Daily Painting in Progress. I paint on a Painting a Day.

SUNFLOWER SOLO art in progress oil painting on linen 12x9 inches
copyright Vernita Bridges Hoyt 
Daily Painting does not necessarily mean that I complete a painting a day, but it does mean that I do paint daily.

I convert a work-in-progress to digital grayscale to check values. Grayscale does it! The grayscale image shows me where I need to make adjustments.

Currently, I have a sunflower on the easel while a pet portrait awaits the next glaze of oil paint. I find it as easy to paint two paintings as it is to paint one.

As a child, I was reprimanded for daydreaming. Today my daydreams morph into paintings.

Anthony A. González




The expression gave this painting its title.
The model chose this outfit and it worked.  It came
together very well.  I had no trouble choosing this pose to paint.
It's simple but elegant.

New Orleans Garden District Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

"Oak Beauties," New Orleans  ©2015 Niki Gulley
12" x 9" palette knife oil painting

On our plein air painting and photography workshop my husband and I taught in New Orleans this fall, we rode the trolley to the Garden District and set out to capture the beautiful architecture so distinctive of the area. I was attracted to this grand pink house, and in particular I loved the huge old oak tree framing it. The dappled light hitting the trunk was so striking that I decided to accentuate that in my painting with a multitude of colors and values while making the background soft to keep the composition from becoming too cluttered. The sheer size and age of the trees in New Orleans is incredible, which I set out to show juxtaposing the massive oak against the smaller two-story homes in the distance. Created with palette knife and a lot of oil paint, this canvas is loaded with texture and uplifting colors so that you feel the joy and energy of hanging out in New Orleans.

"Oak Beauties" along with several of my new palette knife paintings will be featured in my One Woman Show, hosted at the Good Art Company Gallery in Fredericksburg, TX. If interested in more information on pricing or purchasing this palette knife New Orleans painting, please contact The Good Art Company.

My mother always had a garden and made sure she had vegetables of all kinds available for us three children to eat. I credit my mother with teaching me to like fresh vegetables. Good memories! In my mind I can see Mom working in the garden.

Winter Camillias by artist Pat Meyer



11 x 14 Oil on Linen
contact artist to purchase
Pat@Meyer.net

This winter has been long and cold but at the end of this was the promise of beautiful winter flowers. The Camillia bush must have loved this type of weather because it is full of blooms.  Nothing is more rewarding than having your own gardens flowers to paint.

New "Golden Tangle" Fall Foliage Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

"Golden Tangle" ©2015 Niki Gulley
9" x 12" textured oil on canvas


I painted this golden oak at White Rock Lake last fall. I loved how the canary yellow leaves glowed from the late afternoon sun as it illuminated the foliage from behind. Being backlit, the trunk went an inky velvet black and all of its gnarly limbs popped against that gilded backdrop, which I accented with flecks of crimson. Created with palette knife and a lot of thick oil paint, this canvas is loaded with texture, uplifting color and energy.

If interested in more information on pricing and purchasing this palette knife fall scene, please contact The Good Art Company.

Pecan Valley Park, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

Pecan Valley Park
9x12 oil on raymar canvas panel

When I heard the forecast for this past Monday, I knew I would be playing hookie from work.  There was a heavy fog that created a great atmosphere in the morning. It turned into a spectacular day warming up to the high 70's. Perfect plein air painting weather. 
 This is available for purchase. $225.00
