Shea Baby by Kay Wyne


Shea Baby
30" x 24" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Oil Painting
Shea was our third lab, and a great dog.  She was always fetching a tennis ball.  I used bold brush strokes on the canvas, and kept the painting loose.  This painting is one of my favorites because I captured Shea's personality.  I probably need to do another pet portrait of Penny Lane and Gurl.  Even though they don't get along.  Happy day after Thanksgiving...we will be putting the Christmas tree up!  Contact Kay for more information on my animal paintings.  Kay

Pink Zone Peonies is the daily newbie in Flower Mound Studio, celebrating the Day 3 of the fresh peony extravaganza bonanza, as well as a day of feasting and thanks. I hope your holiday was beautiful, filled with loved ones, comfort, laughter, and, even some little four footed snugglers. Right now I have one little puggy girl snoozing with her chin on my foot, and another in my lap resting her chin on my wrist. The important thing is, the pugs are happy! I'm happy too - I love painting peonies, they are so frilly and unkempt. Even their leaves are quite a tangle, reminding me of the old adage, every crooked line can use a bend in it! Happy Thanksgiving to you flower friends, may your pumpkin pie have extravagant portions of home made whippy creme on it!

Day 1, Cinque Terre and Lake Como Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

"Table for Two" ©2014 Niki Gulley • 12" x 9" oil painting

Cinque Terre and Lake Como Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams
Day 1: Monterosso / the 5 Village Hike

We were greeted in Cinque Terre with gorgeous sunny weather, so the photographers and tourists headed out on our first morning on the 5 mile scenic hike high above, linking the five cities of the Cinque Terre, taking in breathtaking scenery along the way. With our paint gear, we opted to stay in Monterosso and capture this beautiful quiet courtyard, with its soft dappled light and lovely plantings.


That evening we connected with the hikers and enjoyed a delicious dinner of fresh caught seafood, local pesto and pasta, and tasty Italian wine. A great end to a perfect first day!

Peach Sorbet Peonies and a Romantic Kitty Finds a Home - Paintings by Nancy Medina

 Peach Sorbet Peony Bouquet

Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

Sold







Peach Sorbet is the newest large work on the easel, as I paint these fresh peonies as quickly as I can - after all, how many more times this winter will I find peonies in the market? I was thrilled to get a note informing me that the new owner of my latest Romantic Kitty painting was very happy with their new acquisition. Not only that, their kitty, Spike, liked it, too! Visit my bloggy to see the furry purry evidence! Though, I suspect Spike was more interested in the shipping box than the painting...

Jimmy Longacre_subjective realist landscape paintings_REAL GOOD BARNS


Occasionally, I'll take an old painting and see what I can do with it. This one was started on the spot, two summers ago.  I found it in my "too be considered pile" last week, and decided to turn the sunshine on.  The owner of the property had found me painting these late 1800's barns and wistfully commented while I was painting them, "These was real good barns".  Looking back over the past year, I'm thankful for another year of getting to do the thing I love most. I wish you all a joyful Thanksgiving.

Last Day, Tuscany Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

"Villa with a View" ©2014 Niki Gulley • 10" x 8" Textured oil painting
Day 7, Tuscany Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

On the last day of our Tuscany Art Trek, the morning started out a little drizzly so some of us stayed and painted from inside the villa while others went into town to explore, shop and photograph. The architecture of the farmhouse is so interesting with its 6 inch wood beams, solid wood shutters, stuccoed walls, stone exterior and even the radiator below the window that I wanted to capture some of its charm with part of our view out the window. Luckily for a few minutes the sun tried peeking through the clouds, so I tried to capture some of that warmth in my painting.


While usually in the 70s and 80s when we lead the trips to Tuscany, for some reason this year it got really chilly that afternoon. So turning rain into sunshine, we lit a fire and relaxed with new friends, sharing stories, paintings and photographs from the trip. We capped the night off with an amazing dinner and drifted off to sleep, full, happy and at peace.
