Elsie - sold

16" x 20" Oil on Canvas
Contemporary Cow Painting
Elsie now lives in Connecticut with a very lovely family, perched up on a fireplace mantel.  I started a similar painting at the studio today, because I have been missing Elsie.  She had great color, texture and character.  The canvas that I started painting on today is larger, but same portrait proportions.  This is one of my favorite subjects to paint....the cow has such personality, individuality, and panache!  I hope to post a new contemporary cow in the next day or two....Thanks for looking....Kay

Coop The Chicken - Sold

Coop the Chicken
30" x 30" oil on canvas
This is one of my favorite paintings....a city chick. When John and I visited the Dallas Chicken Coup Tour, we found many feathered friends to photograph and admire. I liked Coop because she has attitude. I have a couple of rooster paintings started in the studio, and hope to post them soon. Thanks for viewing this blog. Kay

Best Day

Best Day
16" x 20" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Landscape Painting
On a recent trip to Santa Fe, John Wyne and I took the High Road to Taos and drove through a wonderful part of New Mexico.  The long and winding road took us through some amazing countryside.  One of my favorite things to photograph is old churches, missions and cemeteries.  The wildflowers were scattered through the cemetery, which was located next to a country church on top of a hill.  The old stones and graves have character, making it a great subject to paint.  The day after we returned to Dallas from the trip, I had to paint the scene while it was fresh in my mind.
Here it is framed up in a new Randy Higbee Gallery Frame.  The moulding is 3 1/2 inches wide, so total framed piece is 22 1/2" x 26 1/2" with a rubbed grey stain and gold lip. This painting is hanging in the studio...if you have any questions or comments, please contact ME.  Thanks for looking at this blog....have an artful day.  Kay

I See Everything
36" x 18" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Piggy Painting
I photographed this very large pig on a farm in the midwest.  I loved his coloring and his eyes...although you can't see them, I know he was seeing everything around him.  He filled up the canvas, with his imposing size.  This painting is at the studio and is looking for a new home.  Contact Kay for purchasing info.  Thanks for looking...Kay
