On my easel...


On my easel this week is a 24" x 24" canvas.  I am experimenting with silver leaf and some layers and layers of oils.  I used a fresh bunch of blooms from my local florist, and have almost finished it!  Some small adjustments and details to be added, but for now this canvas is drying in the studio.  I hope to return to it soon!  Thanks for looking, Kay

Iris Garden is framed up and ready for a new home.  With this panel I was pushing the colors in what I considered a lavender and green photograph, adding different shades of greens, blues and purples, with pops of orange and turqoise.  I am back in the studio after a nice vacation in the desert.  Painting some beautiful blooms!    Thanks for looking at my blog.  Kay

24" x 36" Oil and Charcoal on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Abstract
This abstract started out as a floral, and morphed into something else.  I had a very good time working on it, using lots of thick juicy oils.  At the end I wanted some calligraphy and some smaller strokes, so I used a willow charcoal stick and a small tool made for ceramics.  I like the movement and the color palette on this's happy and fun!  Thanks for looking at my blog.  Contact Kay for more info on the art posted here.  Thanks, Kay

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

Floral Commission


Floral Bouquet/Commission
16" x 16" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Floral/Palette Knife Painting
I was asked to paint a lovely bride's bouquet...and I was happy to do so!  The bride and groom sent me photos of the wedding, with the idea that I could reproduce the bouquet on canvas.  The off-white roses are surrounded by violet crocus, tiny white flowering daisies and greenery.  I used a brush to lay out the painting, and then pulled out the palette knives so that the canvas would have plenty of texture.  I applied layers and layers of paint to give the arrangement fullness and depth.  I hope that the newly weds enjoy the floral painting, as a reminder of their very special wedding day.  Thanks for looking at my blog...Kay
