This painting was a donation for a fundraiser, and sold last week at the auction/party/event! I am thrilled to know "First Rooster" has a new home. I am back in the studio working on two paintings that got pushed aside several months ago, and are probably 80% completed. Thanks for looking at my blog. Kay Wyne
Lots of painting, scraping, painting and knife work went into this contemporary still life painting. Layers of oil were applied with a brush, followed by a palette knife scraping and cutting into the paint. This floral is available and would brighten up any wall! Contact Kay Wyne for more information on this original oil. Thanks, KMW
Finished! This painting is drying on my easel. The soft, fluffy clouds give this painting a happy feeling, while the calm blue water wanders across the canvas. I used a brushes and palette knives on this landscape. There are hints of flowers popping up, along with tall grass, and a hidden path leading to the water. Contact Kay Wyne for more information on this contemporary landscape. Thanks for looking at my blog! Kay
This painting was gifted to a couple in Memphis, TN...I am thrilled that "Road Map" has a new home! I loved the pink, green and turquoise in this palette knife painting. I am in the studio today working on some new paintings. Thanks for looking at my blog....Kay Wyne
This colorful landscape painting is ready to hang in a home or office setting. Most of the painting was created with oils and a brush, with some palette knife work on the tree trunk and leaves, giving it texture. Contact Kay for purchasing information. Thanks for looking at this blog...KMW
Painted on a gallery wrap canvas, a field of colorful flowers makes this painting happy and fun to view. This painting is ready to hang, with sides of canvas painted, framing is optional. Contact Kay Wyne for purchasing information. Thanks for looking at this blog....Kay Wyne
This painting is sitting on my easel, drying. It has some details that you may not be able to see---lots of spiney needles. This was a fun painting...the prickly pear cactus has many interesting shapes and characteristics. I used a brush and palette knife to apply the layers of color. This painting is available for purchase. Contact Kay Wyne for more info. Thanks, Kay
Using my palette knife, lots of paint and impasto, I applied layers of paint on this canvas and painted very fast. I used some left-over paint from another painting that was going to dry up. So I scraped, pulled and pushed the paint to create "Lush". Contact Kay Wyne for more information. Thanks, KMW
Prickly Pear II 16" x 12" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel Contemporary Cacti Painting
Here's the companion painting to Prickly Pear I. Cactus is a new subject matter for me...and I love the way the grow, the layers of shapes, the shadows and of course those wicked needles.
The diptych size is 16" x 24", with the possibilities of framing the panels separately or together in one frame. Thanks for looking at my blog...Both of these paintings are drying, but are available for purchase. Contact Kay Wyne for more information. Thanks, Kay
Finished! This was fun to paint. The shapes and colors of the prickly pear cactus are so interesting, and I was able to exaggerate the colors. I have a companion piece, Prickly Pear II that I will post tomorrow. This painting is drying in the studio, but is available. Thanks for looking at my blog...Kay Wyne
As with most of my paintings, this one went through several phases. I started with three layers of transparent color, painting chaos and just getting the canvas covered. I like the indigo, so I started drawing a boat, but it quickly turned into stripes and then an abstract floral. There is a companion canvas.....which was meant to be a diptych. But the composition wasn't working out for a 36" x 72" format. If you look closely you can see the drips, the lines, the layers of color. This painting is drying in the studio---I might need to add a few touches of darks on the petals. The sides of the gallery wrap canvas are painted a dark Vulcan Grey. Framing is not necessary.
