Sun, Sand, and The Rock

Sun, Sand, and The Rock
16" x 20" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Seascape Painting
Here's a beachy painting that strikes a cord with all who have visited or spent anytime on the beach at Sequanota Club, located on the shores of Lake Charlevoix.  Northern Michigan is a wonderful summertime retreat, and we have many photos of family and friends on "The Rock".  I used a palette knife and built up the rock with lots of oil paint...so it will take a while for this to dry!  Contact Kay with any questions or comments on this contemporary seascape.  I can't wait to frame it up!  Thanks for looking, Kay

Hip, Hip, Hooray!


Hip, Hip, Hooray!
40" x 30" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas 
Contemporary Abstract

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!  Contact Kay for more info.  Kay

Cousin Crew

Cousin Crew
10" x 12" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Our little grandsons love playing together...I took a photograph of them rolling around in the grass in Northern Michigan this past summer.  Peter and Little Charlie are sitting upright, and Ollie is flat on his back...they are all looking at something or someone as they are tackling the beach ball.  It's fun to watch them interact as they develop their own personalities.  Painting skin tones are tough, but my objective was to capture the fun and playful spirit of these cousins.  My favorite part of the painting is Ollie's scabby knee!  Thanks for looking at my blog...Kay

Fresh Pick


Fresh Pick
40" x 40" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Still Life Painting
Variety is the spice of life!  With this painting I
made sure that there was variety in color, shapes, brush 
technique, textures, values, and of course the wide range
of blooms.  Probably my most favorite flowers in the still life
are the sunflowers...I like the droopy and irregular 
shapes that happen with the weight of the flower.  This 
painting is available for purchase.  Contact Kay for

Cotton Candy

Cotton Candy
40" x 40" Oil, Oil Bar and Charcoal on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Abstract
This large canvas went through a lot of changes over the past week...Layers of drawings, brushwork and scraping finally got me to the place where I felt like this abstract was finished. It's drying in the studio, with the sides of the canvas painted a dark vulcan grey.  (Framing is optional....it's wired, and ready to hang!)  The spice of turquoise offsets the muted pinks, whites and greys.  When you look up close you can see drawings in charcoal that come and go.  I named this abstract Cotton Candy because it of the shades of pink...and it was so much fun to create!  Thanks for looking at my blog..Kay

Meet Me At Cadillac Ranch


Meet Me At Cadillac Ranch
36" x 48" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Painting the iconic Cadillacs located outside 
Amarillo, Texas turned out to be so much fun!
First go-around with the layout of the cars was too small so I drew
over it with a brush and made them larger than life.
There are layers and layers of paint, applied with a palette knife, brush,
scraper, and various wipe-out tools.  Pieces of the red-toned
canvas peak through---giving the painting a variety of 
textures.  This painting is looking for a new home---contact 
Kay for more information. Thanks for visiting my blog.  KMW

Blue Vase

Blue Vase
Oil on Arches Oil Paper 22" x 30"
Contemporary Abstract
Using a rubber clay tool, a wipe-out tool, brushes and palette knives I pushed the paint around on the paper.  The paper is has different qualities than canvas or linen.  It seems to soak up the oils immediately, not allowing me to play with the paint.  I left a one and half inch border of white paper.  This piece will require mounting and framing.  Contact Kay for more info.  Thanks for looking at my blog.  KMW

Oil and oil bar on Arches paper 22" x 30"
Here's my first try at painting on paper...it was different-----I usually paint on linen, canvas or panels.  I left a one and half inch white border from the edge of the deckled paper to the artwork.  I missed the texture of canvas, but experimented with oils, charcoal and oil bars.  More works on paper to come.  Thanks for looking at my blog.  Kay

Dallas Days

Dallas Days
36" x 48" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary City Scape
Inspired by a plein air experience at White Rock Lake, I decided that I would go with a large canvas --- 36" x 48" in the studio. The subject matter was the same, with the Dallas skyline in the background, White Rock Lake and the tall grass on the hill in the foreground. Wide brushstrokes and palette knife work were used to create this cityscape. Currently hanging at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas...contact the gallery or Kay Wyne for more info.

Tranquil

Tranquil
12" x 36" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Landscape
Tranquil is a quiet and peaceful painting.  The colors are soft and pleasing to the eye, mixed up, all harmonious to each other.  I used a large palette knife to apply the paint, and a rubber clay tool to cut into the paint.  There is a lot of texture on the canvas because I used impasto with the oils...it's hard not to touch it because of the mounds of paint!  The sides of the canvas are painted a Portland Grey, so it is ready to hang.  Contact Kay with any questions or comments.  Thanks for looking....KMW

Abstract Landscape

Abstract Landscape
(Needs a title!)
12" x 36" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
I was into mixing and mixing colors on my palette, and realized that my piles of beautiful oils were getting bigger and bigger...so I started laying on the paint with the knife, cutting into the paint to make my mark.  The paint is chunky and thick.  There was a still life painting started on this canvas, so when I cut through the paint, the underpainting does show through in bits and pieces.  This landscape is drying in the studio.  It is ready to hang, with the sides of the gallery wrap canvas painted a deep grey.  Thanks for looking at my blog...Contact Kay with any questions or comments.

12" x 24" Oil on Canvas
Contemporary Landscape
I had mixed piles and piles of beautiful colors for a previous canvas, and when I completed the painting I decided that I needed to use the paint up.  I grabbed a toned canvas and started putting in the sky and the field.  It all fell into place.  All the colors are harmonious because they are mixed---nothing straight out of the tube.  I did use some impasto, so texture is a big part of this painting.  I have a great frame for it, and it will bee handsome framed up!  Contact Kay with any questions or comments.  Thanks for looking at my blog.
