This 30" x 30" heavy duty gallery wrap canvas was a commission, and is completed. The collector requested a specific color palette, and I tried to stay within the colors that I was given. On day two of painting, I think I got carried away with the turquoise, violet and blues....so I toned those down with the earthy colors. I used the palette knife for the most part, along with a stroke or two....of a wide brush and some oil sticks.
The collector now has this painting hanging in their new home. I am thrilled that this abstract has moved from the studio to a new home. Thanks for viewing this blog, and I know that this is getting old, but stay cool!!!! Kay
Elsie is one of my favorite cows...she has great color and was fun to paint. She looks fabulous in a dark wood frame. Please contact me if you are interested in her. She is looking for a new home. Thanks for viewing....Kay at 214-532-0325
This small painting was a fun little piece that I created after rambling through an old tackle box. It is framed and ready to find a new home. Contact Kay at email@example.com for more information on this painting. Thanks for viewing this blog! Kay
This painting just sold to a collector in Santa Fe. The painting was hanging at Adieb Khadoure Fine Art. Stay cool...the Texas heat is brutal. I will be in the studio today working on the mixed media commissions. Thanks for viewing this blog and my art. Kay
This painting has evolved....into tumbling shapes and colors.
Layers of color bounce around the canvas with shapes painted on top of each other.
After the initial color was painted, I used a palette knife to scrape some paint around.
The butterfly shape appeared, and I started painting portions of a butterfly where I saw the right shapes and colors along with some geometric lines. Then I got the oil pastel bars out...I had just ordered some new ones, and could not wait to use them. I hope that the viewer finds this contemporary abstract painting fun, colorful and interesting. Thanks for viewing this blog! Stay cool.....Kay
This is my first koi painting...I layered and layered the paint on, and had the gold/orange koi way too light. I was happy with the colors in the white/gray koi, but not the golden ones. I enjoyed the first day on this painting, and struggled with the days following. I know the water in the koi pond needs to be greener, but I don't like painting green very well, so I just went with what I wanted on the water. I hope to get some better reference photographs next trip to the Dallas Arboretum....I am in the studio all day today, hoping that my brushes are kind to me. Thanks for viewing this blog!
