© "Acceptance"


Acceptance. (Wipikidia) Acceptance in human psychology is a person's assent to the reality of a situation, recognizing a process or condition (often a negative or uncomfortable situation) without attempting to change it, protest.

So how do I interpret the meaning of acceptance? I view it as a philosophy of being open minded to the differences in humans ways of life. I know there are other ways of seeing things and doing things than my own, and I try to let it be. I see a growing intolerance for many lately especially in this state that stem from hate, fear, dislike, ego, superiority complex- and I'm dismayed. In this case, I do not have acceptance of the suppression of others. And religion has been the foremost driving factor and reason used to increase the pressure. I like to think I have an open mind, a tolerance, a love and giving viewpoint for others who's choices or personal make-up and lifestyles that aren't the same as mine. Live and let live. When it comes to horses, you can browbeat them into submission or teach them what you want with guidance, and love. I find their acceptance of me has much more meaning and significance when I treat them as feeling, sensitive, intelligent beings and with respect. I pray for the world to become more accepting of others so there is more positive energy, and love to go around.
"Acceptance" is an acrylic on 16"x12"x1.5" gallery wrap canvas. It is available for purchase at $300.00.

April 15th was the last day to turn in taxes. It's a day of many things: relief (they're DONE!!!), angst (how am I going to pay this?), excitement (alright! I'm getting money back!). I finished mine up last month, and paid in for the first time in awhile, but that's just how it is. I chose the acrylic painting "Opera" from my Rhythm and Hooves Series because the emotion expressed can be interpreted several ways. It's meant to imply the booming big voices of the opera singer, but it could be laughter, it could be a scream, it could be a yell. I imagine what you see could be a reflection of your state of mind at the time. I get a smile when I see it, I find it amusing. I hope your tax experience was not bad, and you get some $$$ back to play with, maybe even to invest- in art!

© "Zero to 60"

A long time favorite of many I had a love/hate relationship with. Took me three days after I finished it to warm up to it, and that warmth just grew and grew. I had it professionally framed in bright yellow and red which set it off beautifully. Shown, it won high awards. It was my husbands favorite and he requested I keep it to hang for our personal enjoyment for a quite awhile, then I convinced him to let it be sold since he found a new favorite of my work to hang. This vibrant and colorful acrylic painting can be seen for purchase by visiting the Kasum Contemporary Fine Art gallery here
Sometimes life tosses us a curve ball that at first we think is a bad throw, but it's just an angle to get around, not a straight path. I still have trouble getting past some of those angles, but that makes life interesting, don't you think?

© "Blooming Everywhere" SOLD

 I can feel it! The world is ready to burst open and come back to life! 

There has been days of rain, water puddles everywhere, ponds filled to overflowing, green is showing up, flowers are blooming, trees are budding and some have flowered. Growth, and new life bursting and blooming everywhere! Oh how I love Spring! The color comes back, the sun shines longer, the days get warmer- everything about this time of year delights me! I was even surprised by the appearance of a crocus, I haven't seen one of those bloom in years at my farm. 

Do you feel this way too? Is this your favorite time of year? Indeed, each season has it's pros and cons. Along with the warmer weather comes storms, so far the rain has been gentle, but look out, it will get dicey soon here in Oklahoma- but that's a subject for another time. For now I'll just put on my muck boots and who knows, maybe I'll revisit a childhood activity of finding rain runoff and changing the way it flows. Ahhhh..... the simple things, the wonderful things.

Original Colorado Landscape Painting With Horse, Rider Sheep and Dog , "High Country" by Painter of the American West Nancee Jean Busse

I love painting the Meeker Sheepdog Trials. At the far end of the competition field the sheep wranglers release the sheep at the beginning of each run. That’s what this painting depicts. I love the colors of northern Colorado in autumn; brilliant sun on yellow fields, blue mountains, clear skies… Colorado at it’s most rare and beautiful!

Art by Oklahoma Abstract Contemporary Equine Artist Jonelle T. McCoy


© "Gold Leaf"

This painting is an interesting blend of several techniques, uniting acrylic paint with acrylic texture medium for the raised lines and using acrylic spray paints with both positive and negative stencil shapes to make the leaves. I leaned a bit stronger on my scenic painting techniques and style to create this one.  
Here where I am (central Oklahoma) there aren't any sugar maple trees like where I grew up in Upstate NY. Their shape is a strong trigger of nostalgia for my years in that area. This painting's bold design and creative use of the negative space brings it all together for a strong finished piece. Lastly, the limited color palette completes the whole concept supporting the idea and the name. 
"Gold Leaf" is painted on a 36"x36"x1.5" gallery wrap canvas, and is available at the Kasum Contemporary Fine Art gallery in OKC. Contact Tony for more info here

Original Western Landscape,Equine, Cowboy Painting "Days End" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West

This has been my year of painting the things that fill my soul with loveliness and beauty. The photo reference I used for this painting is one I took up in Kalispell a few years ago. It WAS the end of a long June day, and everyone was tired and ready to go home and call it a day. As the sun was setting and the hands were chatting quietly, these two horses reached out to one another with a nuzzle, and nickered softly. It was all perfectly beautiful. 


This painting won third place in 2-D art at the Women Artists of the West show “WAOWed in San Diego." 44th Annual Women Artists of the West National Juried Exhibition at the Women’s Museum of California, San Diego, CA. May 2 – May 31, 2014.

Original Horse and Cowboy Painting "Trust" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse

                                                  

It was a long winter. My beloved Dad died, after a difficult final battle. The weather was atypically cold and dreary. The eldercare for both of my parents was, at times, exhausting. During that time, I would look through my photo library for inspiration; any kind of inspiration. I did find inspiration there, in old photos of more lighthearted times, photos of our children when they were young and carefree, bucolic summer vacations, and photos of the wildlife I love so much. There was one particular photo, though, that stood out and I knew it was time to paint my version of it. The photograph depicted an old hand and his horse, at the end of a hard day. Both were weary and ready for rest. The long light of late afternoon shafted across a meadow and illuminated both of them in soft, bright warmth. Their quiet, trusting relationship was evident. At the end of a long, hard day, they had each other.
