Original Heron, Red Rocks Landscape Painting "Red Rocks;Blue Heron" by Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West

                                               
The canyons in Lake Powell are full of wonder and mystery. My husband and I were floating back from Davis Gulch and this blue heron followed our course for a while, perching on rocks and observing as we drifted by. Beautiful day; beautiful memory.

Equine Art, Wild Horse Painting,"The Wild One" by Nancee Jean Busse ,Painter of the American West


I photographed a horse roundup outside of Cortez in May. There was one horse who simply wouldn't behave! She was everywhere she wasn't supposed to be, in spite of every attempt to wrangle her into going along with the herd. She simply ran for the pleasure of running, even if it was in cloud of the cowboy's curses! I liked her! I'll paint her again!

Original Western Landscape Painting "Working The Release Pen" by Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West

                    

 A few years ago I was given permission to photograph the sheep handlers working the release pen at the Meeker International Sheepdog Trials. It was fascinating! I watched as the border collies and cowboys and horses wrangled the unruly Meeker sheep, gathering them, penning them, and releasing them for each sheepdog participating in the trials. Working the Release Pen won the People’s Choice award at the 2006 Meeker Classic International Art Contest.

Original Western Landscape,Equine, Cowboy Painting "Day's 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.

Still Life Flower Painting "Glad" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse

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.

Still Life Floral Painting,Flower Art "Radiant Orchid-2" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse,



It's spring! I wanted to paint flowers; just for the joy of painting color. And just for fun, I wanted to use the Pantone Color of the Year for 2015: Radiant Orchid. I loved the color and loved the idea of incorporating such a rich, vibrant shade into a still life.

Contemporary Abstract Bird Painting "Bird Totem 1" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse

I was painting bird after bird for an upcoming show with a sandhill crane theme and needed a break! I staple-gunned a piece of canvas on to the back of bookcase in my studio and began painting freely. It makes sense that a bird emerged; after all, that's what I had been painting for months. But what also emerged was pure, delightful color. The blues of the sky, the yellows of sunshine, the reds of heart's blood, and violet-y purples of night sky. ALL birds have a totemic quality for me, but this one, part raven, part harpy, and part serpent is a good reminder to look up, be happy, and remember that the world is full of color and the sky full of life.

Original Still Life Floral Painting "Under The Surface" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse

                                 

 I belong to local CSA. When we pick up our weekly allotment of produce, sometimes we are allowed to pick a bouquet of flowers from an unruly patch of Colorado wildflowers. I gathered this armful of blooms, brought them home, and placed them in a plain glass vase and put them on my windowsill. I loved them! The star of the show for me, though, was how beautiful and delicate the stems under the water’s surface looked. The background is a series of glazes, all whites, off-whites, beiges, pale pinks, and browns. The flowers are, well… flowers. This painting received an honorable mention in the Artist’s Magazine annual competition: 7800 entries–18 winners. Even though the original sold fairly quickly, the prints are wonderful!

 This painting is sold, but prints are available in multiple sizes HERE

Original Still Life Lily Painting by "Lilies on the Windowsill" Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse



When I buy fresh flowers I place them into a clear vase of some kind and photograph them in a variety of settings. i love the way the stems look through the glass and water. I love to discover where the light refracts, and how the light streams through the delicate petals. When I looked at the photos of this arrangement, I was pleased to see all of the purples and magentas and how the light shafted through the bouquet in places.
