Italian Cypress Study

Wishing I were in Tuscany

My friend and artist, Niki Gulley has been in France and Italy conducting Art Treks this summer.  She did a painting on location similar to this, so I decided to pretend I was there, as well.  I felt like I was part of the group!  I painted this on a 9 x 12 oil canvas panel with a palette knife only.

I have been experimenting with textures a lot lately.  Smooth vs. rough, light/dark, various colors and so on.  Most of you know, I love color.

Looking for something?

Milessa Murphy Stewart

The best paintings create a story. My stories have happy endings.

Milessa was born a big city girl in a dry, desolate area of Texas where the only trees she saw were mesquite and the only things to climb was her horse. She remembers a lot of brown but that did not stop her from dreaming in beautiful, bold color. She paints in a playful and visual style.
