Abstract Expressionist Palette Knife Art Painting “The Conversation“ by International Abstract Artist Kimberly Conrad



14"x11"  Palette Knife Acrylic on 140 lb Watercolor Paper.

Frames beautifully in a standard 11'x14" frame from your local frame, art or craft shop, no custom framing expense.

$117 Purchase HERE

"The Conversation" was my painting for Day #12 in the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge I am doing with fellow artist Leslie Saeta.


So here is my theme for the challenge this year......This past year I redecorated my dining room, and collected artwork in various styles by my favorite artists from around the world, but all in a similar color palette and the result was lovely.

Actually, it all began with a beautiful painting of a woman in a cafe that I purchased in Cortona, Italy, which became the focal point of the room.

I also collected two still life pieces, an impressionist landscape, a floral piece, and an abstract expressionism piece, all in a similar palette.

That is my inspiration for this challenge. Each week, I will choose a palette and complete 7 paintings of multiple styles within that palette.

I will try to create pieces that would exhibit beautifully together , but can also stand alone.
We shall see what shows up!!

Original Lake Powell Landscape Painting "The End of Davis Gulch" by Nancee Jean Busse Painter of the American West

                               


 Lake Powell is a magically beautiful place. The Glen Canyon dam was completed in 1966 in spite of the impassioned protests of environmentalists, naturalists, historians, and archeologists. There is still much controversy, and it is estimated that approximately 8% of the Colorado River’s water is lost due to evaporation and seepage from Lake Powell. Lake Powell is a popular recreation and houseboating destination now. My husband and I went to Lake Powell in 2008. We floated into the silent canyons on glassy, still water, thinking of what was beneath us. The skies were crystal clear and the night sky was black and filled with stars that were reflected on the still water. Davis Gulch is one of the hundreds of canyons in Lake Powell. This was where the final sighting of Everett Reuss took place in 1934.

Abstract Expressionist Palette Knife Art Painting "January's Song" by International Abstract Artist Kimberly Conrad



24"x24"x1.5" Palette Knife Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped Canvas
Click HERE for purchase info.

What I'm loving about this 30 Day Challenge is all the playtime in the studio to just experiment. I am trying not to "pour" this week, which is my current method (primarily) of painting, but to go back to the palette knife, and various other tools.
 This was a fun exercise-it pretty much represents my January...So much to do- it's all equally important, I seem to be shifting gears daily! It was hard sticking to this week's chosen palette- I really like bold color.


"January's Song" (Bladeworks Series) is painting #11 in the 2017

Abstract Mixed Media Painting "Having Fun" by Colorado Mixed Media Abstract Artist Carol Nelson

"Having Fun" 24x24 triptych by Carol Nelson
The title of this piece is what I was doing in my studio. I found these three canvases, and decided I would just play around with some heavy body acrylics and HAVE FUN.

Of course, it wasn't all fun. I revised them several times before I was happy with them.

I am proud of myself for adding the blue passages because that's one color that doesn't show up in my work very often.

For more information about this triptych, click here to go to my website.

"Cherish This Life", Original Mixed Media Painting by Colorado Artist, Donna L. Martin

"Cherish This Life"




We recently lost someone very special to us.  My Father-in-Law, Mikey, was Italian, to the core.  He grew up in North Denver, in what was known as little Italy.  He worked at an Italian Bakery for much of his life and he fought in WWII, in Normandy.  He knew the Italian Mob Bosses in Denver, worked hard to raise his family, and he loved to gamble in Vegas.  He was pretty good at it too. He also loved to go dancing.  He went dancing almost every Saturday night up until about 4 months ago.  

I know if we could talk to him again, he would tell us to live this life and appreciate it, because it is short.  As I've said before, this life is just a whisper of time.  So this is for you, Mikey, for a life well-lived and well-loved...we will cherish you and the life you lived forever.

This piece was created as a reminder to "Cherish This Life".  It was done with many layers of paint, inks, and painted paper.  The heart in the middle was cut from a vintage ceiling tile.  When the light catches it, you can see the hints of iridescent gold paint sprinkled throughout the painting.  The words, "Cherish This Life" are embedded into the painting.  It is framed in a gold and black floater frame.

Western Landscape Painting, Grand Canyon "WOTAN'S THRONE" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse



This is one of the more spectacular views from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. My husband I were there in 2014 with good friends. When I painted this I needed the comfort of painting something small and purely representational. It's like putting together a jigsaw puzzle; I put it together one small piece at a time! And it represents a wonderful memory of good times with friends.
