Sunflower Power


Sunflower Power
8" x 16" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Floral Still Life
As I was playing around with the beautiful sunflowers I purchased from T.J., my eye zoomed in and I did a quick 90 minute painting.  When I paint quickly without any fussiness, my paintings are loose and free.  "Sunflower Power" is a good example of that.  These five flowers were so much fun to paint!  Thanks for looking at my blog.  Have an artful day.  Kay

Limited Palette


Limited Palette 
I painted these three 8" x 8" panels with a limited palette of Alizarin, Ultramarine, Cad Yellow Medium, and Titanium.  Clearly, you can mix wonderful colors with just three colors.  I should do it more often.  It makes me focus on composition and simplifies the painting process.  Thanks for looking at my blog...Kay

Sunflowers on my easel...


Sunflowers on my easel
A big thank you to my favorite florist, Renarldo at LHFlowers
Here I have a 12" x 16" Cotton Panel on my easel.
I am painting with thick oils, and have a fabulous still life set-up.
These flowers have layers of color and texture, lots of personality and character.  
Hope to put the final touches on this one soon!  Thanks for looking at my blog.  Kay

A Day In Saguaro


A Day In Saguaro
12" x 24" Oil on Canvas
Contemporary Landscape
This Arizona desert landscape is framed up and now hangs in our home.  The location is Saguaro National Park East.  The rough landscape of the desert was fun to paint once I had my underpainting in.  I used a palette knife on the mountains, cactus and shrubs.  Thanks for looking at my blog.  Kay
