Sunflower Power


Sunflower Power
8" x 16" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Floral Still Life
As I was playing around with the beautiful sunflowers I purchased from T.J., my eye zoomed in and I did a quick 90 minute painting.  When I paint quickly without any fussiness, my paintings are loose and free.  "Sunflower Power" is a good example of that.  These five flowers were so much fun to paint!  Thanks for looking at my blog.  Have an artful day.  Kay

Thank you to Pam Massar at Dutch Art Gallery for a good day of demonstrations and gallery time and art talk.  Yesterday was a busy day, starting off with this set-up.  The sunflowers from Trader Joes's did not fail me.  I will post more photos from the event.  Thank you for looking at my blog.  Kay

Flamboyant

 

Flamboyant
24" x 36" Oil and Charcoal on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Abstract
I have been working in the studio this past week, exploring some new color combos.   One of my studio mates had brought me a beautiful photograph of pink peonies, and I started with that as inspiration. This abstract started out as a floral, and morphed into something else.  I had a very good time working on it, using lots of thick juicy oils.  At the end I wanted some calligraphy and some smaller strokes, so I used a willow charcoal stick and a small tool made for ceramics.  I like the movement and the color palette on this canvas...it's happy and fun!  Thanks for looking at my blog.  Contact Kay for more info on the art posted here.  Thanks, Kay
