Original Contemporary Modern Art Abstract Paintings by Filomena de Andrade Booth

Nature's Bounty
24"x24"x1.5"
Acrylic on canvas

 

There's something magical that happens when an artist begins to paint.  Even our best intentions get side tracked and instead of following one path, we end up somewhere else.  That's what happens when I paint intuitively.  My intention was to paint an abstract but the painting was directing me elsewhere.  I had almost decided to give up and just cover the canvas with gesso, but something was telling me to keep going...and so I did.  As I continued to layer color on top of color, this floral began to emerge.  Sometimes it's just best not to fight it!

Nature's Bounty measures 24"x24".  This colorfully textured canvas is stretched on 1.5" bars.  The sides are painted in micacous iron oxide, a gray/black color.  It does not need to be framed.  It is signed on the side, dated and signed on the back.  A layer of acrylic varnish has been applied to protect the beauty of this work.  A Certificate of Authenticity is included.

New "Autumn Reflections" Palette Knife Oil Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

"Autumn Reflections" ©2015 Niki Gulley
18" x 48" textured oil painting on gallery wrap canvas

In Autumn Reflections, I wanted to give you the feeling of a beautiful, peaceful retreat on a colorful autumn day. To create that feeling of being immersed in nature, I chose this long panorama format so that the sanctuary is completely engulfed in fall foliage, a perfect escape from bustling city life. Loaded with uplifting color, still waters suggest a calming effect. One small ripple in the lake's distance lets you know that some ducks just swam by and you are surrounded by wildlife, not a care in the world.

If you're in the Dallas area this coming weekend and you'd like to see Autumn Reflections and more of my palette knife paintings in person, please stop by my booth at the Cottonwood Art Festival.

"Creating Memories" Palette Knife Oil Painting of Venice, Italy by Niki Gulley


"Creating Memories," Venice ©2015 Niki Gulley
24" x 36" • textured oil painting

Inspired from our first trip to Italy, I fell in love with everything about Venice. The city feels preserved in time with all transportation happening on water versus roads. The architecture, art, history, and people are all fascinating, the food and wine delicious, and it was such a romantic place to visit. So in this painting, I captured a lone gondola to convey that feeling of lazily drifting along with your loved one down this brick canal filled with history and future memories.

If you're in the Dallas area this coming weekend and you'd like to see Creating Memories and more of my palette knife paintings in person, please stop by my booth at the Cottonwood Art Festival.

Afternoon Delight by Kay Wyne


Afternoon Delight
12" x 12" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Floral Landscape
I was back in the studio yesterday, and got my palette knife out and created this painting.  The paint is layered on the panel, giving it texture and depth.  I moved the paint around quite a bit once it was on the panel.  The horizon line was changed numerous times...I wanted it to fade into the background, and needed to mix my oils over and over to get a hazy far-away look. I hope the viewer will feel good looking at this painting, as if he/she is standing in the field on a beautiful, delightful afternoon.  Thanks for looking at this painting.....contact Kay for more info on this painting.  KMW

My friend gave it the title

They loved the story it told.
I do too!

New Lavender Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

"Waves of Lavender" ©2015 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 24" x 12" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

Just Sold through the Good Art Company Gallery! The lavender fields in Provence are incredible – perfectly manicured rows and rows of an explosion of violet as far as the eye can see. I wanted to try something different in this painting, arranging the purple waves vertically to draw your eye up to the cypress atop one of the distant hill towns and adding an uplifting feeling to the scene. Wispy clouds mirror similar shapes to the lavender columns and create a harmony between foreground and background, while perspective lines all converge at the summit, leading you to this joyful, peaceful spot.

Blog Talk Radio and Hydrangea Queens in New Orleans - Flower Painting Classes and Workshops by Nancy Medina Art



Sugar Queen Hydrangeas ~ Class Demonstration
by Nancy Medina
20X20
Oil on Deep Gallery Wrap Canvas






No sooner had I unpacked from my back to back workshops in Nashville and New Orleans, and it was time to prep for my Blog Talk Radio Show interview for Artists Helping Artists.


I'm so nervous! What if I forget my name? Worse yet, what if I forget the studio helpers' names?

Leslie Saeta and Margaret Sheldon, the hostesses, assure me it's just a chat between friends, nothing to be concerned about. Nevertheless, my motto is: It's best to be over prepared. I've glued post-it notes all over my computer and begun gargling with salt water. I've included essential information, too, like my name, blue and yellow makes green, all those little things that slip my 50-plus year old mind. Read more....

New Aspen Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

"Reaching for the Heavens II" ©2015 Niki Gulley
40" x 30" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

In this painting, I wanted you to you to experience the joy of looking up into the treetops – just like you did when you were a kid. Lying on the ground, not a care in the world, you gaze in wonderment as the clouds drift by. Choosing playful colors and thick chunky staccato strokes add to that childlike whimsy and I hope you are transported back to a happy, carefree time and place.

Texas Artist Niki Gulley Showing at the Dallas Arboretum this Weekend

"Spring Forth III," Texas Hill Country ©2015 Niki Gulley
24" x 12" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

In this painting, I wanted to capture the rhythm, color, and density of our bluebonnets, Indian Paintbrush and vibrant wildflowers flowing along the grassy rises and falls of the berms in the Texas Hill Country. Making sure not to over blend my thick strokes so that you could see the marks and feel the energy found in nature, Spring Forth s is loaded with texture, color and movement. Repeating patterns, shapes and hues unite foreground and background while arranging the bluebonnets and distant clouds vertically are designed to lift your spirits and add joy to your home.

Vacation this Summer with Shep in Cloudcroft...Painting!

It's time to start thinking about you planning your "Art Vacation" to Cloudcroft. Every August Donna and I like to invite a group to Cloudcroft, New Mexico for a great week of Art Lessons where I teach my "Paint Like a Vacation" class. The weeks of 8/3 and 8/10 are the weeks I'll be teaching my class this year. We paint in the great outdoors, take hikes where we'll paint in plein aire and sometimes get lucky and see the Wild Mustangs. For Dallas Area Artists, we have an Artist signed up and she's looking for someone to share the ride to Cloudcroft. We do classes from 2 to 4 people, and you stay at our cabin (pictures above) at no charge in the "Bunkhouse" downstairs. 
The lessons are $525 for 5 classes and 6 nights.

Spring Rain Irises
16X16
Oil on Deep Gallery Wrap Canvas




.

This morning my iris garden was struggling to regain its footing after the cool rains yesterday. A flock of yellow blossoms had fallen to the earth, so I took up my garden scissors and brought them indoors for a modeling session. My four pug helpers accompanied me on this rhizome reconnaissance mission into the gardens.

I hope you've had some productive moments in your spring garden, with helpers nearby to keep you smiling - tomorrow morning I'm off to teach in New Orleans, one of my favorite places in the whole world - and I'm not just saying that because of the beignets, cher!
