Tickled Pink

Tickled Pink
18" x 24" Oil on Gallery Wrap 
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
Contact Kay for more info on this painting.
Tickled Pink is a palette knife painting that has very thick players of paint on the canvas. I loved mixing the piles of gooey oils in orange, pink, lavender and corals for this contemporary palette knife painting.  I had painted a similar painting several months ago, but it was lacking in depth, so this is my answer to that issue!!!  This is a close-up shot of the painting so that you can see the body and thick build-up of the oils.
Thanks for looking at my art....I hope we are finished with the snow and ice...more painting in the studio tomorrow.  Have an artful day!  Kay

Pure Bliss

Pure Bliss
12" x 12" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
I am getting ready for an upcoming exhibit with three other local artists...and I have been exploring floral still life paintings.  The possibilities are endless, and I am having so much fun with them!  This still life needs a frame since it is painted on a museum quality panel.  Contact ME for more information on Pure Bliss.  We are snowed in today, so it will be a great day to paint at the studio.  Thanks for looking, Kay

Blue Skies Above

Blue Skies Above
Contemporary Landscape Painting
24" x 36" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
I know we are all longing for warm, blue skies with the weather we have been having in Texas.  So today's post is a contemporary landscape painting.  It is very painterly.  I was generous with the paint, and used a wide brush to lay in the colors.  I was at the studio painting for ten hours straight yesterday, and completed two paintings, worked on a large painting, and forgot to take pics.  I am really excited about the two paintings that are signed and drying.  I have a 4 woman show coming up and need to have a dozen new pieces.  More on that later.  Comments or questions....email ME.  Thanks, Kay

Rattled

Rattled
24" x 24" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Abstract
Can you tell the mood I was in when I painted this abstract?  Totally rattled and annoyed.  Not my usual color palette, but bold and masculine.  I was frustrated about a phone call while at the studio, and just started painting with the paints that were out on the palette.  I mixed alot with a palette knife, and got the oil sticks out, creating movement and energy on the canvas.  This painting is available....contact Kay for purchasing info.  Thanks, Kay

Peonies, Fruit and Fabric

Peonies, Fruit and Fabric
20" x 24" Oil on Canvas
Contemporary Still Life Painting
Framed in a simple gold but elegant frame, this still life painting is full of interesting flowers, ceramics, fabric and fruit.  The light hitting the peonies are as dramatic as the cast shadows.  I remember painting this...I thought the set-up was so beautiful.  Contact Kay for purchasing info.  Thanks, Kay

Just Because


Just Because
36" x 36" Oil on Heavy Duty Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Floral Palette Knife Painting
My inspiration for this painting was a beautiful arrangement that son in-law Wes gave to daughter Lindsay. I asked what the occasion was......."just because" was the answer that I got. I used thick strokes with the palette knife.
Here is a close-up of the painting....the paint is built up on the canvas. Contact Pam Massar at The Dutch Art Gallery Dallas TX if you are interested in purchasing.  Thanks for viewing this art blog.  Have a good day...Kay
