Contemporary Impressionistic Landscape Floral Palette Knife Original Oil Painting by Sheri Jones

Fresh View
20x16 oil on canvas

 We took a country drive recently and passed by this bright red house. It has a garden of roses at the front gate. I had a vision of of bright and happy hollyhocks instead. I took out my artist license and it seemed to paint itself.  Here's to warmer days and fresh views.

Colorful Contemporary Landscape Painting, Abstract Landscape, Tree, “Look Again“ by Passionate Purposeful Painter Holly Hunter Berry

 


We are told we only get one chance at a first impression. Well, I was passing by this patch of trees and vegetation when I took a second look. I had to "Look Again" just because I didn't feel I gave the plants a fair chance to impress me with their beauty, their story. We all have a story and at first glance it might not seem attractive but look a second time and you might find a more colorful and delightful way to experience the view. This painting is my attempt to suggest that and I of course used a bit more color than is usually seen so maybe you will take a second look at the painting! Enjoy!

Contemporary Impressionistic Landscape Acrylic Original Oil Painting by Sheri Jones


                                                 Lake Granbury in View

                                                11x14 acrylic on canvas


I'm always delighted to get a peek of the lake from a different view.  This is a from a spot just outside of the Acton Nature Center.  For an added challenge I painted this with acrylic on canvas. Changing mediums is a wonderful way to bring a fresh approach to the creative process.

"Sunny Horizon" Palette Knife Sunflower Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

 

“Sunny Horizon" ©2019 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 30" x 48" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

Just Sold through The Good Art Company Gallery! Inspired by a trip through the Midwest, I was filled with joy seeing this solid field of gold! At the same time, the clouds above were so voluminous and dramatic that I had to recreate the scene. The horizon stretches out before us as festive blossoms dance in the early evening glow. Leaving my strokes loose and free and working with palette knife to create volume and texture, all add to the energy of the painting. I hope you, too, can feel the peace and happiness of being surrounded by nature in all of its glory, staring into the clouds while soaking in the moment.

For more details on Sunny Horizon, please contact my gallery, the Good Art Company, in Fredericksburg, TX at goodartcompany.com/gacart/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=25&sort=20a&page=1&z.

New Large Sunflower Painting by Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley

  

 “Dripping with Sunshine” ©2020 Niki Gulley

30" x 48" Textured Mixed Media on Canvas

I was inspired this year to paint uplifting energetic scenes to give spirits a boost. I chose to make the subjects appear as if they were about to come off the canvas and fill you homes with joy and happiness. By leaving more negative space around blooms, it makes them more airy and give them room to flow.

Blue Morning Glories, flowers, oil painting, Barbara Haviland

 Blue Morning Glories are done in oils from photos

Available  for purchase

In cultivation, most are treated as perennial plants in frost-free areas and as annual plants in colder climates, but some species tolerate winter cold. There are some species which are strictly annual (e.g. I. nil), producing many seeds, and some perennial species (e.g. I. indica) which are propagated by cuttings. Some moonflowers, which flower at night, are also in the morning glory family.

Because of their fast growth, twining habit, attractive flowers, and tolerance for poor, dry soils, some morning glories are excellent vines for creating summer shade on building walls when trellised, thus keeping the building cooler and reducing heating and cooling costs.

Popular varieties in contemporary western cultivation include ‘Sunspots’‘Heavenly Blue’, the moonflower, the cypress vine, and the cardinal climber. The cypress vine is a hybrid, with the cardinal climber as one parent.

Many morning glories will self-seed in the garden. They have a hard seed coat which delays germination until late spring. Germination may be improved by pre-soaking in warm water.[citation needed]
