Tight Bunch by Kay Wyne

Tight Bunch
20" x 20" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Still Life Painting
I picked up a couple of bunches of hydrangeas at Trader Joe's this week and set up a simple still life.  We were hosting Karen Blair - contemporary artist from Virginia, at the studio and this floral arrangement came in handy, as almost all the artists painted it.  I chose not to use any medium on this painting because I wanted a thick painterly look on the canvas.  It will take a long time for the oils to dry!  Here is a close-up:
Thanks for taking a peak at this painting.  "Tight Bunch" is drying at the studio, but will be looking for a new home in the near future.  Thanks, Kay

New "Happy Thoughts" Palette Knife Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Happy Thoughts II" ©2016 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 24" x 12" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

Just Sold! Inspired by our travels to Provence, I painted these cheerful sunflowers with extremely thick oil paint and palette knife so that the resulting image leaps off the canvas and is loaded with energy, color and texture.

Still Life by Kay Wyne

Sunflowers, Hydrangeas and Grapes:  A Still Life
40" x 40" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Still Life Painting
This still life is the latest art challenge going on in the studio.  I personally think it is interesting, busy and colorful...and it was fun to paint!  Obviously there is a lot going on, with 8 or 9 vases, 2 candlesticks, sunflowers, hydrangeas, grapes, an orange, leaves, 5 or 6 different fabrics, weeds, greenery, and just a lot of stuff.  The textures are wonderful...silver, ceramic, dried weeds, soft fabric, and I think there was a dead rat in there somewhere.  It was put together by Sharon, and everyone has been asked to paint it...or at least parts of it.                    
Here's my view of the set-up from my easel.  This painting is drying now.
Thanks for looking at my art posted here...Kay Wyne

Partly Cloudy Mountain View, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

Partly Cloudy Mountain View
9x12 oil on raymar canvas panel

We drove by this view on the way to William's Creek Reservoir  in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. I made a metal note to return to this gorgeous scene.   I did return the next morning and set up quickly. Soon after it started raining and rained until I couldn't keep things dry. I painted under the back hatch on the car and it worked for a while.  As soon as I shut down and left and arrived back to the cabin, the sun came out!  This painting is available for purchase. Email me if you are interested. Thank you for viewing my art.

New "Popping Color II" Palette Knife Poppy Painting by Niki Gulley

"Popping Color II" ©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 colorful 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!

For information on Popping Color II or more of my contemporary impressionistic landscape paintings, please see my new works at the Good Art Company Gallery,
