SKY by Linda Popple

8x8 Oil on Canvas

Across the River

With 8 days to go, I finally come through! San Antonio had all gray 
sky for a week, then a cloudless pure blue, then the wind kicked 
up and brought drama. Looking at this on the monitor, it looks like 
a scene out of Dickens. It's the view across the river at the end of 
my street. This was way out of my comfort zone but I had fun. 
Thank you for challenging me!

Still LIfe With Sky by Jean Townsend

Hi Everybody,
My first post on the challenge blog, so happy to be a part of this --

"Scary Weather" by Gwen Bell

8 x 10 oil on canvas panel

We get some pretty scary weather here in Texas.
One minute the sky can be clear as a bell and the
next thing you know the tornado warnings are
going off. I tried to convey that feeling of
impending doom in this painting. Duck & Cover!

Wild Blue Yonder by Roxanne Spradlin

Wild Blue Yonder....4' x 3'.....oil....on gallery wrapped stretched canvas.

Here's close up view.

Oh, how I love West Texas! With it's big open range and endless blue sky. Simple, yet majestic!

Recently, I posted a smaller version, a study really. Angela's comment got me to thinking and I decided to paint it big! 4 feet x 3 feet...if I do say so myself it's a keeper. The iphone pic doesn't capture all it's glory but you get the jest of it. Thank's Angela!

Color My Trees by Kay Wyne

This painting has a misty/watercolor look to it. It is hanging at The Wine Therapist in Dallas right now. It is an oil painting, but does have a watercolor look to it. I am posting it because of the colorful sky. The artists reception was last night, but the show will hang until Dec. 12, 2010. Here is the info:

Yesterday was a reception at the Dutch Art Gallery for The Artists of Texas...wonderful art and fabulous artists were there. It was fun to finally meeting some of the artists who post on daily blogs. Gwen Bell was there, and even though we live a few miles apart, I had not met her in person. (I knew her art, but not the artist!) Ann Rogers came through the doors, and it was great to see her. I must say that I got distracted and did not get a chance to really visit with everyone. The turn-out was great. I amazed at the wonderful art... a really good art at the show. Thanks to Pam Massar for all of her hard work. If you missed the reception yesterday, here is the show info:

I have been away from my easel and blog for about two weeks....I was in an automobile accident and I was sidelined for a while. But I am back! I hope to be posting some new paintings. Have an artful day! Thanks for looking at my blog...Kay

The Bridge by Kay Wyne

The Bridge
Oil on 18" x 18" Gallery Wrap Canvas
This painting was inspired by a photograph my husband took as we were sitting in traffic ready to cross the the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. It was a clear, windy day and we had a great time traveling around the California coast! I had researched the color of the bridge...according to my findings, the bridge is painted with a Sherwin Williams color #6328, Fireweed. I went to a local Sherwin Williams to check out this Fireweed color....and I really don't think the bridge is actually Fireweed. According to the paint swatches, Fireweed is a deep, rusty brick red....almost brown. So I mixed my own colors to what I remember and according to our photographs. This painting has a new home in Plano, was a Christmas gift to a friend who traveled with us to California. Fun trip, good I hope that this painting will be a reminder of our trip when it is viewed.
