On My Easel - Thoughtful

On My Easel...
Thoughtful
24" x 24" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas 
Contemporary Botanical
My painting was put on hold for several weeks, but I am back in the studio and my easel has been kind to me.  I couldn't paint the beautiful arrangement given to me by friends during my recuperation.  Of course I took photos of the arrangement as reference.  This week I have been painting for the sake of painting...and it was so much fun!  Thanks to my friends for being so thoughtful! This painting is very close to being finished.  I will let it sit on the easel, and make any minor adjustments.  Thanks for looking...Kay

It's summertime on the front porch, looking at the lake with some fresh peonies blooming.  A typical Michigan day, filled with sunshine and lovely colors.  This painting was painted just after we returned from Charlevoix, Michigan.  It's a reminder just how beautiful Up North is.  Contact Kay with any questions or comments.  Thanks, KMW

Petals

 

Petals
12" x 12" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Botanical Still Life/Palette Knife Painting
I was happy to be in the studio yesterday as it was over 100 degrees outside.  Summertime in Texas is hot!  I had a good time painting this floral.  I wanted to paint quickly with my brushstrokes and knife marks hitting the canvas, putting it down, and leaving it alone.  This painting is drying in the studio.  Thanks for looking at my art....KMW

High Drama

 

High Drama
Contemporary Abstract
24" x 24" Oil and Charcoal on Gallery Wrap Canvas
High Drama is a good example of experimentation.  I challenged myself to paint with a different color combinations than normal.  As I painted, I pushed and pulled the flowers, moving the paint.    I wanted the flowers to go in and out of focus, and loose some edges.  If you look closely, you can see I used charcoal to draw into the paint.  Thanks for looking at my art.  This painting is available for purchase.   Kay
