Color My World by Kay Wyne


Color My World
14" x 10" Canvas on Panel
Contemporary Floral Landscape
This painting is drying at the studio.  I have two layers of paint on the panel, then lots of palette knife work.  I used impasto to get some texture on the smooth canvas.  The photograph may not show, but the clouds are thick, broad strokes of oils with the knife.  I will get this framed once it is dry...it needs to sit right now so that the paint won't get smudged up.  Feel free to contact ME for purchasing info.  Thanks for looking, Kay

"Heightened Awareness" Palette Knife Aspen Treetop Painting by Niki Gulley

"Heightened Awareness” ©2015 Niki Gulley
48” x 30” textured mixed media on canvas

In this painting I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up in into the treetops and the heavens above. Choosing vibrant, cheerful yellows contrasted against a vivid blue sky and arranging the aspens in a circular pattern heightened by thick, curving paint strokes, both add to that joyful, playful feeling of hope and discovery.






Spring Rain Peony and Hydrangea Garden - Flower Painting Classes and Workshops by Nancy Medina Art


Spring Rain Peony and Hydrangea Garden
by Nancy Medina 
36X48
Oil on Deep Gallery Wrap Canvas




Spring Rain Peony and Hydrangea Garden is my newest large container garden, unveiled at my art event at Wine Down Market in Flower Mound Saturday. I'm humbled and honored at such a great turnout for the show! Thanks so much to everyone who joined me, and congratulations to Kay McCarthy who won a fun and squishable peony pillow. All the proceeds for the pillow giveaway went to one of my favorite charities, Dallas Ft Worth Pug Rescue. There were several quite good looking puggies who joined us for the event, four footed snuffly little ambassadors to the cause. I'll be having another art show at Wine Down Market again this year, right in time for holiday shopping, I sure hope you can join me there! Visit my bloggy to see pictures of art and pugs, what a perfect mix!




A future flower painter arrives, hooray for Jodi!

Oh Happy Day! by Kay Wyne


Oh Happy Day!
18" x 36" Oil on Heavy Duty Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Still Life Painting
My favorite canvas shape is the square, but I really like the canvas I picked for this horizontal still life.  The vase of flowers is intentionally off-center.  The bouquet fills the canvas and is spilling over the edges, implying that the bouquet is full and over-flowing.  I used the palette knife on most of this painting.  The canvas has plenty of texture color.  I focused on lavenders and greens and greys and mixed piles and piles of oils when I painted this.  This painting is for sale, and is hanging at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas for the "Local Color" exhibit.  It will be up for the next week, then a new show, "It's A Small World" begins June 6th.  Thanks for looking at this blog....Kay

A Free Tulip Video and Framed in Violet White Roses - Flower Painting Classes and Workshops by Nancy Medina Art


Framed in Violet White Roses
by Nancy Medina
14X14
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas






Framed in Violet White roses celebrates the push and pull of warm and cool violets, and how it can be just so much fun to let your hair down and play with color. Today the pugs and I are celebrating in the studio the release of my full-length, free tulip video. Just a flower footnote for all those who watch, unlike my professional DVDs, Pink Pirouette Tulip on video was just an amateur production done by yours truly, with her puggy assistants, so the sound is not high quality. I beg your forgiveness for that, though, if you listen closely, as a consolation prize, you might just hear snoring, snorting, barking and other assorted puggy noises! Stay tuned to the end for some fun out-takes involving the helpers!

Click here to watch your free video!


I hope you enjoy this little tulip treat, I created it for you as a thanks for walking with me on this flower-strewn path of my first year as a full-time artist, and also to celebrate hitting 14,000 Facebook fans. I thank you from the bottom of my heart - with flowers - and pug kisses, too!








The studio models take a bow!

New "Golden Aura II" Palette Knife Birch Painting by Niki Gulley

"Golden Aura II" ©2015 Niki Gulley
36" x 48" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

Painted with extremely thick oil paint and palette knives so that this canvas is loaded with texture and bursting with color, flickering autumn leaves seem to almost dance in a gentle breeze. I wanted this scene to be filled with movement and energy, so I incorporated a lot of diagonal and curving shapes in the design to suggest that feeling. While combining short staccato strokes along with long sweeping passes with my palette knives also increase that sense of motion. I hope you, too, can feel the excitement of walking through the woods on a beautiful fall day, letting your cares slip away and your spirit being invigorated.

Email me for more information on this birch painting.
