Inspired by a photograph taken by Renn Lawrence...thank you Renn! I couldn't take my eyes of this longhorn, and finished him in the studio yesterday. I amped up the colors, but used the photograph as a reference. I loved the golden yellows, ochres and oranges on his coat. He is drying at the studio right now...Thanks for looking at him.

This abstract went through many 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 texture...it is all on this canvas. I really like this size canvas...it hangs well above a 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! Contact Kay for more information. KMW
This painting is sitting on my easel...I want to take a few days to look at it, and maybe make some small changes. I wanted the viewer's eye to look at the colorful wildflowers in the foreground, and then the eye to wander through the canvas to the background. The aspens have some texture on them....indicating knobby knots and bark. The leaves are thick strokes of paint....all with the brush. Contact Kay for more information on this painting.

Contact Pam Massar at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas for more information on this painting. Framing is optional because the canvas is mounted on thick stretcher bars. This painting is full of color and texture. Thanks for looking....Kay
(this is a temporary name for the painting, until I decide on title!)
40" x 30" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Framing is optional, as the sides of canvas are painted.
I think I am finished with this painting. It is sitting on my easel, and I will take a few days to step away from it and see if I need make any adjustments. This beauty was over at the Ft. Worth Stock Show in February this year, and I decided to put him out in a field on my canvas. I may need to re-take the photo, as the colors don't look as true in the photo as they do standing in front of the canvas.
Here is my reference photo...I thought he was beautiful standing there in the barn, getting ready to be shown. His coat was clean and blown-dry. I think he traveled from Illinois to Ft. Worth for the stock show. Below is a a close-up of the eye.
