COWGIRL by Angela Elledge

6x9 oil on canvas

Ok, let's just get this out of the way, I know I'm probably stretching it when I say this little pup has a dreamy look in her eyes, but she does...let me explain!

This is our new little puppy, Cowgirl. After we lost our 15 year old Schnauzer Zoe, we dreamed of a new dog, and look what we dreamed up! After all that time we had forgotten what it was like to have a new puppy in the house, but we now know that cute little innocent look is actually Cowgirl dreaming and scheming what she's going to explore or destroy next!

I promise I will not incorporate a dog into each of our themes, but just this once I had to!

A Nice Place to Dream by Nancy Medina

Oil on Linen

A Nice Place to Dream is an original oil painting combing scenes from the Dallas Arboretum's red tulip panorama, with a background courtesy of San Diego's Balboa Park Spanish architecture. This feels like a nice place to dream to me. Somewhere it would be safe to believe in a miracle, and somewhere you might meet a loved one you have missed for years.

Jackson Hole Chapel by Kay Wyne

Jackson Hole Chapel
Painting #3
Oil on 8" x 36"
Gallery Wrap Canvas
I can only say that I wish my dreams would come true, and that I was painting on location in Jackson Hole....escaping the brutal Texas heat. After painting two versions of this chapel, I was not satisfied. So I started slapping the paint on the mountains with a palette knife and got loose on this canvas. At one point the grass in the foreground was green.....and it blended in too much with the aspen trees. So I did scrape the paint off the fence and ground. I have been known to have "issues" with green before....everyone at the studio knows that I can get into trouble with green paint. So I used Naples Yellow, Yellow Ochre and some Raw Umber on the ground. I did have my struggles with this painting, but was happy with the end results. This was a commission piece and now hangs in the Harris' home in Dallas, Texas. Have a great day, and thanks for viewing this blog! Stay cool.

"Reemergence" by Gwen Bell

30 X 24 oil on canvas nfs

I missed the Challenge last month so I'm getting it
in early this month for the "Dreams"

It is so exciting to really step out of
my comfort zone
and do something completely
different and conceptual.
This has a lot of personal symbolism from a time that was
particularly scary and isolating as a young child. I still
have reoccurring dreams about it. I used
several references
of myself: one terrified, one trying to
figure it all out and
one attempting to reemerge as the happy

Forever Love by Roxanne Spradlin

Forever Love..........11 x 14...........acrylic on canvas.........$125


She finally decided, to be His! Embracing her irreplaceable role, she skips down the path of life scattering flowers of beauty and joy to those along the way. Confident in His forever love, she blooms, blooms and blooms. Growing sweeter with each passing day. Generously sharing her favorite secret....the best is yet to come.

Happily ever after,

Wigs by Kay Wyne

18" x 18" oil on gallery wrap canvas
This painting evolved with a painting challenge. Karin Jurick has a blog, Different Strokes From Different Folks. Every two weeks she posts a photograph, and artists are invited to paint or draw interpretations of that photograph. I think that there were about 75 artists who participated in this challenge. The photograph for the inspiration for this painting is a Wig Shop window. A couple of fellow studio partners painted this also, and we agreed that it was a challenge as we grumbled and painted. My painting ended up with some angles, and abstract. This painting could be in one of my colorful dreams...abstract, out of focus, bright colors, and interesting shapes. This painting is sold, and currently hangs in College Station, Texas. Thanks for viewing this blog! Kay

Anchor Courts No. 3 by Mitzi Easley

Anchor Courts No. 3 by Mitzi Easley
8x8, oil on panel
visit my blog by clicking here
Found this spot on an early morning ride around Port Aransas. There are 10 little, brightly-colored bungalows at the Anchor Courts - the property is for sale and we would call it...hmmm.... a fixer-upper. If one was entertaining a dream of living on the beach, this could be a very retro-charming family compound. I call the pink bungalow for living and this turquoise one for my studio. This painting is going to the ARC of the Capital Area's 10th Annual Building Bridges Art Auction in October. I'm happy to be included in such a worthy cause - click here for more info.

Horizon Series: Abstract 1023 by Kay Wyne

Horizon Series: Abstract 1023 - SOLD
Here is another Horizon Series Painting....This 18" x 18" Gallery Wrap Canvas has color, lines, shapes and texture. The oil paints were pushed around with palette knives and brushes. I am posting this painting because I dream about color. I don't know if I am a colorist or not, but I love color. (I need to research the definition of a colorist...maybe a good subject for my next posting on my blog!) All of my art is full of color - it could be an abstract, a landscape, an animal portrait or mixed media. I love color! If you are interested in viewing more of my art, please go to my blog:

Pass the Salt by Roxanne Spradlin

Pass the Salt!.................11 x 9..................acrylic on canvas...................$125

Sometimes, I 'day dream' about my childhood....remembering people and places, memories and special moments that touched my life. Sweet visits, laughter and lessons learned. Though many are gone, they are embedded in my heart and there we can visit often.
Painting these memories are another way to keep them, and the joy they bring alive. Pass the Salt, is dedicated to the memory of the 'one hundred times' our family gathered around an old table, to cut an ice cold watermelon.
So grab a fork and pass the salt!
Blue skies!
