Star Gazing

 

Star Gazing
20" x 16" Oil on Panel
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
A big shout-out to Val, who took the photo that inspired me to paint this panel.  She was at White Rock Lake looking for the Bethlehem Star.  This photo is stunning...and I just had to paint it.  I started our with brushes, but decided that thick impasto would give it texture.  After laying out the painting, I took my palette knife to the piles of paint that I had mixed up.  This painting is drying in the studio.

December Sail

 

December Sail
8" x 8" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Plein Air at White Rock Lake
Yesterday was a beautiful, sunny and warm day in Dallas, so John and I went to White Rock Lake to take in the day.  ­čî× I set up to do a quick painting of the lake, with the marina in the background,  There were a few sailboat out, and I captured one in my painting.  Using a palette knife I put some scruffy tall grass in the foreground.  It was a great day!  Thanks for looking at my blog.  This painting is drying in the studio.  Contact Kay for more info.  KMW

These Days


These Days
Contemporary Abstract
Oil, Charcoal and Oil Bars on Canvas
Approximately 50" x 50" on Unstretched Canvas
These days I am into abstracts, starting with what I call a roadmap.  I draw, paint and then scrape away the oils, and do all again.  I mixed my colors and mixed more colors, and my piles of oil overlapped...so that they are harmonious. I did not plan anything, it all happened and the prussian blue lines/vase was put in at the very end...so now I have an abstract floral.  Contact Kay for more info.  Thanks for looking at my blog.  KMW

Fruit Punch

 

Fruit Punch 
16" x 16" Oil and Charcoal on RayMar Panel
Contemporary Still Life
I started painting, not knowing what I would come up with.  I started with large shapes and bold colors, painting very abstract.  I saw leaves, fruit, and then a bowl appeared, so here is my colorful still life.  I had a great time painting this one in the studio.  Thanks for looking at my blog.  Kay

Borrowed Vases


Borrowed Vases
10" x 20" Oil on Canvas
Contemporary Still Life
I started this painting months ago, after one of my studio mates brought some fresh cut flowers and cute little vases in for me to painting.  I got bored, and I was getting ready to slash the canvas yesterday, when another studio mate told me to keep on painting.  So I did, and now this whimsical and abstract creation is drying in the studio.  I am glad that I pushed myself to work on it through the "ugly duckling" stage.  Thanks for looking at my blog.  Kay

Wildflowers Galore

Wildflowers Galore
8" x 16" Oil on Panel
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
Floral landscapes make me happy, and this one is no exception.  Painted with a palette knife and large amounts of paint, I layered the clouds, then worked from the horizon line to the foreground.  I want the viewer to image standing in a field with the crisp magenta, crimson and peachy flowers at your feet.  This painting is drying in the studio, and will look great framed up once it is varnished.  Thanks for looking at my blog.  Kay

Palette Knife Painting - Contemporary Cow

 

Contemporary Cow
10" x 10" Oil on RayMar Panel
Palette Knife Painting
Yesterday I went into the studio and decided to paint with lots of vibrant oils and one palette knife.  I started by mixing my piles of color.  I added some impasto to the oils to help expedite the drying process because I had planned on using thick amounts of paint.  I was careful not to create mud, as I laid the paint onto the surface of the panel.  He was fun to paint!  This painting is drying in the studio.  Contact Kay for more info.  Thanks for looking at my blog...KMW

Looking At You

 

Looking At You
10" x 10" Oil on RayMar Panel
Contemporary Bovine Series
I got in a cow mood in the studio this week, and thought it would be fun to paint a Hereford.  I have painted bovine beauties in the past, and it was good to paint this guy for a change.  He's colorful and as he looks straight on to you, he is full of personality.  My brush strokes are loose.  The oils are thick and layered.  This painting is drying in the studio, and will be framed up.  Contact Kay for more info.  Thanks for looking at my blog!

High Drama

 

High Drama
Contemporary Abstract
24" x 24" Oil and Charcoal on Gallery Wrap Canvas
This painting is framed up and now at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas.  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.  I was experimenting with some different color combinations.  Thanks for looking at my art.  Kay
