This Arizona desert landscape is framed up and now hangs in our home. The location is Saguaro National Park East. The rough landscape of the desert was fun to paint once I had my underpainting in. I used a palette knife on the mountains, cactus and shrubs. Thanks for looking at my blog. Kay
Timeless is one of my favorite paintings...I liked it so much that I had it printed on my business cards. The colors were mixed and mixed, and are very harmonious. There is plenty of texture on the canvas...you can see the palette knife work, almost like frosting on a cake. Let me know if you have any comments or questions concerning my art...I would love for Timeless to have a new home! Kay
I think that sunflowers are interesting and beautiful, even after they have reached their peek and blooming. I bought these at Trader Joe's, and I was able to paint from them for a couple of weeks! I enjoyed painting them at all stages, and especially this wilted stage. This painting is dry and ready for a new home. Contact Kay for more info. Thanks for looking at my blog. KMW
There's something special about painting from life. It's easier to capture the colors, the lines, the textures...and the personality of the flowers. I went to my local florist, and asked for an exotic and complicated bouquet, and I got it! This was so much fun to paint. Thanks for looking at my blog! Kay
16" x 16" Oil and Silver Leaf on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Still Life
One of the benefits of having studio mates is sharing. One of my painting buddies came to the studio with a beautiful bouquet of heirloom roses. We both painted them. They were homegrown old fashioned roses full of color, and delicate petals. They were stunning, and I wanted to paint them on silver leaf, giving them a dressed-up look. This painting is drying in the studio. Thanks for looking at my blog! Contact Kay for more info on Fancy and Frilly. KMW
Who doesn't like a cheeseburger? This small panel is a great conversation piece...everyone can talk about their favorite cheeseburger joint! This painting is framable, but can also be propped up on an easel or a kitchen counter. Contact Kay for more info. Thanks for looking at my blog! KMW
Each Panel 24" x 12", overall size before framing is 24" x 24"
I just finished this in the studio! It was a fun piece to paint, with layers and layers of blooms and leaves on top of the silver leaf that I applied over a base coat of black. This colorful and free-flowing diptych will look great in a silver floater frame. Contact Kay for more information on this painting. Thanks for looking....KMW
Colour My World 16" x 20" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel Contemporary Landscape/Palette Knife Painting
Thick layers of paint applied with the palette knife cover this panel. Texture is the result, and it will take a long time for this one to dry. The colors on my palette were left over from a floral painting...and I had mixed so much paint up that I started this abstract landscape. This painting is framed in a beautiful moulding, ready to hang in a new home or office! Thanks for looking at my blog. Kay
One of my favorite subjects - hydrangeas and colorful carnations - had my attention for this painting. This contemporary still life is available for purchase and is very handsome all framed up. Thanks for looking! Kay
All framed up and hanging at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas, "Cactus Patch" is a handsome painting. The photograph I used (thanks to one of my studio mates) was the front yard of an old house in Austin, Texas. I purposefully left out the house so that I could concentrate of the blooms on the massive prickly pear. Contact the gallery for more info! Thanks for looking, Kay.
