7"x5" knifed sunflower  for you Framed.   I am showing you my ETSY shop

Untitled, by Melissa A.Torres, 12x12 oil on canvas










Sometimes, a painting looks a certain way in my head, then ends up totally different on canvas. Here is a perfect example. I initially planned on making this a very detailed painting, but decided to have fun and use a palette knife. I usually paint very detailed, realistic paintings in acrylics, but with oils, I like to use a lot of paint and texture. I love using a palette knife. I'm still looking for a name for this one.

Whirlwind by Kay Wyne


Whirlwind
40" x 30" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Abstract
I started this abstract several months ago, and got to a point where I did not know what to do.  This had originally started out as a floral landscape, but that changed very quickly. I had some lavenders, grey and greens mixed on my palette and took the palette knife to it.  There is texture on the canvas because I used impasto to expedite the drying time.  And, there is movement on the canvas, which keeps the eye moving around the canvas.  I felt like the rotation movement looked like a whirlwind or the inside of a funnel cloud.  Kind of fast and impulsive.  Thanks for looking at my blog.  Have an artful day...Kay

New "Carpet of Crimson" Tuscany Painting by Niki Gulley

"Carpet of Crimson" ©2016 Niki Gulley
24" x 12" textured oil painting

I wanted this piece to be uplifting and full of color and energy. Set beneath a multi-hued sky on a beautiful day in springtime with the poppies and wildflowers in full bloom, I hope all of your cares drift away while gazing into this cheerful scene.

In this vertical wildflower series, I've framed the paintings in espresso floater frames so that you can still see the textured oil paint continuing around the edges of the canvas. These poppies look great hung alone or in a grouping, too!

To see more of Niki Gulley's textured landscape paintings please check out NikiGulley.com,

SPRING BOUQUETS by Linda Popple


SPRING BOUQUET
8x8
Oil on Panel


SPRING BOUQUET 2
8x8
Oil on Panel

These paintings were accepted into Dutch Gallery's "Spring Reflections", their spring juried show.  The second painting was abstracted from the first one and although I enjoyed painting both of them I have to say the abstract was more fun.  The show runs from May14 to July 16.  If you are in the Dallas area stop in and see some great art.

New Palette Knife Lavender Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Fragrant Convergence" ©2016 Niki Gulley
24" x 12" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

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 lone tree in the distance. One puffy cloud mirrors its shape as the lavender columns create a flowing rhythm. Perspective lines all converge, leading you to this joyful spot and I hope you can smell the amazing aromas and feel your spirits lifted while gazing into this scene!
