"Magical Light, Tuscany" • 8" x 10" oil by Niki Gulley

Day 4, afternoon location – ART TREKS: TUSCANY
 with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

After we finished a delicious antipasto lunch of prosciuttos, local pecorino, and fresh fruits and vegetables, we headed into the hills for our afternoon painting location. Starting fairly late in the day, we timed it so that the light would be soft and golden as we were putting the finishing details on our paintings. For this painting, we focused in closer on one of the tuscan farmhouses, with just a suggestion of the peaks and valleys in the background. Between the quiet surroundings, the quintessential Tuscan vineyard behind us and the perfect weather conditions, this proved to be a very inspiring afternoon.

Hibiscus Flower Garden, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

Hibiscus Flower Garden
9x12 oil on canvas

This was painted in my garden recently.  The summer heat sure makes it a challenge to keep the colorful flowers alive.  I thought I better get out early in the morning before the heat set in. The bright colors of this flower garden makes my heart sing.  This is available for purchase. Please email me if you are interested.
Thank you for viewing my art.

New "Autumn Cascades" Palette Knife Aspen Painting by Niki Gulley

“Autumn Cascades” ©2017 Niki Gulley
12” x 24” textured oil on canvas

Water pounds its way down the falls: cascading, rushing, charging into the riverbed -- flowing over rocks, swiftly moving forward. Untamed, the surge finds its way over, under, around the boulder-strewn river. Tumbling waters drive up mists above the falls, the rhythmic sounds create a soothing harmony below, while autumn colors glow as we peer through the tangle of textured Aspen trees.

If you have any questions about Autumn Cascades or my palette knife Aspen tree paintings, please e-mail Niki Gulley.

"Exchange and Main"

"Exchange and Main"
Copyright 2017 Irma Ward
30" x 30"

A little bit here and a little bit there…like the setting sun, slowly the landscape changes and we hardly notice.  Our past gradually slips away until one day we are caught looking backwards and trying to piece it together in our minds.  Places we remember and things we have done are important threads in the fabric of life.  Whether it is a building, automobile, or other relic, we cannot eradicate those things that tell our story.  Preservation, restoration, and imagery are keys to linking the present to the past.  I hope this scene brings up happy memories for you.

Sylvia Mystique by artist Pat Meyer

16 x 20 oil on linen panel
contact artist to purchase

Sylvia was a mysterious ballerina that performed in France.  She had the most exotic feeling while she performed.  The ladies of France wanted their daughters to fine the grace and beauty that enthralled the audiences of France.  In this painting it was my goal to let her beautiful hair down and wrap her beauty in it.

Andalusia Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams: Toledo

Day 1, Afternoon - Toledo, Spain: Andalusia Art Trek
"Dappled Light" • Sold
12" x 9" oil painting by Niki Gulley

Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop Led by Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

After lunch on the first day of our Spain Art Trek, we gave everyone free time to explore the city. Some visited the Cathedral, some toured the el Greco art museum, others shopped and some painted. 
I set up my easel in this peaceful garden shaded by these massive trees and painted the colorful architecture in the distance and the beautiful dappled light raking across the scene. That evening we dined on a gourmet tapas meal of scallops wrapped in bacon with lobster sauce, duck and strawberry salad, beef tenderloin with grilled asparagus, smoked octopus and assorted desserts. Delicious and a perfect ending to a fun-filled day!

Dinner in Toledo

Next summer we will be leading Art Treks to Italy and Croatia / Slovenia. So if you've always dreamed of painting, photographing and sightseeing in Europe, please join us for one of these amazing trips! See details at

A Day At The Beach by artist Pat Meyer

11 x 14 oil on linen panel
contact artist to purchase

Well here it is the middle of summer and most of us have either been to the beach, planning to go to the beach or dreaming of being at the beach.  This little beach scene was painted in the sugar white sands of Destin.  The colors bounce every which way against the blue sky.  The lone tree on the beautiful dunes.  May this painting bring A Day At The Beach home to you each day.
