Sgt Daisy, by Melissa A. Torres, 22x28 acrylic on canvas

This painting is of retired MWD Sgt Daisy. Daisy served in Afghanistan as a bomb sniffing dog. She is now retired. She now gets to spend the rest of her days with a friend of mine. I portrayed her on Marla's hardwood floors where she now plays. The "bomb" is the first chew toy Marla bought her. The boots represent the soldiers she has worked alongside. 

New Dallas Skyline Painting by Niki Gulley

"Golden Moment, White Rock Lake" ©2014 Niki Gulley
Textured oil on canvas • 12" x 24"

On a peaceful autumn day last fall, I went out with my camera to White Rock Lake and captured this beautiful sunset behind the Dallas skyline. I liked how the pampas grass and various plants in the foreground were back lit by the setting sun and how the water's surface was shimmering from the low light, adding to a sense of mystery and tranquility in that golden moment.

Buttercup by Kay Wyne

Contemporary Cow
18" x 24" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
I completed this painting in the studio today.  I just made some minor changes that have an impact on this Buttercup...her colors are so warm and rich.  So buttery....I thought that Buttercup was ideal for her name.  Hi lights and low lights and some random splashes of turquoise and coral punch it up.  For the most part I used a flat wide brush, but in the end, used a small filbert to scrub in some color and abstract lines.  Contact Kay for more information and photos on Buttercup.  Have an artful day.....KMW

Santa Fe Golden Light, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

Santa Fe Golden Light
22x28 oil on canvas

I was fortunate to spend some time in Santa Fe during the fall color display. This was inspired from a location I painted at in the heart of town.  There was a small park with distance views of the mountains and the glorious trees. This is available for purchase.

Title   Tonka Truck and Pot Plant
Medium oils on canvas
Size  12" x 9" and Framed
purchase for  $200.00 + shipping

My husband found this old run over Tonka Truck and thought it would make a great painting. I think it did.. I painted it next to one of my pot plants.  The truck was buried in the ground and he had to straighten the  cab protector part.  It had character to me.

"Diagonal Shadows" - New White Rock Lake Painting by Niki Gulley

“Diagonal Shadows” White Rock Lake ©2014 Niki Gulley
12” x 24” oil on canvas

Sunset draws lengthening shadows across the grassy waters edge at Sunset Bay, White Rock. The lake shimmers in the evening glow as sky high above fills with deep blues and before you the soft, moody colors stretch out, long lines beckoning you into the complex diagonal composition. Rich texture models the leaves, branches and tree trunk rimmed in the sunset and shadow. Vivid masses of color form the foliage on the opposite bank, fall at its peak. The long cast shadows draw you into the tranquil landscape and the peaceful, dreamy sunset at White Rock Lake.

Piggy Piggy by Kay Wyne

Piggy Piggy
18" x 18" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Pig Painting
I remember driving through a farm in the midwest, where the cows, horses and pigs were running loose.  This pig looked as if he was going to walk up to me and start a conversation.  I could tell he had personality, and that is what I painted on the canvas...a pig with attitude!   Piggy Piggy is sold, but I do paint commissions.  Contact Kay for more information on the art posted here.  Thanks, Kay
