Teensy-Weensy by Kay Wyne


Teensy-Weensy
2 1/2" x 2 1/2" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Rooster
This is by far the smallest painting I have painted.  I have it drying at the studio and then it will be at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas.  This isn't a very good pic because of the shadow, but I did not want to handle the panel because the paint is so wet.  I have three more smalls to paint and a commission to finish before Christmas.  Then I am going to get ready for another 30 Paintings in 30 Days Paint Challenge.  Thanks for looking....Kay

Touch of Winter White Tulips - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina

Touch of Winter White Tulips
by Nancy Medina
16X12
Oil on Linen Panel




Touch of Winter White Tulips is the daily newbie in Flower Mound Studio today, I found a bundle of fresh tulips at the grocery store this morning, I should not have been grocery shopping, I was supposed to be at the gym, but the new gym my hubby and I belong to is not in the best part of town. Usually I feel pretty safe there, but this morning when I pulled up at 8:30 am, I knew I didn't want to walk through the crowd by the front door, so I kept right on going in my pug-mobile.

The life of an artist is not a dull one, the life of a small business owner is really a story about working seven days a week, but the beauty of this situation is twofold - you set your own hours, you get your personal tasks done, then you dive into your business (painting! *sound of harps*) with a sense of reward at the end of the day, with a bundle of white tulips you had not even realized you would be purchasing that day. All good things happen by design, I simply don't believe in accidents, do you?

Last Day, Lake Como Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

"Unveiling Sunshine," Lake Como ©2014 Niki Gulley • 10" x 8" oil painting

Cinque Terre and Lake Como Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams
Day 8: Varenna

On the last day of Lake Como Art Trek, we stayed right at our hotel and painted the gorgeous view of the town and water below while the photographers explored some more. We reconvened later that afternoon to see what the painters had created each day and watch a slide show of the photographer's work. That evening we dined on a delicious meal of local meats, lake fish, pastas and of course, wine, while enjoying our last night together with new friends. A perfect ending to a wonderful trip!

Itty-Bitty by Kay Wyne




Itty-Bitty
3" x 3" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
This little rooster is all framed up and ready to find a new home!  Pam Massar Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas asked me to paint a small rooster in a very small frame...painting on a 3" x 3" canvas is challenging....I prefer a 30" x 30"!!!!  But, I pulled out two new brushes that were tiny, and here's my results.  As you can see, I am holding the frame and it is small!  Thus, the name of this rooster is Itty-Bitty.  I have four more smalls that I am working on, along with a commission for a Christmas gift...more painting today!  Thanks for looking...Kay

Powdered Sugar Pink Peonies - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina

http://nancymedina.fineartstudioonline.com/workszoom/1635093

 Powdered Sugar Pink
Peonies
by Nancy Medina
14X11
Oil on Cradled Hardboard




Powdered Sugar Pink Peonies is dedicated to my kitchen counters, kitchen floors, and the tops of my tennis shoes today, since all were covered with a fine layer of powdered sugar by the time the Russian Teacakes were cooling. Only one of the pug herd discovered the delights of licking powdered sugar off the floor, confirming my suspicion about the general IQ of the noble little round breed. Their entertainment and snuggle skills, however, outweigh such a tiny imperfection.

Day 7, Lake Como Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

"Villa with a View" ©2014 Niki Gulley • 12" x 9" oil painting

Cinque Terre and Lake Como Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams
Day 7, afternoon location: Villa Babianello

After a busy schedule the day before, several of us opted to take it easy and join a cooking class while others visited the castle in town and one of the villages across the lake. We were whisked away to a tiny nearby hamlet where the chef, Moreno, prepares all of the dishes himself that he serves for dinner at his restaurant. He started the morning out by feeding us cappuccino and homemade cake to enjoy while he began showing us how to roll out and form pasta for cheese tortellini and marinara from scratch. Next up, was a decadent potatoes gruyere with ham slices, all of which we got to sample. The finalé was the creamiest mushroom risotto, local red wine, and don't forget the limoncello for dessert. Yum!

Late that afternoon, we visited the Botanic garden in Varenna, which is spectacular with its colorful tropical plantings, elaborate villa, sculptures and fountains, and fantastic views along the lake. What a great day!
