New Small Series: Itty Bitty #1

Itty Bitty #1
3" x 3" Oil on Cradle Board
Small Floral
It's a mini blue vase filled with flowers on a very teeny weeny surface.  It would of been easier for me to paint this on a 3 foot by 3 foot canvas.  I had an idea about a year ago for these small multi-media boards.  I purchased over 100 of them, so I have more Itty Bitty paintings to do!  The paint was applied with a small filbert, and I ended up pushing the paint around with a wipe-out tool.  It is drying in the studio....will post more of these fun little ones.  Thanks for looking at my blog...Contact Kay Wyne for more info.  KMW

Let The Sun Shine In

Let The Sun Shine In
40" x 30" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Abstract
Ready for a new home, this original oil painting has a lot going on.  Variations of color, shapes and lines make this abstract painting unique.  I couldn't duplicate this one if I wanted to.  I started out by tinting the canvas with some transparent colors, and then using a large filbert brush,  scrubbing in shapes.  I pulled out a small filbert once the first three layers were dry to the touch and painted lines to connect and overlap, pulling the painting together.  This painting is available for purchase.  Contact Kay for more info.  Thanks, KMW

Flashy

Flashy
4" x 4" Oil on Canvas
Contemporary Floral Abstract
4" x 4" is teeny tiny!  I applied the paint in thick globs without using an medium to thin the paint down.  I had to simplify my composition and make every stroke count with this size canvas.  This painting has the 1/2" sides of the canvas painted the deep charcoal grey that you see in the pic above, with my signature on this side.  Contact Kay for more information on this painting or any other painting posted on my blog.  Have an artful day....KMW

Dallas Days

Dallas Days
36" x 48" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Cityscape
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 it is hanging at the Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas.  Thanks for looking at this blog!  KMW

Maid-Rite Memories

Maid-Rite Memories
20" x 16" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Oil Painting
Maid-Rite is midwestern burger joint...and there once was a Maid-Rite on the main street in my hometown of Macomb, Illinois.  Several years ago John and I were visiting Macomb, and I took photos of the old building.  It was in bad shape, with broken glass, pealing paint, holes in the roof --- and has been demolished.  It had a lot of character, and everyone who has ever eaten at the Maid-Rite has those memories.  Since we will be returning to Macomb this summer, I thought painting the iconic Maid-Rite establishment was appropriate!  I wanted to capture the hometown feel of walking down Jackson Street looking up at the EAT sign.  This original oil painting is drying in the studio.  Contact Kay for more info on this painting!  Have an artful day...KMW

Signs of Summer

Signs of Summer
16" x 12" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Seascape
I had a panel that I was ready to trash, and decided to turn the panel upside down and start something new.  No more boats on this painting!  I had lots of lavenders, greys, and flesh tones on my palette, so I decided I would paint the beach.  The seagrass (thinking of Seabrook Island) is shooting out of the sand---I wish I had used some impasto on the grass, as it will take a long time for the globs of paint to dry. Thanks for looking at my blog...I hope that you can feel the sand between your toes when you see this painting.  Thanks, KMW

Opposites Attract

Opposites Attract
8" x 8" oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Abstract Still Life
How many times have we heard that saying, "Opposites attract to one another"?  OMG.  Many times.  That is what was happening here on the canvas for me.  Unexpected colors, lines and shapes all seemed to be opposites.  Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't.  This fun and whimsical abstract evolved after several days of pushing the paint out of the tubes and paint in the stick.  This painting is drying in the studio.  Contact Kay for purchasing info.  Thanks for looking at my blog...KMW

Peonies, Fruit and Fabric


Peonies, Fruit and Fabric
24" x 30" Oil on Canvas Panel
Contemporary Still Life Painting
This colorful still life is framed in a beautiful gold frame.  When I painted this, I was focusing on the light source and wanted to get the dramatic shadows painted in.  My favorite part of the painting is the fruit and the edges of the petals on the peonies.  I was letting my brush dance around, giving the petals a playful, loose look.  The apples were painted in simple strokes, with a wide bright brush.  This painting is available...contact Kay for more info.  Have a great day...KMW

At first glance, you might think that there isn't any color on this canvas.  But shades and color shifts of greys, whites, charcoals and blue make up the color palette in this painting.  Using brushes, palette knives, oil paints and oil sticks, I created this abstract in the studio over the past month.  Contact Kay for more info or comments.  Thanks for looking at my blog....KMW

Hill Country Plein Air

Hill Country Plein Air
12" x 16" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Palette Knife Painting
This scene is a beautiful pasture with the hills in the background in Wimberley, Texas. It was a warm and sunny day, so I quickly set up my easel and started layering the paint.  This clouds were moving, and it was so windy that I lost my panel to the ground.  Once I started mixing my colors I added some impasto so that the paint would dry faster.  My next painting will be down at the Blanco River.  This painting is drying, and is available for purchase.  Contact Kay for more info.  Thanks for looking...KMW

The Bridge

The Bridge
48" x 60" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Landscape Painting
Painting familiar places in Dallas is fun for me, and this location is very close to our home.  This bridge is located at White Rock Lake.  I drove over to the lake one morning and liked the layers of grass that surrounded the bridge that carries many bikers, walkers and runners.  After photographing the bridge, I went straight to the studio, wanting to capture the beauty of the lake.  The layers paint were applied with a palette knife, giving the canvas texture.  Contact Kay for more information on "The Bridge".  Thanks for looking at my blog.  KMW

Hip, Hip, Hooray!


Hip, Hip, Hooray!
40" x 30" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas 
Contemporary Abstract
Hip, Hip, Hooray! is varnished and dry---and looking for a new home.   This is a fun painting.
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!  Contact Kay for more info.  Kay

Quiet Space



Quiet Space
14" x 14" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Abstract
Soft, muted colors make this abstract a very calm and quiet painting.  I was experimenting with some new color combos on this one.  Actually, I painted over a landscape painting that I really didn't think was very good.  So there are some colors from the underpainting that peak through.  I like the cool greens, greys and grey-lavenders.  The touches of pink give it a little punch.  This painting is ready to hang---framing is optional because the sides are painted a warm grey. Contact Kay Wyne for purchasing info.  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
