Martin Ranch Cow by Kay Wyne

Martin Ranch Cow
Oil on 12" x 12" Gallery Wrap Canvas
This cow needs a name. I photographed her last March when all of the artists at Studio Art and Soul went to John Martin's Ranch. The cows in the pasture were amazing...very colorful, full of personality great to watch. Here is my interpretation of what I saw grazing in the fields. I hope you enjoy this blog...if you would like to view more of my art, please go to my blog.

Northern Ireland by Carol Morgan

This is my submission to the Virtual Paintout that a couple of painters at our studio enjoy. It always amazes me that I'm able to find such lovely scenes on Google Earth. I've done N. Ireland, Florence, and Amsterdam. They have all been to my liking and make me long to travel there.

Sharon Hodges: "OK, you may rub my belly now", 12x24

Hmmmm. If you have a dog, this pose is instantly recognizable: on the back, spread eagle, ears flapping, ready for a belly rub! Our chocolate Lab, Sweet Georgia Brown Dawg, frequently assumes this position and just smiles and smiles until she gets our attention. My husband's 60th birthday is coming up, and I'm thinking this painting would be a nice gift....he LOVES this dog! This painting is done entirely with painting knives, and I enjoyed the process....I think I will try some more knife painting! If you would like to see more of my paintings, please visit my BLOG.
Yes, I am happy to do paintings of your pets, just email me. Thanks for viewing my art!

Lamb Chops by Kay Wyne

I was looking at this oil painting...I think I will paint another Lamb Chop, since this painting has recieved alot of comments. It is sold, but I may paint another lamb, but of course it won't be the same...maybe it will be related to Lamb Chops. It looks like we are going to have a good weekend in Dallas....sunny and cool. I hope to get to the studio and paint. Have an artful weekend!!! Thanks for viewing this blog.

Sharon Hodges: "Well, are you gonna share?", 11x14x2

I damaged my shoulder a few weeks ago....Holding a brush was actually painful, so I am painting with my left hand. This is challenging, but likely a very good exercise. It forces me to slow down, and frankly, I am pleased with this left handed painting. These folks were enjoying a spring day in Asheville, NC. I hope he shared the snack with his dog. To purchase this painting, please click the link below. This is painted on gallery canvas, so no need to frame. (Sold)

Sharon, Kay, Karen, Donna and Carol!

Sharon hodges: "Cowboy on 'Donut with Sprinkles' ", 36x36x2

I totally love the rodeo...the cowboys, the animals, the characters in the stands, the kids, the clowns, the whole big, crazy spectacle. I especially love the odd names of the bulls, and this one is no exception. Eight seconds is a lifetime if you are on the back of a really agitated, massive bull like this one. The cowboy did not win this engagement. This painting is 36x36x2, on gallery canvas, no need to frame. $900. To purchase, click the button below. To see more of my paintings, please visit my blog.

'Tea for Three' by Sharon Hodges, 14x11x2

This painting is from the tea I was preparing w/ Friend Donna's beautiful antique Fiestaware. Of course, the initial plan was to photograph it, then paint it, but a quick cup of hot tea was irresistable. I like the lemon wedges in this one. This painting is being shown at the Artists of Texas exhibition opening this Saturday at the Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, TX. Painted on gallery canvas, there is no need to frame. $150 + s/h.....Click below to purchase. If you would like to see more of my work, please visit my BLOG.

Leaning Tower of Teacups, 24x24

Another painting from the beautiful collection of antique Fiestaware that I borrowed from Friend Donna. The round handles on these early Fiesta pieces made the most interesting shadows. This painting is considerably more 'controlled' than much of my work, but I felt this was necessary for this composition. To purchase, use the BuyNow button below or email me. Additional works can be seen on my blog. Thanks for visiting.

We were blessed by these smiling faces peering into our door...some of the beautiful neighborhood childrne stopped by on their walk home from school. They love art and were just delightful...we hope they visit often!
