Misty - Sold!

Misty
30" x 30" Oil on Canvas
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
Thanks to Pam Massar, owner of Dutch Art Gallery for framing and selling this large landscape painting.  I love the colors on this canvas, they are soft and harmonious, leading the eye into the horizon.  I enjoyed painting the dramatic clouds...I am so pleased that Misty has a new home!  I have more paintings on the easel in the studio as it is too hot and humid to paint outside right now.  Thanks for looking at this blog....Kay Wyne

12" x 12" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
Floral Landscape
I am taking this painting off the easel for now...I signed it, but need to live with it and think about it...I am not sure if it is finished.  It might be that I am finished painting on it for now.  I used a palette knife on this panel...all the way.  Lots of texture and built-up paint.  

I started with a rather simple landscape, and wanted the path to fade into the distance.  The wildflowers are scattered throughout the field, and at some points over-lap into the pathway.  I would hope that the viewer can get lost in this painting, enjoying the "unknown" in this painting.  Contact Kay for more info on this painting.  Thanks for looking...Kay

Shea Baby

Shea Baby
24" x 30" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
I was looking at this painting, remembering Shea and what a great dog she was.  I really enjoyed painting this one.  I used wide brushes, plenty of paint, and wanted to get her full of life personality on the canvas.  Currently we have three grand-doggies and I might need to paint one of them.  When the dogs are so active, it is necessary to work off of photographs.  So putting a few photograph sessions is on my to-do list.  Contact Kay Wyne with any questions or comments on this color and fun painting.  Thanks for looking...Kay

Flutter

Flutter
24" x 24" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
Thanks to friend Mark Malone, I was able to paint from a beautiful photograph that he had taken of a red dragonfly.  I thought it was a neat shot with vivid colors.  This abstract painting has lots of texture...I used heavy impasto to build up the oils.  The sides of the canvas are painted, so it is ready to hang.  Contact Kay Wyne for purchasing info.  It is hanging at the studio and would love to have a new home!  Thanks for looking...Kay

Springtime Colors - Sold


Springtime Colors
Sold by Bill Hester Fine Art, Santa Fe, New Mexico
22" x 28" Oil on Canvas
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
Thank you to Bill Hester for selling this contemporary floral landscape painting.  The thick layers of paint created texture on the canvas.  The field of poppies flows into the background of the field...fading away into the horizon line.  I am thrilled that this painting has a new home!  Thanks, Bill.

Jar of Petals

Jar of Petals
10" x 10" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Oil Painting
My color palette is very vibrant in this painting....which I just completed in the studio.  It is too hot to paint outside in Texas under the hot July sun.  I had fun with this one....I wanted all of the flowers to sing with color.  Here is a pic of my palette that I was working from.
There is more brushwork than palette knife on this panel.  I wanted my colors to be bright, vivid and intense.  This painting will be drying in the studio, then I will frame.  Contact ME if you have any comments or have an interest in purchasing.  Thanks for looking....Kay Wyne
