French Villa, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

French Villa
8x10 oil on canvas
This was inspired from our travels across Southern France this summer. I loved the contrast of the warm landscape against the cool colors of the mountain range.

Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
Today's post is a canvas that I painted several months ago, and it is finally dry.  This dragonfly is abstract and colorful.  I love painting with the palette knife---pushing the paint around, scraping and building the layers up.  I am getting ready to do a palette knife demo this week, so that will be fun.  I have been working on projects in the studio, but don't have a new one to post today.  Thanks for looking....contact Kay for comments or questions.  Thanks, Kay

Touch of Fall White Hydrangeas and a Tennessee Workshop - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina


Touch of Fall White Hydrangeas
by Nancy Medina
Oil on Archival Panel

Touch of Fall White Hydrangeas was one of my class demonstrations today in Collierville, Tennessee. The ladies produced a plethora of lovely white hydrangeas, painting from life this afternoon, and fueled by gourmet cake donuts provided by our gracious host and hostess, Carolyn and Emory Brown. I'm glad they had the donuts, because I unintentionally traumatized the entire class trying to make a point this afternoon. Read more....

A talented bunch of Tennessee ladies!

"Santorini Sunset" Pastel Landscape by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

"Santorini Sunset" ©2014 Niki Gulley
12" x 24" pastel

My husband and I honeymooned in Greece and fell in love with everything about it. Definitely one of our favorite spots was the island of Santorini for its beautiful views of the Caldera, its white-washed architecture with the signature blue domes, the laid back attitude and the warmth of the people. Here is a view at the far end of the island in the town of Oia. I wanted to capture the "skyline," ocean view and the gorgeous sunset that night.

If you’d also like to experience the beauty, history and culture of Greece, join me and travel photographer, Scott Williams, for our Plein Air Painting and Photography Art Trek to Athens and Santorini, Greece May 8-16, 2015. We'd love to have you join us! E-mail Niki Gulley for more information or go to nikigulley.com/artreks for more details on France, Greece, or our Italy Art Treks.

For more information on "Santorini Sunset," please e-mail Niki Gulley.

French Cafe and Sketching in the Street of France - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina


 French Cafe by Nancy Medina
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

French Cafe is the newest painting in Flower Mound Studio, and it's good to be back in the studio. I brought home a head cold from France, and in addition to the time change, it's taken a few days to get back on my feet *playing tiny violin*. It has been a rough re-entry into regular life, with no church bells to wake us each morning, no warm croissant aroma to waft up the stairs and help make the wakeup calls irresistible. I took tons of notes during my trip, to help ease the transition for my students next August, and most especially will be sharing my top 10 rookie mistakes for traveling in Europe, so you'll want to stay tuned to my art blog for that, if only for a few chuckles at my expense.... Read more...


I drew a little crowd when I was sketching
in Rocamadour last week....

"Blind Light" Dallas pastel by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

Blind Light, Dallas West End - pastel - 12" x 18"

Another one of my adventures to the Dallas West End brought me to  this scene.  The light patterns and the lone guy walking away drew me in.  I really like the way the colors fade in the distance.  The leading lines put you right on the street.
