The title of this painting, Looking Forward To Tomorrow is perfect for today's post! Tomorrow (Saturday) is the start of Kaleidoscope at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas. Here is the info below, and if you can't come to the demos or reception, stop in the gallery to view the new pieces during the month of February.
Thanks for looking at this blog and the art posted.....Kay Wyne
This is a fun painting that I started, and can't wait to get back to it. My studio mate Selena was cleaning out a drawer, and found a photo of six cowgirls sitting on the tailgates of pickup trucks, and offered me the opportunity to use it. The 1940-sh photo is in black and white, so I am punching it up with my own colors. I had to eliminate one of the girls...just couldn't put an even number of figures on my canvas. I will jazz it up the clothing with fringe, boots, rope, scarves, and a few other colorful items. Thanks for looking at my blog. Contact Kay with any questions or comments. KMW
This colorful and fun painting is hanging at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas. I am currently working on a collaborative commission outside the studio, and I am missing my easel time. I am excited about one new piece...I hope to post tomorrow. I am also getting ready for the reception and demo on Saturday....see yesterday's post for that info. Thanks, Kay
This painting was used for the invitation to this Saturday's art opening
at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas. Here's the invite, and you all are welcome to come watch the demos or to the reception---or both! Sharon, Lisa and I are looking forward to seeing everyone, when our new pieces are unveiled. I believe I have 22 new paintings in the show.
This horizontal canvas gave me the perfect format for a contemporary landscape painting. It is very abstract, and you can see that a funnel cloud is sitting on the horizon. I wanted my colors to be earthy and muted and give the feel of a storm coming. I used a palette knife all the way on this painting...so there are no brush strokes. There is some texture where the oils are built up. The sides of the canvas are painted, so framing is optional. Contact Kay for more information on Grey Skies....it is looking for a new home! Thanks, Kay
This is the third magpie painting that I have painted for an upcoming show. Since I have three...I think it is a new series. Just Looking is currently being framed up at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas. Contact ME for more information on this painting. Thanks, Kay
