On my easel...

On my easel...
I started a 30" x 40" gallery wrap canvas yesterday in the studio.
Here you can see I have two layers of transparent paint down.  I don't have a game plan at this time, just painting.  At this stage, anything is possible.
Currently, I have three canvases going right now, with hopes to complete at least one of them today.  Have a great day!  Contact Kay with any questions or comments.  KMW

The Guardian by Kay Wyne

The Guardian
48" x 24" Oil on Canvas
Contemporary Landscape Painting

A recent trip to Arizona gave me the perfect opportunity to get some photographs of the amazing Saguaro Cactus.  The title, "The Guardian" hit me as my cousin Chuck told me that in his mind, the huge Saguaros as the guardians of the desert.  These gigantic cacti are located in Tucson and the surrounding desert...and OMG their presence is everywhere!  

I wanted to put down on canvas what the Saguaro looked like when we were standing next to it...the trunk was old, rigid and weathered, but as you look up to the newer growth, the limbs were small, smoother and more colorful.   I also wanted to capture the light of the desert. Here are a few photographs of my progress from start to finish on this canvas.  


Thank you for looking at my blog and this new painting.  Contact Kay for more information on "The Guardian".  KMW

The Many by Kay Wyne

The Many
48" x 60" Oil on Heavy Duty Gallery Wrap Canvas 
Contemporary Abstract Painting
I was in the mood for some great colors and big shapes when I started with this canvas.  I pulled out lots of my transparent to start this canvas, toning it with cad red and cad orange to get ride of the blank white canvas staring at me.  I took a large filbert and drew all over, creating lines and shapes.  I wanted to create an image that was happy, harmonious in color, and allowed the viewer to be pulled in and interested in what I put on the canvas.  Interesting comments have come to me...some viewers see horse races, a crowd of people at a football game or a floral landscape.  

"The Many" is a great title for this piece, as it allows the viewer to decide for themselves exactly what they see.  Thanks to Jake Small for naming this canvas!!!  Contact Kay for more info on this painting.  Thanks, KMW

On My Easel....by Kay Wyne

 Starting with a 48" x 60" canvas, I was needing to get rid of the white.
I started with a toned canvas, then started drawing with paint and a filbert.
I don't have a plan, I am just painting.  
More on this canvas later in the week....Today is Thanksgiving, and I hope you are enjoying the holiday with friends and family.
Happy Thanksgiving!  Kay

Go Fish by Kay Wyne

Go Fish
12" x 36" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
Starting with a base coat of Cadmium Red Deep, I covered the canvas to cover up the white canvas.  Then I took some charcoal and drew large shapes, and pulled out my palette knife.  I started finding shapes and the shapes turned into fish.  There are about a dozen fish in this painting, some are easy to see, others are hidden and implied shapes of fish.  This fun and whimsical painting is drying in the studio.  Contact Kay with any questions/comments.  Have a great day.....Kay

Random Ideas by Kay Wyne

Random Ideas
40" x 40" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Abstract
Layers and layers of color, lines and shapes make this canvas interesting and full of random ideas.  I haven't decided which way I prefer to view the painting, so I deliberately put off signing the canvas.  Turning it on it's side and mixing it up works for me.  Here it is turned, and when it is viewed like the image below, I see a vase and flowers.
I used oil bars, oil paints, charcoal, wide brushes, small brushes, palette knives and rubber clay wedges to create "Random Ideas".  It is a very loose abstract with shapes that become images and colors that are pleasant to the eye.  Contact Kay for more information on this painting or any other pieces of art posted on this blog.  Thanks for looking, Kay

Windy December by Kay Wyne


Windy December - Plein Air 
8" x 10" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Landscape of White Rock Lake
This was a memorable but cold and windy day at the lake.  I was with a group of artists painting.  The wind was the biggest challenge of the day.  I had to paint fast.  I started with a brush, but ended up scraping the panel and staring all over with the palette knife.  This painting is hanging in my house and I have to smile when I look at it...the painting experience was one that I will not forget!  Thanks for looking at this blog....Kay

Desert Colors by Kay Wyne

Desert Colors
10" x 10" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Abstract Cacti
Inspired by the desert colors of Arizona, I painted this small panel while John and I were in Tucson last month.  We explored the mountains and desert, and I painted this small panel while we were out there.  I purposely left out the details of the prickly pears...and wanted to focus more on the colors and big shapes of the desert.  I would like to take this small study and paint a very large canvas based on it...maybe a 40" x 40" or 48" x 36".  I hope to start some new paintings in the studio today.  Thank you for looking at this blog---contact Kay with any questions.  Have a great day.  KMW
