From Texas Gulf Coast Artist, Terrye Philley

"Purple Grapes with Pear and Aperitif" 
9x12 Oil on Panel  Black gallery frame

One of the things I like to do is go through some of my earlier paintings and studies and update them.   Here is one I worked on recently.   It will be on display at the "Flying Vine Bistro" in November, if it hasn't been snatched up before then. 

Tuscan Vineyard Palette Knife Oil Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

SOLD • 48" x 60" textured oil painting

I was recently commissioned to paint this vineyard scene set against miles of rolling hills dotted with grapevines and olive trees. Working from some of my plein air sketches, photographs, and personal memories from our trips to the area, I created this large textured oil painting with palette knives and tons of paint. Full of color and movement, I arranged the planted grapevines to lead your eye back to the Tuscan villa and then to the beautiful countryside beyond.

If you would like to come along on one of our upcoming Plein Air Painting / Photography Workshops to Tuscany, Italy in September or Cinque Terre / Lake Como, Italy in September visit for more information. We'd love to have you join us!


E-mail Niki Gulley for more information.

Neptune’s Court..Watermedia..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews

NEPTUNE'S COURT began in a recent abstract workshop I took with Mary Ann Beckwith.

Lots of paint flying everywhere, textures and creativity.

I had just a big sheet of this Yupo (manufactured paper) covered in implied textures, very pretty, but now what?

The paint always GLOWS on Yupo, and yes, this is mostly WATERCOLOR with some acrylic GESSO over parts, NO INK is used, although I bet some of you thought I had used INK..

I love a challenge.

Pretty as my start was with patterns made by stamping objects or cloth into and over paint, I feel we as artists, should not rely on that alone. It's a trap.. and many artists deem a painting finished before they truly have done much of their own 'pulling together'.

The challenge is making A PAINTING out of all of this lusciousness.

For days now I have gone back and forth with this, breaking objects into the patterns I made, losing and diminishing the importance of my implied textures, to make my AQUATIC shapes evolve.

It takes a LOT of thought, and I constantly turned this around to show all angles before I decided on this vertical format. The painting actually works okay with most angles though.

                                                    I hope you like my result.

                                            This image is 21.5" x 30" unframed

                                                               $550 plus S/H

            Prints of this image can also be purchased through Fine Art America:

Majesty Sublime..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews

MAJESTY SUBLIME was started yesterday as a demo for the Brenham Arts League.

What a lovely audience I had, and it was a pleasure having such an eager participation for my demonstration. Thank you all so much.

I worked more on this today just to complete the image, although I had a good start at the demo, it was just not a 'home run' quite yet.

I think it's okay now, I will live with it a day or so and see how I feel.

                  This image is on Sennelier sanded paper (a dark green I believe) 

                                   It is unframed and measures 19.5" x 25.5"

                                                                $525 plus S/H

                           Prints are also available through my Fine Art America site..

                                                                    Thanks for visiting..
