Rural Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "The Way Home" by Carol Schiff, 6x6x1.5" Oil

A few weeks ago, I posted a small rural painting of the North Carolina road I walk almost daily.  Today I am posting a companion piece.

purchase here
100 + shipping

I was in awe of the beauty of the area, with trees forming a canopy over the road and sunlight streaming through.

This small painting is on 6x6x1.5" gallery wrap canvas with the sides painted, allowing it to be hung framed or unframe.

You can find the companion piece here:

Harp Solo by Sally Shisler



"Harp Solo" 201443
4x4" Oil on Board
I'm learning lots from doing these studies on toned board. In the first of the series, Piano Solo, I mentioned that I toned gessoboard with acrylic paint - a mix of thalo blue and raw umber. I like it. I've used it again here. And also my FAVORITE painting color of all time - alizarin crimson. This color is amazing. So much feeling. It looks good everywhere - even on my dog's snout. Also in my hair, though I don't put it there on purpose : ) OK - that said, about the painting. I didn't mean for her to appear to be in a choir robe; it just turned out that way. It's the draping sleeve on the front arm. Because I love to drag paint into paint, this is the effect I get. Oh well. The painting was challenging enough that by the end, I didn't want to mess it up. Like my good painting buddy Noreen Coup says, "DON'T TOUCH IT"!

 Warm Heart Stargazer Lilies
by Nancy Medina
14X14
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas




Warm Hearts Stargazers is the daily newbie in Flower Mound Studio, where things are in a bit of a floral uproar, petals flying hither and yon, leaves scattered everywhere. The studio director in particular has been quite helpful as I pack for the dream vacation of a lifetime, a trip to Southern France. This is my first trip to France, and the hubby is going with so I'll have a big strong guy to carry all my baubles and trinkets and help scout out the best gelato in town. We were told to "pack light" so I've pretty much narrowed down to the following essentials: Read more...

Flower Painting | Small Oil Painting | Daily Painting | White Bird by Carol Schiff | 8x10x1.5" Original Oil

With this flower painting, I wanted to celebrate the beautiful, but not so well recognized, White Bird of Paradise.  If you live in the sub-tropical areas of the world, you probably see orange Bird of Paradise every day, but the white variety is not as plentiful.

purchase here
150 + shipping
 The intresting thing is that although the flowers are similar excluding color, the plant and leaves are quite different.


This variety grows on a much taller plant.  I have one over 12 feet tall.  The orange plant is lower to the ground and more bush like.

No frame necessary!
Thanks for reading my blog today.

Drum Solo by Sally Shisler



"Drum Solo" 201442
4x4" Oil on Board
Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Sting, Tears for Fears....this gives me away - went to college in the late 80's. I'm sorry; it remains my favorite music to paint to. Plus, since I've been working on Drum Solo, it suits. I have to thank everyone for all the positive, encouraging, lovely, happy-happy comments! I guess I should have joined FB a long time ago. This little painting was HARD! I've been getting lots of questions about sizes, technique, materials, etc. What I see; why I leave some things in and take some things out. The longer I paint, the more abstract my vision is. Goal is to say just enough without overstating. I think it's interesting to wonder what might have gone in spaces that appear untreated/neglected/forgotten/avoided . I'm not good enough to render everything anyway - let's be honest. But for spaces that I might be avoiding, I ask myself if the element I'm considering really matters. It's hard to answer my own question in the heat of the moment; sometimes it takes a while. Sometimes I scrape a whole section off and start again.

Rhapsody in Blue Lavender
by Nancy Medina
16X20
Oil on Archival Panel



I'm warming up my lavender brushes this week, because next week they'll be dipping into the colors of France! I'll be visiting the property where my August 2015 workshop will be held, testing the gelato, deciding which cheeses are the most yummy, and sipping the local vintage a time or three. It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it! My first France workshop filled in 2 days, so I opened a second workshop and I'm holding a seat especially for you. Don't delay, there are only a few seats left for a painting adventure designed to make your lavender dreams come true!

When I returned, a month later, the fields were green and the wildflowers were mowed down.  Still beautiful  but something was lost.

Pitcher Fountain, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

Pitcher Fountain
10x8 oil on ray mar canvas panel

This new contemporary landscape painting was inspired from a fountain in the garden of the bed and breakfast we stayed at in France. This was in Mane, France at Le Mas du Pont Roman bed and breakfast and was a lovely site in the country.
My husband took the photo and I painted it in the studio. It is available for purchase. $200.00

Dreams Come True and Texas Hill Country Lavender - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina

Hill Country Melody Lavender
by Nancy Medina
14X14
Palette Knife/Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas




If you could take a workshop anywhere in the world, where would your heart and your paint brush lead you? Just when I think my new job as a full time artist and teacher could not get any better, another fringe benefit blossoms right before my eyes. Thanks to my talented, motivated and beautiful students, I've been able to find venues and ideas for teaching flower painting workshops around the world that seemed like just an unreachable dream a year ago.

One of my favorite places to teach is in the Texas Hill Country, and some of my favorite family vacation memories are right here amidst these old stone farmhouses, in particular Settlers Crossing, a B&B five miles from this historic German town. Plans are in the works for another workshop in Fredericksburg next spring, so stay tuned to my workshop page for details to come. Thanks so much Jane for making this dream come true!

We were on one of the higher peaks of the Smokies.  My youngest grandson was delighted!

I tried to capture the feel of the rugged pines that grow at an altitude of 7,000+ feet, with my palette knife.  It allowed a textured feel the reminds me of the prickly and gnarled pines.




I painted on a gallery wrap canvas to allow hanging with or without a frame.

Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
This painting just found a new home in Dallas!  The colors are toned down and earthy compared to my usual palette.  Layers and layers of oils were applied with the palette knife so there is texture on the canvas.  The sides are painted, so framing is optional....it is ready to hang!  Thanks for looking.....Contact Kay with any comments or questions concerning my art.  Stay cool.  KMW

Bleeding Hearts


 Bleeding Hearts
10" x 20"
oil on panel
$400 plus free shipping in North America

My signature style is boats and water, and very very very rarely flowers.  But the boat painting I am currently working on was giving me problems so I thought a change of scene might help distance myself from it for awhile.


I love these old fashioned bleeding hearts with their simple shapes and links to the past for most everyone.  Its funny how an object, sound or colour can bring back childhood memories of places and people isn't it?

Day 7, Provence Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

9" x 12" textured oil painting by Niki Gulley • SOLD

Day 7, Provence Art Trek: 
Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop 
with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

On the last day of our Provence Art Trek, we decided to stay right at our b and b to paint since it was so beautiful. Meanwhile the photographers explored the nearby area, and others relaxed with a morning massage at a nearby spa. Choosing what to paint was a challenge since the grounds are so picturesque. Myself and another painter set up our easels by this lovely lavender-lined Provencal home, while another chose to paint the rose-filled courtyard and another set up by the ancient Roman bridge on the back of the property. It was a gorgeous morning and everyone's paintings turned out great!


For lunch we headed into the nearby hill town, grabbed a delicious snack and had time to explore the back alleys and hike up to the town's fortress with panorama views of the sweeping valleys and countryside.


If you'd like more information or a brochure on one of our upcoming Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshops listed below, please let me know. We are taking reservations for next year's trip to Provence, June 25th - July 3rd, so please let us know if you would like to join us. This year's trip filled up in less than a week!

In this small oil painting, I tried to capture that brief moment in time when the sun drops behind the horizon and backlights a grouping of trees.

 I wanted to leave this with a slight whimsical feeling.  It is on 6x6x1.5" gallery wrap canvas with the sides painted black, allowing it to be hung with or without a frame.  Don't you just love gallery wrap?

I also wanted to show you this neat image a client sent me.  She purchased one of my prints on wood panel and liked it so much, she ultimately ordered another, larger, print of the same scene.  She sent me an image of it hanging in her room.  Thank you Kim... I have headboard envy!!

Violin Solo by Sally Shisler


Violin Solo - 201430, 4x4" Oil on Board
This painting is sold but I may have others like it...
OMG - This is the 3rd time I've tried to get this post going after writing very beautiful, eloquent words (ha) and attaching a photo - everything goes haywire, kaplooey. Anyway - let's try one more time...I talked about loving the process that I've used in these last few paintings. That I think I'm gaining ground on what I have been wanting to say in my work, and how I've been wanting to say it. i love what the palette knife can do - after years of practice, I'm beginning to get a 'grip' on how to control it. It can be very unpredictable, but oh so beautiful when a stroke lays down as planned. I also am plugging my upcoming workshops - next one here in Winter Garden Fl., at end of Sept. I'll post more about it soon. If you want details right away, just message or email me. And I talked about how it's tricky as a teacher to find your own path evolving faster than you can teach students who are signed up to learn your experience; see you share your knowledge, etc. based on what they've seen you do last week. A hoot, and confusing. That said - I LOVE, LOVE teaching and haven't found myself in any real predicaments at all. For anyone who cares to know - I wear my heart on my sleeve. My teaching is really part that and part sharing my personal experience in life. How hard it is to be an artist and a human being at the same time. How inexplicably disastrous our efforts can be and how deliriously joyful they can be too. All depends on our perceptions of reality at any given time. It's important for students to see teachers struggle - that's how they learn best. Wouldn't want to send anyone out into the art world thinking they'll make a million off one successful painting after another. Blah blah - sign up for my workshop if you want to hear more about my philosophies : ) I also teach private instruction!

Sunset Vintage is the daily rendering in Flower Mound Studio, I felt compelled to produce some icy blues and warm grape hues - you might think this is a creation based on some far away European countryside, but it is, in fact, a little vignette from a lavender farm in the Texas Hill Country.
