This small palette knife painting sold last week at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas. I had fun working on this series, and may need to continue them since I did not reach my goal of 100. Thanks for viewing....Kay
Wings #5 Sold 8" x 8" Oil on RayMar Panel This painting sold last week at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas! This is one of the "Wing Series" that I painted last year. I probably need to pick up on that series again, as I wanted to paint 100 paintings, and stopped at 30. Thanks to Pam Massar for making the sale. More tomorrow, as I busy in the studio getting ready for a new painting challenge starting September 1st. Kay
This painting is sold, but I was looking at some photographs of old paintings trying to decide what to paint today. I may pull out my farm pics from Illinois and tackle some pigs or cows. I have some new brushes and paints that I ordered and can't wait to start something new. Thanks for looking at my art...Kay
This is a still life that I painted outside...the set-up was in Don Sahli's yard at his Art School in Evergreen, Colorado. Don set up several still life arrangements and because we were outside, the light and shadows changed the composition. So I had to paint fast. Contact Kay for more information on this painting or any of the art posted on this blog. Thanks, Kay
This is a workshop painting that I did in Colorado this summer. It was hard to catch the morning shadows and the light hitting this old barn. The barn was situated next door to Don Sahli School of Art so I set my easel up two days in the early morning. It was amazing how the shadows moved over the barn. It was a great exercise in looking, looking, looking and then putting the paint on the canvas and doing it quickly. Thanks for looking at this blog....
This is a painting that I started while taking a Laurie Pace Workshop this summer at the Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas. I finished it in the studio, and it is drying. My reference photograph was from my recent visit to Colorado, and this is one of many elk that I saw. Contact me for more information on this painting. Thanks for viewing! Kay
This painting is drying after painting it in Colorado at a Don Sahli workshop. It was an interesting arrangement...and because of the subject matter, it reminded John and I of the cottage in Michigan. I loved the enamel pitcher, fruit, antique platter and dish towel it felt like I was pulling things from the cottage for the still life. The light was bouncing off the ceramic jar and the the fruit. The oils will take a long time to dry, since I used very little medium with the oils. Thanks for looking at the art posted here....contact Kay with any questions concerning my art. Thanks, KMW
This palette knife painting sold this week at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas. Thanks to Pam Massar for selling this painting.

This pic is for Beth, who is up in Colorado tackling this still life at Don Sahli's Art Studio. I can honestly say that it was a challenge, and because the still life is sitting in a window, I had to paint fast with the light changing constantly. There were many stages that this painting went through, and here are a few:
Drawing it out...getting the road map on the canvas. Something that I need to spend more time doing...drawing.
As you can see my set-up, the light is coming through the window, hitting the still life....but it all changed so fast. I had to paint it in at the same time everyday.
Here I am starting to fill in, drawing more and making more changes.
Starting to put some color on. Getting the darkest darks in first. I probably could of painted this on a larger canvas, but did not realize it until I was at this stage. I wish that I had more fabric in my painting. Looking back on this, I learned alot on this canvas. I enjoyed seeing others paint the same still life.
Thanks for looking at my blog....If you have any questions regarding my art, please email Kay Wyne. Thanks, Kay
This oil painting is framed in a beautiful gold frame. The paint is applied with a palette knife and brush, so there is variety in the texture. One of my favorite things about this painting is the rooftop, which has layers of oils built up using the palette knife. The roses in the foreground are also painted with thick paint. I hope that this colorful landscape painting takes the viewer to a pleasant place.... maybe England...maybe a countryside cottage. Thanks for viewing....email@example.com
Thick layers of paint and juicy colors make this floral still life pleasing to the eye. The canvas is full of color and texture, with a huge variety in brush strokes and palette knife strokes. This canvas does need a frame. Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing...Kay Wyne. Thanks for looking at the art posted here....Kay
