Bursting With Joy by Kay Wyne

Bursting With Joy
16" x 20" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Floral Still Life
Last Saturday I painted a demonstration to the visitors at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas, and Bursting With Joy was the end result.  I had a gorgeous arrangement full of interesting colors and shapes.  The vase was very tall and cylinder, so I painted a portion of it so that I could get more florals than anything on my canvas panel.  Once this dries, the gallery will frame it up.  The show, Kaleidoscope will hang at the gallery for the month of February.  If you haven't seen it, please go see the paintings that Sharon Hodges, Lisa Reed and I have created for the gallery.  Thanks for looking at my blog....Kay Wyne

Shea Baby by Kay Wyne

Shea Baby
30" x 24" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Oil Painting
This is one of my all-time favorite paintings that I have created....of Shea, the family dog....our yellow Lab.  I like the wide and loose brushstrokes, the color palette, and of course the subject matter.  She is larger than life, and in your face with her tennis ball.   I wanted to capture her personality and energy on the canvas.  Shea Baby isn't with us anymore, but when I look at this canvas it reminds me what a great family pet she was.  Contact ME for more info on my paintings.  Thanks for looking....Kay

Grey Skies by Kay Wyne

Grey Skies
30" x 40" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas 
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
A storm off in the distance, rumbling clouds and a wide open grassy pasture make this painting moody.  Or you might not see what I see...and see shapes and colors in a very abstract way.  Variations in color and texture make this palette knife painting interesting.  If you would like to know more about this painting, contact ME.  Thanks for looking at this blog....Kay

Painting Demonstration - Contemporary Floral by Kay Wyne

Yesterday's painting demonstration at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas
was attended by quiet a few friends and collectors.  I chose this beautiful
floral arrangement as my subject matter, picked up a 20" x 16" RayMar
Cotton Panel, and took off.....

After looking at the vertical format, I decided it would be a much more interesting painting if I used a horizontal format.  I took some Cad Orange and toned the white canvas down.
 I quickly sketched it out on my canvas, then started laying in the colors.  I worked on this for about two hours, before the reception started.

Here is the final painting....it is drying at the gallery, and will probably be framed.  It was great putting on the show with studio mate Sharon Hodges and Santa Fe Artist Lisa Adams Reed.  Thanks to Selena for the beautiful floral arrangement, and Dutch Art Gallery for hosting a successful show!  I believe that seven of my paintings were sold!!!  Thanks, Kay Wyne
