I painted this landscape this week, and I am trying to decide if I am finished or not. My intent was for the eye to wander across the canvas back to the horizon line. I may add some more color to the sky and the foreground, but for the most part it is completed. I struggled big time with another painting on my easel...and ended up with a critique from my studio partners. Frustration set in and I started wiping and scraping the paint. I don't know if I can look at that painting today, so I may pull out a new canvas and get a fresh start on the same subject matter. Thanks for viewing...stay cool. Kay at kaywyne.com or 214-532-0325.
This contemporary palette knife painting has a new home in the suburbs of Chicago. I get excited when my paintings move to new homes. I was back in the studio yesterday...it took me a while to get back in the groove after being away from the easel for 12 days. Thanks for viewing this blog....have an artful day.

This painting sold this week at Adieb Khadoure Fine Art in Santa Fe. He was a Dallas donkey who lives at Fuel City. I have been away from the computer for a week, and still traveling. John and I will be getting back into the routine tomorrow....I am missing the easel. Thanks for viewing. Kay
If you have visited New Orleans, I am sure that this painting will strike a cord with you. The Lucky Dog carts on the corner are great. I have a friend who has been in NOLA, so I thought I would post this painting. Thanks for looking. Have a great Father's Day!
This painting is a contemporary palette knife painting, on a gallery wrap canvas. It does not need a frame....ready to hang. Thick layers of paint create texture and contrast in this landscape. I applied the paint quickly, not fussing over the paint, or changing anything once the stroke was made. As I was working, I felt like I was frosting a cake with a big spatula, allowing the paint to ooze all over. Thanks for viewing this blog...contact Kay if you would like to purchase any of the art on this blog. email@example.com
This painting is going to the Dutch Art Gallery to be framed in a unique metal frame that Pam Massar purchased. I hope that it fits, and will let this dry and varnish before taking it to Dutch Art. I am working on a commission and finishing up some paintings at the studio today. Thanks for looking at my art. Kay
Painted on natural gessoed linen, I used oil, crayon, and ink on this mixed media piece. The vibrant colors pop off the raw and natural color of the linen. The ink was fun to work with because it dried instantly, a change from the oils. Once I started using the ink, I realized that I had a stained glass effect on the dragonfly. If you are interested in purchasing this painting, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Thanks for viewing this blog! Kay
This contemporary abstract began with shapes and lines, and the dragonfly image came midway through the painting. I wanted the background to be soft very soothing to the viewer, with the shapes bold and colorful, floating on the canvas. This painting is drying at the studio. Thanks for looking at this blog. Kay
I had some fun with the painting...branching out and using some other materials along with the oil paints. I started with a few shapes and the image of the dragonfly, and kept adding and adding as I worked on it. There is alot of negative space, which gives the eye a rest from all the of the colors, lines and shapes in this abstract. The natural raw linen is beautiful in color and texture, so I did not want to totally cover it up in paints. This painting is drying at the studio, please contact me if you are interested in this painting. Thanks for looking at my blog. Kay
Framed in gold leaf moulding, now hanging at The Fredericksburg Good Art Company. This rooster is from the Heritage Village (Old City Park) in Dallas, Texas....he lives on the farm/village located in downtown Dallas. Please contact Mary Katherine at Good Art Company if you are interested in this rooster. I am getting ready to start a commission, so doing some research right now, along with finishing up some paintings in the studio. Have a great day, and thanks for viewing this blog and the art posted. Kay
I had the opportunity to work on this painting yesterday, toning the blue skies down. The were way to blue, so I grayed them down, and started to put some puffy clouds in with some shapes. I hope to make alot of progress on this painting today. Thanks for stopping by this blog and looking. Have an artful day....Kay
I was revisiting my reference photo for this painting yesterday. I really enjoyed painting this piece a couple of years ago. I may start another one on a large canvas for an exhibit. I have about a dozen paintings that need finishing touches, so I have plenty of work to do. I hope to post a new painting tomorrow and the progress on the landscape that I had demonstrated on Saturday. Thanks for viewing, Kay
I have been working on this painting for two months, and every time I think I am finished, I put another stroke of paint on it. I signed it, and it is drying. This is the painting that I worked on at Dutch Art Gallery on Saturday for the demonstration. The mountains have layers and layers of thick paint, giving it texture and depth. I started to work on the foreground, but had to do some wiping. I will probably tone down the sky with some purple and gray. I had a plan in my mind when I started this painting, but after putting in the background, I have changed the game plan. Thanks for viewing my blog and looking at the art posted. I hope to have more tomorrow...Thanks, Kay
This painting sold last week at the Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas. Thanks to Pam Massar for making the sale. Yesterday while I was doing a demonstration at Dutch Art, I had the opportunity to meet Lisa (purchaser) and Cindy (received the painting as a gift) and Cheryl (friend). It is always fun to visit with collectors and know that your painting has a good home.
Here is the beginnings of a new painting, the 48" x 48" canvas that I worked on for the demonstration. I put the mountains in with the palette knife and worked on the sky. I will post more tomorrow on the progress of this painting. Thanks for viewing my blog. Kay
This abstract has been a work in progress for a while.
I applied layers and layers of oil color, giving it depth.
When I started this painting, I had thought that I would limit my palette to warm reds and oranges. But later on I decided a neutral color of charcoal gray would balance it out. I am thinking on the title.....thanks for viewing my blog. Have an artful day. Kay at email@example.com
This contemporary abstract painting has been shipped to Washington, D.C. where it has a new home! The lovely couple wanted a painting with pinks! The pinks, oranges and reds really warm this painting up. I used a palette knife to apply the paint. I have been working on some new paintings, all works in progress. I need to put final touches on them, sign them and photograph at the studio today. I will be painting at Dutch Art Gallery tomorrow, doing a demonstration. Please stop by to say hello if you are in the neighborhood. Have a great day...Kay
