Horizon Series: Abstract #1027

Horizon Series: Abstract 1027
Oil on 22" x 30" Gallery Wrap Canvas

This abstract went through alot of changes before it was completed. When I started it, I was using a totally different color scheme and did not know I was going in this direction. I applied layers and layers of color...there is alot of movement and depth in this abstract. I used both the brush and palette knife on this one. Lines, shapes, color and is all on this canvas. I really like this size hangs well above a dark piece of furnture or tilted up against the wall, sitting on a table or cabinet. This contemporary abstract is on gallery wrap canvas, so no frame is needed. It is ready to hang! Thanks so much for viewing this blog. Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing this painting. Have a great day! Kay

Garbage Truck & Dumpster - Commission - SOLD

This is a 16" x 20" oil painting on canvas. I was commissioned to paint...and I must say that sometime back in September I was struggling. I called the client who wanted this as a Christmas gift for her husband to check in and gift her a report on the progress of the painting. I was not real jazzed about the subject matter, and wanted to make the painting interesting to the viewer. She told me that I could do whatever I wanted with the painting, but the dumpster, truck and lettering needed to be included. She also told me that she did not think there was anything sexy about a garbage truck!!! (oh how true) Anyway, this painting is finished and was under the Christmas tree for the Brown Family. Thanks for viewing this blog...I am heading back to the studio today to throw some paint around now that all of my holiday guests have left. Have an artful day. Kay

Cheers to Twenty Years

Cheers to Twenty Years
Commission for Taste of the NFL
Mixed Media - 30" x 24" Gallery Wrap Canvas

“Cheers to Twenty Years” is a mixed media art piece exploring the purpose of The Taste of the NFL, the chefs, and events that have taken place in the past twenty years. It is a work of art celebrating the parties with purpose. The canvas tells the story of many memories past…ticket stubs, cookbook covers, wine labels, the thirty-two NFL teams, chefs, and the mission statement. The longhorn, bandana and map of North Texas add a Texas flavor to the canvas. A wine glass and confetti are reminders of parties past. Deep rich colors, lines, shapes and images allow the eye to move all over the canvas. I was truly inspired by the commitment and generosity of so many people who have been associated with this organization. My goal was to capture and celebrate the spirit of The Taste of the NFL on canvas.
I can't wait for Super Bowl time in Texas!!! Thanks to Heather Walther and Heritage Auction Galleries for photographing the canvas. Special thanks to Liz Brown and Taste of the NFL for giving me the opportunity to work on this project. I enjoyed every minute of it, and we are looking forward to the Taste of the NFL events coming to North Texas in February 2011! Thanks for viewing my art...Kay

Abstract Aspens

Abstract Aspens
Palette Knive Painting
Oil on 20" x 24" Gallery Wrap Canvas
Finished! I have several other paintings at the studio that I am working on...if you look closely you can see some other images other than the aspens. I used LOTS of paint....especially since I accidently squirted some out of the tube, on to the floor and did not want to waste it. Thanks for viewing this blog! Have an artful day....

On my easel...

This is what I painted on is a 16" x 20" canvas. I wanted paint something fun, fast and colorful. I got carried away with the green, so I tried to tone it down with Prussian Blue and a Violet Chrome. tone. Then I thought my background was too golden/yellow. So I used Yellow Ochre and went that route to make it more earthy. Carol, Suzy and Michael were at the studio for a while...I painted at the studio for several hours by alternative was Christmas shopping or cleaning house. So I stayed at the studio with my paints and didn't shop or clean! I guess you can tell where my priorities are. Maybe I will make more progress tomorrow on this painting...maybe I will get the palette knives out. Thanks for viewing this blog! Kay

The Haubold Homecoming...still wet!

The Haubold Homecoming
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
I wanted to capture the excitement, love and big hug when Stacy and Kyle saw each other after months of being thousands of miles apart. The photograph that I used for a reference had more detail, more people and more things going on around the couple. I loved the flowers in his hand as he squeezed sweet Stacy when he came off the submarine. I almost painted in all the people in the background, but I wanted all the focus to be on the couple, and wanted to paint a very simple painting. I used broad, flat brush strokes and bold color. It was a fun painting to paint. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Haubold on the reunion in Hawaii!
And by the way, you have to come to Dallas to pick up your painting.
Merry Christmas from Mama Kay!

Fifteen Minute Flip Flop

Quick Fifteen Minute Painting
Beachy Flip Flops
I have been finishing up two commission pieces at the studio, and had some paint leftover on my palette...I needed to paint something loose and colorful. So here you go...Beachy Flip Flops...this oil is on a 12" x 12" gessoed masonite. I used a wide flat brush and cut loose with the colors. No detail on this one. When you are working on a piece that requires FC (the dreaded Forced Creativity) it helps to jump on a canvas that you don't have to think about, stew about, or push yourself into FC. I will not post three of my commissions until after Christmas since they are gifts for some. Thanks for viewing this blog...Kay

Rudy Rooster - Palette Knife Painting by Kay

12" x 16" Oil on Canvas

I finally finished a painting yesterday. I have many paintings going, and either I am stuck or uninspired to work on them. This guy is very wet...I really layered the paint on with the knife. I think he will look great framed up in a dark wood moulding. Thanks for viewing this blog.
Please contact me if you are interested in this would make a great Christmas gift for someone! or 214-532-0325.

Horison Series: Abstract #25

Horizon Series: Abstract #25
Oil on 12" x 36" Gallery Wrap Canvas
I have five new paintings in progress that are sitting on my easel...all are at a turning point...and I am not sure what I am doing with them. I don't want them to turn into wipers, as I was having "issues" with the green in one of the paintings. I had painted a pastoral scene the day before Thanksgiving, and did the usual Kay Wyne/green takes over the canvas trick. The minute I put green (I am mixing my own green straight out of the tube) on the canvas, green takes over and in my opinion, totally dominates the painting. My struggles with green continues, and it happens to me over and over.
I was not planning on going to the studio yesterday, but I needed a break from putting up the Christmas tree and decorations. I am always in the mood to paint, but I took it slow yesterday because I did not want to mess up the background on a longhorn painting. I don't know when I will painting again...I do know we will be decorated for Christmas by the end of the day. Thanks for viewing this blog.

Plein Air at White Rock Lake

I ventured out in the wind on Monday to White Rock Lake to paint. Here is a photo of the location that I did my plein air painting from. It is wonderful to interpret a scene en plein air, and then use that study for future paintings. I forgot to take a pic of the painting, but will do that today at the studio. I think I will continue on with this painting, to see what else I can get from it...maybe paint it on a large canvas. The open studio tour is over, the receptions for the three shows that I have hanging in Dallas are over, and now I need to focus on some commissions and complete several paintings at the studio. Thanks for viewing this blog...have a great day as we all prepare for Thanksgiving.

Cedars Open Studio Tour

I am not posting a painting today...yesterday I struggled at the easel, and attempted to finish a commission piece. It was one of those days. So today I am going to paint what I want to paint. We are also busy hanging art and cleaning up the studio for the tour. Here is some information on The Cedars if you are not familiar with this neighborhood in Dallas.

Saturday, Nov. 20, 2010: 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Cedars Open Studios Tour

The Cedars is home to fine artists and craftsmen working in every genre. Their studios, just south of downtown, have helped the neighborhood come alive. Once a year the studios are open to the public. Come see where ideas are created, and where art, community and economic development come together to make the Cedars such a unique area of Dallas.
The eight annual Cedars Open Studios is your opportunity to learn about the neighborhood and the numerous professional artists and craftsmen residing in the Cedars. The artist studios are open year around by appointment, but once a year, they open on the same day, giving visitors a chance to really experience a creative, evolving neighborhood.
About The Cedars Neighborhood - Historically, the Cedars was among Dallas’ first elegant neighborhoods, named after the forest of cedar and oak trees lining its streets. The Cedars became home to some of Dallas’ great leaders, including Alexander Sanger, of Sanger-Harris and Stanley Marcus, of Neiman-Marcus. The Cedars also boasted Dallas’ first old city park (now Heritage Village), the city’s first water pump station, its first telephone exchange, first zoo, and numerous stately mansions.
As Dallas grew, the Cedars, already home to many of the city’s leading businesses, embraced the new industrialization. The quiet, Victorian village, perched on the south edge of Downtown Dallas, became a thriving industrial center with factories and warehouses, such as the old Sears-Roebuck building (now South Side on Lamar lofts), which is home to numerous artists and civic leaders. Eventually, as commerce evolved, the Cedars became ripe for a new wave of people who realized the potential of this convenient, eclectic and historic neighborhood. These people are now transforming the Cedars into a unique community that nurtures vibrant, creative people who enrich Dallas with character and culture. The Cedars Open Studio Tour is an annual celebration of this evolving, eclectic neighborhood. Visit for a map of the tour and more information.

Demo at Dutch Art Gallery

Here is a pic of the demo that I did at Dutch Art Gallery yesterday. I started by toning the canvas with a warm grey. Then began putting the paint on with my palette knife. I had taped off some of the larger areas that would eventually have titanium white so that the white would not get muddy or streaked. The canvas is 36" x 36" so it will take a while to get it covered with will take alot of paint for sure.

The day went by fast because there were alot of people stopping in. Pam had a constant stream of framing customers, and then there were those who came in to see the Artists of Texas Annual show, Where Texas Finds It's Color... artistsofTexas.orgArtistofTexas.blogspot.comDailyPaintersofTexas.blogspot

I hope to take this canvas to the studio today and work on it. Thanks for viewing this blog. Thanks for stopping in at The Dutch Art Gallery to see the show. Kay

This painting has deep rich colors, layers and layers of texture. It is on a gallery wrap canvas, so no frame is needed. Ready to hang. I made it to the studio yesterday, but did not get alot accomplished. One of those days. My head was hurting and I couldn't get very excited about my commission pieces.

En Plein Air

En Plein Air....painting outside on the spot. Yesterday was a perfect day for it in Dallas. It was a warm, sunny November morning. I met Lynn, Jerry and Carolyn (new painting friends) at the stables and went exploring. The horses were beautiful, the peacocks were out and the location was amazing....right in the city of Dallas. I was set up here with my easel painting the stable and these two men who were deep into conversation. Bob and Tex. I also ran into Dianne Mildren and met Buckshot, her handsome horse. Dianne quickly pointed out to me that riding Buckshot is her passion, just as painting is mine. I hope to pull some great paintings from this little outing. It was a wonderful Monday morning!!! Thanks for looking at this blog, I hope to finish the painting today that I started at the stables.

Monday, November 8, 2010


Here are a couple of my nest paintings...they are hanging at Dutch Art Gallery. Nests are one of my favorite things to paint. Nests are like people....they come in different sizes, shapes and colors, and are interesting. I have a small collection (two or more make a collection, right?) of nests that I have found. I need to expand my collection of two! I will be working on a commission piece today and probably painting plein air if it isn't too chilly here in Dallas. I hope that you enjoy viewing this blog. Happy Monday!

Aspens in Color

Aspens in Color
12" x 12" Oil on Masonite
This painting is hanging at the The Dutch Art Gallery. This small painting is only 12" x 12". I was talking to a lady who was interested in this painting....and she was drawn to it because of the colors. I told her that if the painting speaks to her, that is reason enough to consider purchasing. I have four other aspen paintings hanging at Dutch Art in the show. I was amazed at the wonderful art...really good art at the show. If you missed the reception yesterday, here is the show info:

Honduras Threads....a pillow story!

This little pillow was found on Sunday by John Wyne while he was riding his bike in downtown Dallas. He thought it was odd that a cute and unique pillow would be in the street. John looked around to see if he could find the owner, or figure out where it came from, but did not have any luck. He picked it up and brought it to me at the studio where I was painting. Then he resumed riding. Later he saw two chairs with one pillow out on the sidewalk on Harwood Street...he went inside and met Pamela Nelson, Sally Sloan and M'Lou Bancroft. Yes, he found the home of the pillow that had blown away from Honduras Threads. When we left the studio we returned the pillow to Honduras Threads, temporarily set up in Pamela's studio.
I was so impressed with Honduras Threads that I returned on Monday with Carol Morgan and Sharon Hodges. Here is Sally Sloan, M'Lou Bancroft and Pamela Nelson holding some of the wonderful linen pillow shams and runners that were made Honduran women. Please go to the website for more information:

Sharon Hodges was amazed at the quality of these pillows. Wonderful colors, designs and we were wowwed by it all. It was so much fun to visit Pamela's studio and see such wonderful works of art. No two pieces were alike...all stitched with fine craftsmanship. It was wonderful to see it all! Please support Honduras Threads if you have the opportunity to purchase a pillow or runner.

On my easel....

I am back in Dallas after a trip to Macomb, Illinois. I did not know what I wanted to paint, and put a large canvas on my easel yesterday. I started with some earthy colors, but gradually started applying some blues. I wanted to apply thick layers of paint with the palette knife, and have a good start on it. I will put some aspen trees in the painting today. It was really good to get back in the studio and see some of my studio partners.
I was amazed at the color I saw in the leaves in the midwest. That was a bonus for me on this trip. My mother is currently in the hospital, and this tree was outside the front door of the hospital. I think it is the only picture that I took all week. Everything took a backseat--- as my mother's health is deteriorating and her health care was the priority. I usually get some livestock, barn and landscape pictures while traveling, but not this trip. Thanks for viewing this blog....

American Art Collector...November Issue

This two page ad is in the upcoming American Art Collector! It is a great spread (put together by Laurie Pace) featuring the Artists of Texas show at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas. More on that show later.

I don't have a new painting to post today, but I think I am over the painting slump that I have been in for several days. I have two commissions I am working on, and about 2:00 yesterday afternoon I cut loose on the mixed media piece and things started working for me. I have to make another trip to the art store and get a few more photographs to work with, but at least I am not staring at a blank canvas. Forced creativity was getting the best of me. So I will be back in the studio today hoping to have a productive day! I hope yours is a good one.

Go Away Dragonfly

Go Away Dragonfly
10" x 20" Oil on canvas
Palette Knife Painting
This painting has gone through alot. At one time it was a totally different image...a green dragonfly with detail on the wings. I got irritated with it all and made it go away with the palette knife. So, Go Away Dragonfly is one of those paintings that just happened. There is thickness and texture to the paint...bold and deliberate on the canvas. This contemporary abstract will be hanging at the Dutch Art Gallery, and probably framed in a gold frame. Thanks for viewing this blog. Have a great day!!!!

Once In a Blue Moon

Once In a Blue Moon - SOLD!
16" x 20" Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Oil Painting
Once in a Blue Moon ... a phrase that we have all heard. This was a topic of conversation in the Wyne house is a common way of saying not very often, but what exactly is a Blue Moon? It is the second Full Moon to occur in a single calendar month. That occurred last December, when we had a Full Moon on the 2nd and the 31st. According to the experts, there will be 41 months that have two Full Moons in every century, so you could say that once in a Blue Moon actually means once every two-and-a-half years.
Once in a Blue Moon is also a title for lyrics to the Van Morrison song....
Once in a blue moon
Something good comes along
Once in a blue moon
Everything's not going wrong
When you get weary
Beating on the same old gong
Once in a blue moon
Someone like you comes along
When I started the above painting, I had a collage look going, starting with the words, Once in a Blue Moon painted on the canvas several times. If you look closely you can see them under the layers of paint. You can also see two images of horses, geometric figures and layers of paint along with oil crayons. There is alot of movement in the painting and the eye jumps from one shape to the next shape. This contemporary abstract oil painting is now signed and completed after weeks on the easel. It is on a gallery wrap canvas, so no frame is needed. The collector who now owns this painting lives in Connecticut. Thanks for viewing this blog!

Aspens Diptych

Contemporary Aspens Diptych
48" x 60" (Two 48" x 30" canvases)
Oil Palette Knife Painting
I finished this painting...signed it and put the fan on it since it is very wet.
This is the first time that I have painted on Heavy Duty Canvas...I liked it alot.
I moved the wet canvas outside to photograph,
so the dark brown line inbetween the paintings is the outside of the studio.
I put a zig-zag dark path in the background so that the eye moves around the canvas.
Thanks for viewing this blog...
(p.s. I am not sure what the title of this should be....any suggestions are welcome!)

On my easel....

I changed the green up, and added more paint and details to the aspens today. More paint, more shapes, more work on this painting tomorrow.
This is one of the projects I have been working on this week...a dyptych in oils. Each heavy-duty canvas is 48" x 30", so overall size is 48" x 60"...I have gone through numerous tubes of paint on this painting already. I have more color and depth to put in, and then the aspens need more paint. Actually, this is not my easel...I am using Sharon's easel because it large enough to hold two canvas' side by side. Tomorrow I will post the painting sitting on my easel.

I went to the studio everyday this week to paint, and then today painted en plein aire....outside. It was a beautiful, sunny and warm October afternoon, and was fun painting with an old friend and a new friend. The location of the paint-out was great. I hope to go back tomorrow!!! Thanks for viewing this blog, and looking at my art. Have a great weekend!

My Cowboy Model

Cowboy Up
Contemporary Oil Painting
24" x 24" on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Last weekend I was able to give my nephew, Casey Settles a painting that I had painted in March. He was at an Equestrian Competition and I took some reference photos of him getting dressed for his event. "Cowboy Up" was inspired by a moment that I caught on my camera...putting on his chaps. When Casey saw the painting in person, he loved it! That was a real joy for for me to see his reaction and I was thrilled to let him have the painting. Giving a painting that I created gives me as much joy as actually painting. I hope to start a new painting today at the studio, and have my canvas all ready. Thanks so much for viewing and have an artful day!

Blue Sky Aspens

Blue Sky Aspens
10" x 20" Oil on Canvas
Palette Knife Painting
The paint was applied with a palette knife on this canvas, giving the surface alot of texture.
This is one of those contemporary oil paintings that I feel like I can truely say I am a colorist.
I would say that I gave this painting color importance, achieving a special effect with color.
Lots of color, many shades. It will take a long time to dry. I plan to deliver this painting to The Dutch Art Gallery....Pam at Dutch Art has a gold frame waiting for this canvas. I can't wait to see it all framed up and hanging. Thanks for viewing this blog, and have an artful day!
