I am happy to say that this painting just sold and has a new home in Dallas! I believe that the new owners plan on custom framing this painting, which was inspired by the fabulous colors at the Dallas Arboretum. Thanks for looking at my blog...I am currently working on a commission and some new works. Have an artful day...KMW
I am happy to say that Passionate Petals found a new home over the weekend! Collectors from Dallas visited the Open Studio Tour, and picked out some colorful florals for their home. Thank you to everyone who came through the studio to see when me and my studio mates create! Thanks for looking at my blog. Kay
Each canvas is 24" x 48", but hang them side by side and you have a large square. This palette knife painting has layers of beautiful colors and movement. Punches of tangerine and turquoise against the greys, lavenders, pinks and blues make this abstract interesting. Contact Kay Wyne for more information on this contemporary palette knife painting. It is available for purchase. Thanks, Kay
These company pieces are fun, colorful and textural. There are layers and layers of paint, lines and palette knife work. Posey I & Posey II can be sold separately or together...whatever works for your wall space! Thanks for looking at my blog. Have an artful day! Kay
This sweet little painting has a new home! Thanks to Pam Massar of Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas for framing and selling this contemporary floral. It's small, but has lots of punch with thick palette knife work. The custom frame makes this colorful painting very special. Thanks for looking at my blog. I am working on a commission in the studio!

This beach scene is familiar to those who frequent Sequanota Club, located in Northern Michigan. This massive rock has been on the beach and the anchor to many family photos throughout the years. I wanted the rock to be the focal point of the painting, so I used impasto and a palette knife to achieve some interesting texture and shapes. I had fun with the water, sand and grass using a wide bright and filbert. This painting is drying in the studio...thanks for looking at my blog. Kay
The 40" x 40" canvas was toned with some magenta, transparent orange and cad yellow. I wanted a thin wash to cover up the white canvas. I started drawing the horizon line, the shoreline and some shapes for the rocks. And the rock...
Starting to put in the sky and water. I wanted to get the water color right...lots of violets and carribean, and cobalt. I also started mixing some muddy greens, greys and browns for the sand. I am not concerned about the big rock right now, as I plan on using a palette knife to paint it, one of the last things to paint on this canvas.
I have started moving the paint around, but also wanting some of the initial undertones to peak through. Having the oranges, magentas and pinks show through will make this painting more exciting and vibrant. More painting in the studio today... Thanks for looking at my blog. Kay
"I Can See Forever" is dry, varnished and hanging at the studio. Using a big filbert brush to paint with, you can see the thick paint and brush marks on the canvas. I purposely left some of the tinted canvas peaking through in the sky and clouds. The magentas, reds, ochres in the foreground fade as they go back into the horizon. I want the viewer to look at this painting and have a good feeling when looking at the open landscape with the big puffy clouds passing by. Contact Kay for more info. Thanks for looking at my blog.

The Gabber Sold 8" x 8" Oil on RayMar Panel So glad to know that The Gabber has a new home in Ft. Worth! I will be at the Pottery Barn in Ft. Worth Wednesday and Saturday of this week. Come see me if you are in the area. Thanks for looking...Kay
I finished this painting yesterday in the studio. I mixed and mixed my colors in stages over several days as I have about 6 layers of paint on this vertical canvas. I wanted the colors and shapes to change in size, shape and value as the eye wanders over the canvas. The colors are very pleasant to the eye, as they are harmonious, even though I was mixing and mixing...and not matching piles of color.
I give a big shout out to Interior Designer Lee Small, as she saw a photo of this painting and her response was, "Hip, Hip, Hooray!". That grabbed me. I asked her if I could use that for the title. Of course she smiled, and said "yes", and she also told me it reminded her of the crowd at a TCU football game.
What do you see when you look at this painting? I would be interested, because I saw a wildflower field when I was painting it. My imagination took over and I focused on the act of painting and the color relationship through this painting journey. I enjoyed it all the way! Thanks for looking at this blog!

This abstract painting sold over the weekend, and is going to a new home in Ft. Worth. If you are in the area, stop by the Pottery Barn on University and see my work hanging in the store. Here are a few pics of my paintings placed in the store. I will be donating 10% of all sales to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Thanks for looking at my blog...Contact Kay for more information. KMW
It took a while, but with the help of my husband, John "Whispy" now has a name. This painting is drying in the studio, and would look great in a home or office setting. Contact Kay for more info on this contemporary landscape painting. Thanks, KMW
Crowd Pleaser has a new home in Ft. Worth. I couldn't be happier, because I know that the young family who purchased my painting appreciates art, and it looks fabulous in their dining room. Thank you to Lee Small Fine Art for making the connection and sale. Thanks, Kay
Finished~!!! I hope that Liz sees this, as she has followed it through all the stages...beginning, middle, middle, and some more, and now the final painting. It is signed, varnished and drying at the studio. And it is finished just in time for my show at Pottery Barn in Fort Worth, Texas. More on that show to come...Thanks for looking at my blog. Contact ME for more info on this fun and colorful floral painting. Kay
I just varnished this painting at the studio yesterday, and now this painting is ready for a new home. It will be in an upcoming exhibit in Ft. Worth. When I look at this painting, it immediately takes me back to our summer in Charlevoix. The Michigan colors of the water and sky are unlike any other. Contact Kay for more information on this painting or any of the other pieces posted here on this blog. Thanks for looking, Kay
This canvas is full of color and texture, and would add a punch of excitement to a home or office wall. This painting does not need to be framed, as the paint is wrapped around the stretcher bars on all four sides. Contact Kay Wyne for more information on this contemporary abstract. Thanks for looking at this painting! Kay
"Crowd Pleaser" is signed, and drying at the studio...Starting this painting with transparent washes, I had a couple of ideas in mind for this rather large canvas. I have been wanting to paint a large floral landscape, then I thought it was about time to paint some roosters. In the end, a very abstract floral landscape appears...but one very different from what I was working on in the beginning. My husband, John said that it looks like a crowd of people, and along with the pleasant colors I used, he suggested the title. I am alway open to suggestions when it comes to naming my canvases...and I thought he nailed it. "Crowd Pleaser" works for me! Layers of mixed colors applied with brushes, allow the canvas to have paint built up in some areas. This painting is available for purchase...contact Kay for more info. Thanks for looking at my blog!
