This canvas is sitting on my easel. More work to do.....
It was one of those paintings that I started months ago, and never really got into it. The initial drawing was green (ugh) jalepeno peppers in a basket....I worked on it for several days. I got bored with it. Then it went to the storage room. This week I decided that the peppers had to go and this rooster was going to make a statement. I used the palette knife --- there are layers and layers of paint drying before I go to work on him. I cut loose on the colors. He needs a fuller chest and more work on the feathers. I haven't set his eye in----the canvas was so wet that I need to let it dry for a while. I don't know what he will look like when I am finished, but I am enjoying this rooster more than the basket of green peppers. Thanks for viewing....Kay
This is one of my favorite dragonfly abstracts. It sold yesterday in Santa Fe at Adieb Khadoure Fine Art. I am thrilled that this painting will be traveling to a new home. I liked the lines, shapes and colors in this painting, and hope that the new owner enjoys this abstract. Thanks for viewing this blog....Kay
Here is a pic of a few of my wing series paintings on 8" x 8" RayMar panels. Two of these have been sold. These floater frames are neat looking...I am glad that I tried them. Thanks for viewing my blog...I am in the studio working on a commission today. Kay
This painting is sitting on my easel drying. My inspiration for this painting was an old dinghy located on the rocky shores of Scarborough, Maine. The boat was at a fishing wharf, and I loved the rust, moss and weathered look of the dinghy. The air smelled old and fishy. The landscape was beautiful, the dinghy was a sharp contrast to it's surroundings. It was Just Waiting for an adventure out on the water. Thanks for viewing....email@example.com
This landscape painting was sold this weekend to collectors John and Heather.....Thanks for giving this painting a new home! Another busy day at the studio.....on the White Rock Open Studio Tour this weekend. Thanks for viewing....Kay
This baby chicken turned out to be a rooster...and he had already been named Elizabeth. Mark Malone has a chicken coop, and this was his most colorful chick out of seven. Since Mark lives in the Dallas city limits, once Liz started crowing early in the mornings, Liz was moved to the country. Liz was fun to paint, and this palette knife painting was a perfect addition to my Wings series. Contact Kay at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on this painting.
Here is #22....sounds like a lucky number to me. These little panels are getting a lot of attention at the studio. They look great in a grouping. I have ordered some floater frames for them to dress them up. Contact Kay for more information at email@example.com. Thanks for viewing
This abstract was sold yesterday to a collector in Minnesota. My day was kind of jumbled with errands, when Al called to see if I had some abstract aspens. He had seen my art at the Omni Hotel Convention Center in Dallas. So before Al and his sweet rescue dog hit the road, he came to the studio and purchased this painting. It will be traveling to Eden Prairie, MN as a gift to his friend, Scott. Thanks for your interest in my art, Al.....I hope my painting makes Scott smile. Kay
My inspiration for this painting was a beautiful arrangement that son in-law Wes gave to daughter Lindsay. I asked what the occasion was......."just because" was the answer that I got. Painting the is drying at the studio. I used thick strokes with the palette knife.
Here is a close-up of the painting....the paint is built up on the canvas. Contact Pam Massar atThe Dutch Art Gallery Dallas TX if you are interested in purchasing. Thanks for viewing this art blog. Have a good day...Kay at 214-532-0325 or firstname.lastname@example.org
