Contemporary Impressionist Landscape Painting, “Yellow Hillside” by Colorado Fine Artist Jody Ahrens

An intriguing little stand of Black Timber thrives because their roots are anchored deep into cracks in the rocks. As decomposition occurs, rich soil is created allowing tiny plants to thrive. This golden hillside is in the process of evolving. Some of the rocks have been covered by a new layer of humic compost.

Original Equine Painting "Time Traveler" by Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West

The horse is an American Western icon. They existed in the Western Hemisphere for millions of years until an extinction approximately 13,000 years ago. They were introduced back onto the Western Hemisphere by the European explorers. The First People embraced the beauty, usefulness, heart and soul of the horse into their lives. When I painted Time Traveler I juxtaposed the beautiful Paint horse with the crimson background of petroglyphs. I painted this with a sense of gratitude for the combined gift of helpfulness, grace, and beauty of the horse.

Contemporary Impressionist Landscape Painting,Fine Art Oil Painting,“Hibernation” by Colorado Contemporary Fine Artist Jody Ahrens


The deer and elk migrated weeks ago to the warmer valley below. The animals that stay behind will find a cozy place under the snow to hibernate, fish will live comfortably under the ice and aspens shed their leaves. Occasionally a wind breaks the winter silence as it whistles through the tree tops. The tall pines sway back and forth, adding a soft rhythmic creaking to the gentle sounds of Winter.

Hawk, Bird Painting, Wildlife Art "High and Dry" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West

 

During the winter, we empty the stock tank and put the brake on the windmill. At that point, it becomes a lofty perch for the birds. The ravens love it, the starlings love it, and the hawks love it! From the windmill they can see the entirety of the surrounding high desert property and all the little creatures who live here. Mice, packrats, quail, dove, chipmunks, and kangaroo rats make a nourishing meal for a good hunter. By spring the windmill has been much shat upon, is a bit stiff, and is ready to be set free to sing in the western Colorado breeze. But for a few months each year it holds its peace and becomes a boon to winged hunters.

Still Life, Flower, Water "Surprise at the Stock Tank" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse



Hawk, Bird Painting, Wildlife Art "High and Dry" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West Out back of our house is an old corral, windmill, and stock tank. Our land is no longer a working ranch, so our stock tank is for our enjoyment and the pleasure of passing deer, coyotes, bobcat, and birds, birds, birds. We’ve even constructed ways for small animals to climb up to take a drink, climb down, or climb out of the tank if they fall into it. It’s really a wonderful piece of our lives. Every once in a while we put some water plants into the tank to see what will happen. This painting depicts one of those times when the water lilies bloomed. Against the green water and with the reflection of the windmill, I thought it was a spectacular thing of beauty!

Contemporary Impressionist Landscape Painting, Fine Art Oil Painting,“No City Lights” by Colorado Contemporary Fine Artist Jody Ahrens


This lovely meadow is on the outskirts of a community that is still blessed with lots of natural open space. It’s horse country … it’s fishing country or just simply meandering in the riparian areas on foot. At night, there are a jillion stars … and out here, a jillion is a real number.

Landscape Painting, County Fair "The Halcyon Days" Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West

FRESH OFF THE EASEL

I find that, when the world seems dreary, painting something full of cheer with a color-saturated palette is good medicine. Even though this painting was time-consuming and visually complex, it reminded me of summer days gone by. When the kids were young we lived behind the Mesa County Fairgrounds. Strolling the midway was an almost-daily ritual. The sights and sounds, movement and color enchanted the kids. Carnival booths, prize-winning sows, nausea-inducing rides, bunnies, and billy goats! YES, please!

I belong to a local CSA, an organic cooperative farm in my community. Not only do we receive a share of delicious produce each week, we get flowers, too! These gorgeous, elegant gladiolas graced my home for just under a week. I had to paint them! I painted this still life in warm, summertime sunset colors.

Contemporary Landscape Painting, Fine Art Oil Painting “Yellow Pranksters” by Colorado Contemporary Fine Artist Jody Ahrens

High Country Aspen trees seem to play pranks on the seasons. They are in sync during the summer months with harmonizing soft green colors. But as soon as fall begins, they spring forth with a bright array of yellow, orange and red colors to trick us into thinking maybe summer has not gone away. But the joke is on them as people flock in droves to enjoy their spectacular show.

Contemporary Landscape, Painting, Abstract Art "EARLY MORNING" by Intuitive Artist Joan Fullerton




This painting is part of my new series "Luminous Dimensions"



If you can suggest an idea rather than fully explain it from a customary perspective, what you have is more poetic. "A poem was a box for your soul. that was the point. It was the place where you could save bits of yourself, and shake out your darkest feelings. While I was writing, I would forget myself and everyone else: poetry made me feel part of something noble and beautiful and bigger than me. All the images and rhymes wrestled into place, then they would surprise me by surging through me, like songs I knew by heart." Andrea Ashworth, Once in a House on Fire Framed in a gold floater frame; ready to hang.
