Best Day


Best Day
16" x 20" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Landscape Painting
On a recent trip to Santa Fe, John Wyne and I took the High Road to Taos and drove through a wonderful part of New Mexico.  The long and winding road took us through some amazing countryside.  One of my favorite things to photograph is old churches, missions and cemeteries.  The wildflowers were scattered through the cemetery, which was located next to a country church on top of a hill.  The old stones and graves have character, making it a great subject to paint.  The day after we returned to Dallas from the trip, I had to paint the scene while it was fresh in my mind.
Here it is framed up in a new Randy Higbee Gallery Frame.  The moulding is 3 1/2 inches wide, so total framed piece is 22 1/2" x 26 1/2" with a rubbed grey stain and gold lip. This painting is hanging in the studio...if you have any questions or comments, please contact ME.  Thanks for looking at this blog....have an artful day.  Kay

I See Everything

I See Everything
36" x 18" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Piggy Painting
I photographed this very large pig on a farm in the midwest.  I loved his coloring and his eyes...although you can't see them, I know he was seeing everything around him.  He filled up the canvas, with his imposing size.  This painting is at the studio and is looking for a new home.  Contact Kay for purchasing info.  Thanks for looking...Kay

Blue Skies Above

Blue Skies Above
24" x 36" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Landscape Painting
Blue Skies Above is now one of my favorite paintings in the studio.  I reworked this painting several times, and I worked on the color changes.  The sky is very thick with layers of oil applied with the palette knife and wide brush.  The greens and grey lavenders are earthy.  The sky and horizon line fade in the distance.  Your eye can follow the road as it wanders through the painting.  This painting would look great in a frame, although it can be hung without.  Contact Kay for more info.  Thanks for looking....Kay
