I'm back home...after a month in Illinois and Michigan. I have been painting, but because of travel and computer issues, I have taken a break from blogging. Here is a plein air painting that I painted from the cottage porch overlooking the lake. It made it back to Dallas, and I hope to frame it. Stay cool...I am staying inside the comforts of the air conditioned studio working on a commission. Contact Kay with any comments/questions. KMW
Up North the fourth of July is celebrated big-time...picnics, fireworks, swimming, boating, sailing, and lots of outdoor fun with friends and family. The day after was quiet in comparison, but lovely. I ventured down to the Klingbeil Cottage and painted outdoors. The birch trees were beautiful with Lake Charlevoix in the background. Here is a pic of myself painting en plein aire.
I am thrilled that this painting has a new home...in Ironton, Michigan. It will be framed up and hang in a beautiful cottage not far from where I painted this panel. Thanks for looking at my blog...Contact Kay with any comments or questions. Artfully yours, Kay
Colorful, whimsical, and busy describe this abstract painting. I used palette knifes, wide brushes, oils and oil bars to create this painting. It would look great framed up in a home or office setting. Contact Kay for more info. Thanks for looking at my blog. KMW
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. This painting is hanging at Dutch Art Gallery. Thanks for looking at this blog! KMW
