M.Allison Original Contemporary Abstract Oil Painting 'Texas Hot'


Texas Hot
36 X 36 oil, graphite
I have done this same theme of Texas and longhorns, cows
and the oil industry several times, but in this one I
decided to heat it up with vibrant colors and some excitement.
I think I like it!

M.Allison 'Flowers in the Forest' Original Contemporary Abstract Oil Painting

Flowers in the Forest
48 X48 oil and oil pastel

M.Allison   allison@mallisonartist

What's it called - Sfumato?  Well it's the blurring of edges
in a painting and I love to paint using this technique.  To me it gives the
illusion of reality or the illusion of abstract.  Read what you 
want to and your imagination can run away with you!

M.Allison 'My Foggy Beach' Original Oil Painting

My Foggy Beach
36 X 48 oil


I love the beach even when it's Galveston.  It's not
the prettiest, but it's ours and we claim it!  I don't live 
so close to Galveston anymore, but I do live by a beautiful
lake in the Texas hill country and I feel so lucky.  Lots
of different scenery here and soon I'll be painting the lake
and all it has to offer, and maybe even a few little bambies!

'Long Stems' Fanciful Contemporary Floral Oil Painting by Texas Artist M.Allison

'Long Stems'
30 X 40 oil, graphite

This was taken from a photo and stylized and re-stylized
to create obscurity and abstract shapes.  I'm using my 9B
graphite pencil more and more these days - so fun to scribble!

Wandering Pears Contemporary Abstract Realistic Oil Painting by Texas Artist M.Allison

Wandering Pears
30 X40 oil


OK, so this painting was a trifle difficult!  I painted and painted,
and seemed to be getting nowhere.  In frustration, I just took my
trusty palette knife and scraped the many layers of paint off and
was left with a much lighter and ethereal painting.  Well, it was
much better and I added some detail and there you have it!  My 
sister came over and loved it (crazy what others may think) !
Let it be and low and behold it SOLD!  You never know!

Cityscape/Landscape Abstract Oil Painting by Texas Artist M.Allison

48 X 50 Oil
contact me:

I have created a new underpainting that creates a background to work with
showing a layered look.  This will be dubbed as one in my 
'Abstract Landscape' series.  I want this one for myself and I have a
fabulous frame that my ever so talented brother-in-law made for me
years ago.  Sounds crazy because I could certainly sell this and
paint another one for myself which I just might do!
I've also used a little palette knife for pop.

Abstract, Contemporary Landscape Oil and Metallic Painting by Texas Artist M.Allison

And the Sun Reflects
40 X 40 oil, metallic
contact me:

Well...I have been away from blogging for awhile, but am back!
It's not from lack of painting, but sometimes funny things just get in the way.
I've begun to use metallics again and to me it just adds a little elegance!
