonal Shadows" - New White Rock Lake Painting by Niki Gulley

“Diagonal Shadows” White Rock Lake ©2014 Niki Gulley
12” x 24” oil on canvas

Sunset draws lengthening shadows across the grassy waters edge at Sunset Bay, White Rock. The lake shimmers in the evening glow as sky high above fills with deep blues and before you the soft, moody colors stretch out, long lines beckoning you into the complex diagonal composition. Rich texture models the leaves, branches and tree trunk rimmed in the sunset and shadow. Vivid masses of color form the foliage on the opposite bank, fall at its peak. The long cast shadows draw you into the tranquil landscape and the peaceful, dreamy sunset at White Rock Lake.

Marshlands - Original Contemporary Abstract Modern Art Painting by Filomena de Andrade Booth

Marshlands by Filomena Booth Acrylic ~ 22" x 30" 
Marshlands
Acrylic on Fabriano Artistico 140lb watercolor paper
Paper size - 22"x30"
Image size - 18.5"x26"

This original abstract painting on 140lb watercolor paper was created by layering many glazes of acrylic paint over a textured surface.  Scrubbing and scraping out areas of color creates subtle textural passages and reveals "what lays beneath".  This painting was inspired by the marsh landscapes seen near Merritt Island in Florida.

The painting is bordered by 2" of white watercolor paper.   It is ready to be matted and framed or simply "floated"
to show the deckle on all four sides.

 

A Certificate of Authenticity is included.

Best Day by Kay Wyne



Best Day
16" x 20" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Landscape Painting
On a recent trip to Santa Fe, John Wyne and I took the High Road to Taos and drove through a wonderful part of New Mexico.  The long and winding road took us through some amazing countryside.  One of my favorite things to photograph is old churches, missions and cemeteries.  The wildflowers were scattered through the cemetery, which was located next to a country church on top of a hill.  The old stones and graves have character, making it a great subject to paint.  The day after we returned to Dallas from the trip, I had to paint the scene while it was fresh in my mind.
Here it is framed up in a new Randy Higbee Gallery Frame.  The moulding is 3 1/2 inches wide, so total framed piece is 22 1/2" x 26 1/2" with a rubbed grey stain and gold lip. This painting is hanging in the studio...if you have any questions or comments, please contact ME.  Thanks for looking at this blog....have an artful day.  Kay

"Kaleidoscope of Dreams" Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

"Kaleidoscope of Dreams" ©2014 by Niki Gulley
Four 36" x 36" canvases to form a 72" x 72" quadriptych • original textured oil painting

In this painting, I wanted you to feel like a little kid again – laying on the ground and staring up into the treetops without a care in the world. I hope you experience the joy of being surrounded by nature and the beauty in this autumn kaleidoscope of colors.

Canvas Prints now Available:   I have received so many requests that I am now offering canvas prints of "Kaleidoscope of Dreams." Four 24" x 24" canvases are stretched on 3/4 inch stretcher bars with the image continuing around the edges to form a 48" x 48" quadriptych that does not need to be framed, just like the original . I have also added thick paint in some of the leaves and trunks to add even more texture and making each print one of a kind. Finally, I have coated the canvases with a UV varnish to protect the paintings. The canvases can be hung right up next to each other or spread apart by a few inches to come out to a maximum of 53" x 53". I can also make other sizes or stretch Kaleidoscope of Dreams on deep 1 and 1/2 inch stretcher bars for an additional fee. Please contact me at Niki Gulley for more information on the original painting or canvas prints.

One of the canvases in the set of four showing the painting wrapping around the edges so that it can be hung as is without a frame.

My friend, Janet Vance, is a well known horse trainer and breeder - possibly more known for her "long ears" than her horses. Right now Janet is training a "zorse" - a hybrid that resulted in a zebra breeding a horse. Janet reports that it took a while to get him to trust her, but he's a really good boy and has not a mean bone in his body.

Blue Skies Above by Kay Wyne


Blue Skies Above
24" x 36" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Landscape Painting
Blue Skies Above is now one of my favorite paintings in the studio.  I reworked this painting several times, and I worked on the color changes.  The sky is very thick with layers of oil applied with the palette knife and wide brush.  The greens and grey lavenders are earthy.  The sky and horizon line fade in the distance.  Your eye can follow the road as it wanders through the painting.  This painting would look great in a frame, although it can be hung without.  Contact Kay for more info.  Thanks for looking....Kay

Night Shine Stargazer - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina

  Night Shine Stargazer
by Nancy Medina
12X12
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas



I couldn't bear to leave the studio this week without painting these fresh stargazers at least one more time. If there is any color that sings to me lately, it has been fuschia-pink! People ask me if I have a favorite flower, and really for me, it's about a favorite color, and my color moods swing through different spectrums at different times. I'm sure this is all tied to biorhythms, hormones, whether Venus is aligned with Mars, or if I've run out of Dove chocolate, for sure. This weekend we'll be painting yellow tulips, red roses and white hydrangeas in my Spring, Texas workshop. Don't be surprised if I come home with a new vase or three, all those cute little boutiques and gift shops within walking distance of the Gallery will be calling my name!

Mac's Pond
Acrylic and mixed media on Fabriano Artistico 140 lb watercolor paper
Paper size 22.5" x 30"
Image size 18.5" x 26"

This original abstract painting on watercolor paper is inspired by a family friend's pond in the Adirondack mountains.  In the fall, when the first warning of winter turned the leaves into a glorious display of color, the pond mirrored the kaleidoscopic panorama.

 

"Mac's Pond" is heavily textured, revealing subtle undertones that are not visible in this image.
The painting is bordered by 2" of white watercolor paper.   It is ready to be matted and framed or simply "floated" to show the deckle on all four sides.

Texas Bluebonnet Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

SOLD • "Blue Descent," Texas Hill Country ©2014 Niki Gulley
24" x 36" textured oil painting

JUST SOLD! Inspired by a trip to the Texas hill country, I wanted you to feel the warmth and beauty as sun sets over this carpet of bluebonnets and Texas wildflowers. Touched with a hint of mystery from the long shadows being cast and a sense of romanticism from the time of day and the two oaks reaching for one another, this piece is loaded with pigment and thick oil paint. In person, the painting leaps off the canvas and the colors almost dance from all of the texture and energy!

"They's something kind o' harty-like about the atmusfere
When the heat of summer's over and the coolin' fall is here --
Of course we miss the flowers, and the blossums on the trees,
And the mumble of the hummin'-birds and buzzin' of the bees;
But the air's so appetizin', and the landscape through the haze
Of a crisp and sunny morning of the airly autumn days
Is a pictur' that no painter has the colorin' to mock --
When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock."

Dusted Pink Hydrangeas and a Dallas Arboretum Workshop - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina

http://nancymedina.fineartstudioonline.com/workszoom/1584349

 Dusted Pink Hydrangeas
by Nancy Medina
16X20
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas


Dusted Pink Hydrangeas is the newest painting in Flower Mound Studio. I couldn't resist this bucket of fresh flowers at the market yesterday. Yes they're out of season. Yes it's a little late to replant them in my garden (though I shall give it my best try!). Really though, could you walk by these pink flowers at the market and buy spinach or green beans instead? I mean, what do they take us crazy flower folks for, health nuts?? 

My final Dallas Arboretum one-day workshop is coming up on October 25. It's a beautiful time of year to visit the gardens, with their famous 1000-pumpkin display in all its grand glory calling to us outside the classroom windows. The pansies also beckon, and the vanishing pools and koi ponds and rose gardens, too. I hope you'll join me there! Read more about that by clicking this thingy ma bob...

In other news I'm reviewing my newest DVD today - Sunflowers and Strawberries. My favorite fruit, my favorite flower, with a few daisies thrown in to keep you smiling. Coming soon to a DVD player near you! Stay tuned to my art bloggy flower friends for news on when it will be ready for pre-order, plus all the flower news to come!
