18" x 18" Oil on Heavy Duty Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Floral Landscape Painting

This painting was a total re-do for me.  I had an abstract
on the canvas, was totally not liking it.  So I switched 
gears and decided it would be a floral landscape...rather
abstract, with thick, thick paint.  I put it on the studio wall
immediately because I did not want to bump into the wet
paint.  I was very impulsive on this painting, and pulled
out some tools---no brushes.  I used a couple of palette
knives, some wipe-off instruments that are great for
scraping and drawing through the paint.  Thanks for
looking at this blog.  Contact Kay for purchasing info.

36" x 36" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Wildflower Landscape Painting
Today is the first day of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge....and yes, I am participating again!  I enjoy a challenge and since I am working on a landscape series, my theme is Wildflower Landscapes.  Be sure to check out all of the work Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days Paint Challenge.  This painting, Enchanting is now finished.  I reworked the clouds and flowers in the back ground.  I softened the sky with more paint and a large dry brush.  The flowers in the foreground are painted with thick, palette knife strokes...lots of texture.  Contact Kay for more information on this painting.  It is drying in the studio.  Thanks, Kay

30" x 24" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
This painting just found a new home in Dallas!  The colors are toned down and earthy compared to my usual palette.  Layers and layers of oils were applied with the palette knife so there is texture on the canvas.  This painting was part of the Horizon Series.  The sides are painted, so framing is optional....it is ready to hang!  Thanks for looking.....Contact Kay with any comments or questions concerning my art.  Stay cool.  KMW

30" x 30" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Rooster
This palette knife painting is fun, colorful and has lots of texture.  You can see the layers of paint, as it was applied with a knife.  You can't help but want to put your hands over the surface and feel the chunks of paint.  The paint is also on the sides of the stretcher bars, so framing is optional.  Contact Kay for more information on this painting.  Thanks for looking...Kay
