Landscape

Landscape
12" x 16" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
I thought I was finished with this painting, but now that I look at it on my computer, I may need to go back in and add more color.  The paint is very thick and chunky.  I used impasto so that I could have lots of texture and it would dry quickly.  I will post tomorrow any changes that I make on it in the studio.  Thanks for looking.....Contact ME for more information on this painting.  Kay

Bucket of Color

Bucket of Color
14" x 14" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Still Life Painting
Last weekend Merriam and Blake went to a wedding reception and brought home one of the table decorations, a small silver bucket with a beautiful arrangement in it.  I took it to the studio and set up a still life to paint.  I loved the colors and variety of shapes of the flowers and greenery.  This painting is drying at the studio, but is looking for a new home.  Contact ME for more information on this painting, or any other painting posted here.  Thanks, Kay

Ecstatic Day

Ecstatic Day
12" x 24" Oil on Canvas
Contemporary Floral Landscape
Ecstatic Day is framed in dark wood moulding with gold lip.  This floral landscape is very painterly.  The wildflowers are colorful and wandering through the field.  I used a wide flat brush on this painting, and did not put lots of detail in it.  Contact Kay for purchasing information.  Thanks, KMW

Four Square

Four Square

36" x 36" Mixed Media on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Rooster Painting
Four Square is a large square canvas, with four rooster images painted with wide brush strokes.  Each rooster is painted differently, as if they have their own personality and individuality.  The close-up image below shows that there is an abstract quality to the images of these fun roosters.  I amped up the color, and exaggerated the features on the fine feathered creatures.

Here is a closer look at the rooster in the top right corner of the painting.  As you can see, there are layers of paint, ink and oil sticks on the canvas.  Since this is on a gallery wrap canvas, a frame is optional.  This contemporary rooster painting is looking for a new home...contact Kay if you are interested in this painting.  Thanks, Kay

Empty Nest Waiting

Empty Nest Waiting
8" x 16" Oil on Canvas
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
Empty Nest Waiting is framed up and hanging at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas.  I used a wide brush and my palette knife to create this contemporary nest painting. You can see the wide brushstrokes in the background...I didn't get fussy with it.  I painted it, and left the paint so that the brush strokes were visible.  The sticks and twigs of the nest are thick and textured.  Thanks for looking at this blog.....Kay
