Art by Oklahoma Contemporary Equine Artist Jonelle T. McCoy "The Bandit Waits"

© "The Bandit Waits"

I named this painting "The Bandit Waits" because of the way the area around his eyes made me think of a Bandit mask. The light is late day in the golden and red colors of the very soon to be setting sun. This acrylic is painted on an 11"x14"x1.5" gallery wrap canvas and is available for sale through my home studio at the time this blog is being posted. Price is $175.00 + shipping. Maybe he will steal your heart and you will make him yours!

Art by Oklahoma Contemporary Equine Artist Jonelle T. McCoy "Stallion Strut"

© "Stallion Strut"
Still visiting 2010 at the end of that year with this one that initially had me stuck, the horse was fine, it was the background that was bothering me. I worked with it some and ended up with the finished painting, and I liked how it turned out. This painting was something of a stepping stone for me, it's interesting how I can look back and pick out a painting that gives me a clear sense of a breakthrough, or change that I liked, or an idea for a series. "Stallion Strut" sold and went up to live in Canada with a collector that has a few of my paintings.

Art by Oklahoma Contemporary Equine Artist Jonelle T. McCoy "Pas de Deux"


Here's another from early in my painting start in 2010, an experiment using both white and black lines in a single painting to bring out two different looks in the horses, and also I was using marble colors and patterns for my backgrounds. This acrylic was titled "Pas de Deux" for the dance these two horses were sharing with each other. This painting is sold.

Abstract Horse Art by Oklahoma Contemporary Equine Artist Jonelle T. McCoy "Wind" Element Series 2010

© "Wind" Element Series 2010 
Fabulous day of riding again with friends at the Spring semi-annual Almosta Farm shindig. Turned out to be a hot day with high winds with two outings on a different paso fino mare for each time, and it was so enjoyable. I'm posting an early series painting that I'd done in 2010 after starting back into my painting that reflects how today's weather was- full of "Wind"! This was done on heavy duck cotton with acrylics, and is sold.

Abstract Horse Art by Oklahoma Contemporary Equine Artist Jonelle T. McCoy "#27 Summer 2013 60 Series"

© "#27 of 2013 Summer 60 Series"
This painting speaks my feelings for today quite well- feelings of exuberance- not only did I have a wonderful time for the first day of a horse riding get together weekend with dear friends, my internet that has been down for several of the past few days is back in service. So hopefully it will stay functioning so I can continue to post, connect with everyone and write my blogs, I missed being able to do that! Tomorrow is another day of riding and sharing with friends. And what better way to go than on a paso fino- I love my smooth riding horses so much! #27, is one of my Summer 2013 60's Series, and one I decided to keep around.

Abstract Horse Art by Oklahoma Contemporary Equine Artist Jonelle T. McCoy "Tension"

© "Tension"
Yesterday was just one of those days I never want to have again, nothing went right, problems arose that I've still not been able to fix or address with positive results. I was in a stressed mood and wired for implosion- I was so glad it was over when I laid down to sleep! Today there have been a few lingering troubles that worry me, I still have the biggest issue to resolve, but I have hope to make some headway. So to be honest- I'm in a state of high tension, so therefore, I am posting the acrylic painting "Tension" for today. This has been painted with acrylics on a 24"x 18"x 1.5" gallery wrap canvas. It is available at the Sweet Earth Studio Mingle gallery in Shawnee, Ok. Contact:

Abstract Horse Art by Oklahoma Contemporary Equine Artist Jonelle T. McCoy "Jewel"

© "Jewel"
Just recently I got the chance to see this painting (and a few others) in it's collectors home. It was beautifully displayed in a room where guests can see it while grouped together. It was perched on a very attractive solid wood easel that had been found in a second hand store that offered higher end merchandise. I was so pleased to see it as a focal point in that room. It's really meaningful to me to get to see a painting that's passed out of my hands again to have the chance to study it again in person rather than by looking at it through my image files. I wish I could do this with all my paintings. Ah, the travels I could take and enjoy- and especially the ones in other countries and overseas. Maybe someday........ "Jewel" sort of looks like stained glass, it was painted with acrylics on a gallery wrap canvas. I also think it has the colors of Spring and of Easter eggs! Happy Easter everyone!

Abstract Horse Art by Oklahoma Contemporary Equine Artist Jonelle T. McCoy "Rise Up"

© "Rise Up"
This painting, "Rise Up", evokes a warm, positive, bright view on what's to come for the day. Some people embrace the days beginning with high energy and get right into living it, some are not that way, a cup of coffee, a little while to wake up is needed. I am not a morning person so the rare days I wake up with a fire under my bitt to start off with is a treat. I usually get my gears going after coffee and mid to late day. "Rise Up" has been painted with acrylics on a standard 11"x 14" canvas, and is available through my home studio for $150.00 plus shipping.

I attribute this painting as the start of my horses and flower series. At my 2013 solo show in Shawnee, Oklahoma in the Sweet Earth Studio Mingle gallery (Sweet Earth Studio) this one was the first to sell, and I was a bit surprised, but it opened my eyes to the success of the combination and how I enjoyed and still enjoy pairing the two elements together. I've used poppy flowers in other work too. This was painted with acrylics.

Abstract Horse Art by Oklahoma Contemporary Equine Artist Jonelle T. McCoy introducing the coming Summer 2014 60 Series




Last year I started a Summer 60 Series, it was a great success- fun, creative and a really rewarding challenge for me. I used 6 inch square gallery wraps then, for this years 2014 Summer Series I'll be using 6"x 8"x 1.5" gallery wrap canvases. This will run for 60 straight days, paintings sold for $68 each and I'll be donating $8 of each sale to 501(c) horse rescue efforts (shipping extra). Last year I donated the portion of sales as they sold, this year to keep it simpler I will donate a lump sum from the sale of paintings- each buyer will be listed on the receipt of payment. If you have a request for a design I am accepting a limited amount of those now, they must be pre-paid for me to carry out requests. I'm going to be exploring shapes, colors and varying mediums. They will come ready to hang. This series will officially start off Friday May 23rd (on my birthday!) and run until July 21st posting at 8AM each day God willing. Each days featured painting will be posted here with my contact info. Pictured are a few examples of last years paintings. I hope you help me to raise $480 to donate! Thank you!

Start the Sky First?? No Way! New Oil Paintings by Deborah Flood

 

Desert Cowgirl 8 x 6 Medium Web view

Desert Cowgirl 8 x 6 Oil on Canvas SOLD, to the UK.

So, I just read on another Social Media, written by a Gallery, “Start the sky first”.

Hmmm….gee…I stopped painting the sky first as of late! I always used to start with the top of the canvas and move down to the horizon. Always the same way, the same results, the same…same….same….

Lately, I’ve made the decision to get back into my oils. Literally, some days (with it all over my hands…hair…face…and probably inside me too!).
I’m creating some little study pieces, 5 x 7 , 8 x 10 and such.

I’ve limited my palette to three colors and a white. It is quite freeing, and not constricting at all. No color choices to make. I mix my own!

What I start with is an under painting, that hopefully will glow through, covering the whole canvas. Then using a wet into wet technique I add my shadows and find my subject matter, and then create shadows upon the land. I find dark shadows, light shadows and work and blend. Then I take that brush with some of those earth colors on it, and I start working the sky. That sky takes on the reflections of the earth, as in real life. The skies aren’t that typical “Blue” we think they are when we look up at the sky. The clouds often reflect lots of color and all that dust that gets kicked up during the day. It’s all up there.

So what does this do for my painting? Well, it creates a uniform painting, like it all flows and belongs in the same image, like it should.

Here are a few more works I’ve been creating with this method. Each sky is a bit different, with a different mood, different glow and different meaning for the story being told.

Enjoy, and if you are interested in making a purchase on the available paintings, give me a holler! debflood@debfloodart.com

It is hard to know when to call a painting finished, sometimes it just comes down to not knowing what else to do and letting it ride.  Sometimes that is good and prevents overworking something and leaving some freshness to the paint strokes, other times I just don't know.  I keep thinking of what I might do differently and nothing is "dawning" on me so perhaps it is done.  There are parts of this painting that I love and some parts that I only like or are indifferent to- is that enough?

Abstract Horse Art by Oklahoma Contemporary Equine Artist Jonelle T. McCoy "Twist t he Sun Fish"

© "Twist the Sun Fish"
So yesterday I posted about the Oklahoma grass fires, well today I will cover tornado's. Rain is good, rain is life- here where drought and heat are so difficult as in many states, the rain is so needed, but with it come threat of severe weather, especially starting now at this time of year. This painting titled "Twist the Sun Fish" not only expresses the twisters, it also ties in with what they call a twisting storm of a bucking bronc, they call when they buck up high a sun fish. I know I for one do NOT like a bucking horse, nor do I like tornado's, but with both, I am fascinated to watch. This painting was done with acrylics and is sold.

Abstract Horse Art by Oklahoma Contemporary Equine Artist Jonelle T. McCoy "Oklahoma Grass Fire"

© "Oklahoma Grass Fire"
After a season of drought a few years back wildfires were a serious issue for Oklahoman's, it was frightening and there was so much loss and devastation. Nothing quite brings that feeling to light than having one near your home, as we did. Luckily I saw it before anyone else and got help without any serious loss or damage. My resulting way to express my feelings was through this acrylic painting, "Oklahoma Grass Fire" which is sold. We continue to have these problems with high winds, dry air and dry foliage. I pray for rain- just rain though, not severe weather like we experience! But that's another story and painting...........

Horse 31 Stopping for Water
9 x 12 inches Oil on Canvas.
Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

I loved the colors in this horse painting. It is like a plate full of veggies with deep rich vibrant hues contrasting and playing with the eye as it discovers the horses.  Still getting stronger at this to try it on a larger surface. That may be next tomorrow.

Today is Palm Sunday, rich with meaning for our family and filled with memories of past Easter seasons. 

Also, I want to add a Happy Birthday today to my youngest brother.... a joy to our family from the day he was born.

One of my favorite images is my Dad and Lady L on Dad's last Easter with us in this lifetime. This was in 2011. My dad loved this great grand-daughter and was always smiling when he saw her. 


Now when they drew near to Jerusalem and came to Bethphage, to the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village in front of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord needs them,’ and he will send them at once.” This took place to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet, saying, “Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold, your king is coming to you, humble, and mounted on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.’”
Matthew 21:1-11

© "Don't Forget Me"
Today is my husbands birthday, and I felt today's painting was a good choice not only in the title, because I will not forget him nor his birthday ever, and the model for this painting is his heart horse, our gorgeous buckskin dun Paso Fino stallion Adonis. He loves that horse so much, and it's easy to know why if you saw him, he's magnificent. But to me, my husband is my heart. I love you Robert! Happy Birthday!
"Don't Forget Me" was painted with acrylics and is sold.

Abstract Horse Art by Oklahoma Contemporary Equine Artist Jonelle T. McCoy "Snow Dot Com"

© "Snow Dot Com"
When it comes to horses there's more than just my love for the Paso Fino breed, I love color. The more exotic the better, the aesthetics just add to my appreciation of the horse. I'm a big fan of the pintos, which the Paso Fino breed has, and I have always liked the Appaloosa spots. They are so fun and so unique, like fingerprints, not one is marked the same. So you will see an Appy pop up every so often in my work, like this little fun piece I called "Snow Dot Com" This acrylic has been sold.

In The Pink
9 x 12 inches Oil on Canvas.
Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

Yes, so Lady L was visiting and we always visit the color Pink. I used the same new approach with this painting as I did the first two.  It truly is a 'freeing' feeling when working over these small canvas. Not sure how it will work on a larger horse painting.

Terry is off restriction now with his eyes. He is building square foot gardening in our back yard. We bought all the organic peat moss, organic compost and the vermiculite to fill each of the four beds with. Lady L will be over helping with the planting and hopefully later with harvesting and eating.  I am making out a list today of what we are growing.  Pumpkins are at the top of Lady's L's list. We may have to grow those at her house. I remember my mother growing watermelons in the dogrun out in the backyard when we were growing up. She had stopped using the dog run for the dogs.. .it was a wide one with a white picket type fence and inside she planted the watermelons.  Personally I love honey dew and cantaloupe too!

So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith. 
Galatians 3:26

Second in the "out of the box" series still refining a different approach to the canvas and building up my determination and courage to do a very very large one soon.  Soft colors and a different palette create the textured back drop for these two pony pals standing in a field blooming with flowers.

Such gorgeous weather.. and I spent most of yesterday in bed with a kidney stone... but the best part of the day was sitting outside around six enjoying the warmer weather, and watching Terry putter around the back yard. He goes off restriction today, so I know he has many plans ahead for the day. Paddy got a haircut yesterday too.. I need to take his picture for you! Will try to do that... and take pictures of the flower Terry is planning on finishing up in the backyard. He has nursed 13 rose bushes through the winter and it is time to plant.

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20

I went climbed out of the box on the next few pieces I will be posting. Nothing like going one direction and ending up 180 degrees the other way.
Soft colors blending and building creating an enticing surface to explore. This first one in this new approach is a single horse, painted while the winds were blowing about 65 mph outside in the storms we have had.

SO I named this one Windstorm. In the middle of painting this the storm carried on outside my studio this past weekend.

For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! Romans 5:10

Horse 26 Standoff at at the Brazos River, Horse Paintings by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Standoff at the Brazos River
9 x 12 inches Oil on Canvas.

Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

The deep dark shadows of the woods around the Brazos River flowing through Hill Country in Texas. This area is steeped with so much history you could fill hundreds of books. Shafts of golden sunlight cut through the trees and glisten at the riverbank. The lead horse reflects the greens and blues of the river as the light bounces off of it.

What is happening in your life that bounces and reflects off of you onto others? As an artist I want to believe that my 'free' spirit weaves itself into my paintings and work. I want something deeper than just 'reflection.' I do not want the work to be lacking.


Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds,  because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.  Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-4

Purple is my favorite color and along with many of my horses and flowers series green makes a showing along with the purple that I love in this one. Indie is one of the stars in my mare herd, and if you are observant, you will find a star in this painting. Hint to find it- use what you see with. This painting is sold.
