There's something beautiful about a wilted, lonely sunflower needing some attention.  I used my palette knife and brush to give the viewer my impression of the potted plant.  Thanks for looking....Kay

I painted this large canvas with large brushes and a palette knife.  The process was fun, and each time I put in a layer of paint, a flower or leaf would appear.  This painting is drying in the studio, and is available for purchase.  Contact Kay with any comments or questions.  Thanks, KMW

Colors of January

 

Colors of January
8" x 8" Oil on RayMar Panel
Plein Air/White Rock Lake, Dallas
January in Dallas can be very warm or brutally cold.  Yesterday John and I went to White Rock Lake...the sun was out, but it was windy and very chilly.  The weather conditions forced me to paint fast.  I wanted to nail the colors to get a feel for the day.  The brush and scrubby trees were right in front of my set-up (see photo below).  
Thanks for looking at my art.  Please contact ME with any questions or comments.  This painting will be available for purchase once it has dried.  Kay

Cactus Colors

 

Cactus Colors
10" x 10" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Cactus Series
I put the finishing touches and a few highlights on this canvas.  I used a reference photo that is so old, that I am not sure where these blooming cactus were --- but I think they were in our front yard planter.  I hope to varnish this piece once it is dry.  Thanks for looking at my art...please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.  Kay

Desert Blooms

 

Desert Blooms
10" x 10" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

I am back in the studio...I painted this 10" square canvas using a brush and palette knife.  Putting the needles in with a knife was fun...and of course the last step.  My photo reference was one that I have had for years...might of been from a trip to Arizona, not sure.  Thanks for looking at my blog.  This painting is available for purchase.  Contact Kay with any questions or comments.  Kay
