Storm Brewing


Storm Brewing
12" x 16" Oil on Panel
Contemporary Seascape Painting
It's cold, rainy, icey and miserable in Texas right now.
But when I am in the warm studio, I can pretend that I am on the beach, soaking up the sun and running my toes through the sand.

Here's my set-up in the cozy studio on a cold January day.

36" x 36" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Seascape/Beach 
It's finished and drying in the studio.  I wanted to get that warm, beachy feeling on this canvas.  My hope is that the viewer will be able to feel the sand, wind and water that you only get at the beach.  Contact Kay for more information.  Thanks for viewing!  KMW

Color Converesation


Color Conversation
36" x 36" Oil on Heavy Duty Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Floral
I loved painting this canvas in the new studio with lots of natural light shining down on the easel.  I used brushes and palette knives to apply the thick juicy oils.  On the vase, I carved out the paint to make the pattern play.  I focused on mixing harmonious colors as I worked my way through this painting.  Adding shapes and lines as I progressed, it was so fun to paint.  Contact Kay for more info on her art!  Thanks for looking....Kay

Boat Party

 Boat Party
(Thank you, LB for the title recommendation.)
38" x 44" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Seascape/Palette Knife Painting
This painting has been on my easel for months, and I just put my last brushstroke on it.  Now it is drying in the new studio, waiting to be varnished.  I started with a reference photos from Naxos, then added a boat from Scotland, and finally some Michigan boats.  I just found out that this painting has been accepted into the Dutch Art Gallery Annual Juried Art Show!  Thanks for looking at my art....Kay
