6x8 oil on canvas
My best friend, Tina is quite the fashionista, and apparently so is her little granddaughter, Kate. When I received this photo, it cracked me up and I could not help but paint it for our theme of Pink. I painted Kate about a year ago in another funny little ensemble, you can see that painting here.

PINK by Linda Popple

6x6 Oil on Ampersand Gessobord

Click HERE to visit my blog.

I have not been productive at the easel this past week. I can't even remember how many times I took a rag and wiped out a support and those that I didn't wipe out are now in the trash pile. I would like to say I learned something. I suppose I did reinforce my feelings for painting, because I would have surely given up entirely if I didn't love it so much!

The challenge for this month's Some Texas Artists Like to Paint is pink. I found this little pink take out box and finally I was able to paint something and it remained on the canvas. :-) Because the package is all one color it was a good exercise for values, which I always seem to need.

Next Monday Carol Marine's workshop in Jacksonville, Florida begins. I am very excited about attending again! Is there anyone out there who also will be going? If so, I would love to hear from you.

My friend Janice's has the prettiest lily pond in her backyard. Today I painted one. I learned a lot and I believe I'll try it again tomorrow!

"Pink Hat"

8 x 10 by Ann Rogers
oil on canvas panel

When I saw that "pink" was the theme for this month, I was at a loss. Normally I don't "do" pink in clothing, in my house and not in paintings. So hopefully this pink hat will pass, painted from a photo taken by my husband on South Padre Island.

Pink Gerbera Daisy by Nancy Medina

Pink Gerbera Daisy by Nancy Medina
Oil on Canvas

Nancy Medina Web Site
Nancy Medina Art Blog

Gerbera daisies are the hardiest little plants, and pop back time and again in my summer garden, despite the blistering heat or the days with no rain. The yellows took precedence this year, but last year I had a number of pink daisies and this was one of them. I'm hopeful that next year will be pink's turn again.

We were told this week that my aunt Beth has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Beth is one of those tenacious people who always lights up a room and is full of laughter and energy. She is a pediatric oncology nurse so is familiar with what's to come. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

Celebration by Kay Wyne

36" x 36" Oil on Canvas
This contemporary abstract painting is hanging at the Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas. It was painted last year and because of the colors and movement in this painting, I named it Celebration. It is appropriate for me to re-post this painting...The Wyne family has been celebrating lately with the marriage of our daughter, Lindsay to Wesley Henry. My painting time has taken a backseat to the engagement, engagement party and all of the wedding plans. But, I hope to get back into the studio and focus on my painting. I have gotten re-charged and very inspired and will have some new paintings to post soon! Thanks for visiting this blog...

Pink Peony by Roxanne Spradlin

Pink Peony......12 x 12.......Arylic........SOLD

I love flowers! I love the way they look. I love the way they smell (except Lantana) :)
I have so many favorites! If I had a top ten list, I'm pretty sure peonies would make it.
I've painted plenty of roses but this was my first attempt at a peony. I knew that it would be easy to over work these dense petals. So I took a deep breath and painted with a 1" bright and quick/ intentional strokes. Paying careful attention to the contrasts and the 'many' shades of pink.

...I apologize for the unprofessional photo. It's gone now....lesson learned!
