Abstract by Kay Wyne





Horizontal
48" x 60" 

Vertical
60" x 48"

I painted this abstract on a 48" x 60" Gallery Wrap Canvas.  It can hang vertically or horizontally.  I painted it horizontally until the last day, and at the point I turned it on it's side to reach some canvas that needed some detail and brushstrokes headed in another direction.  Turning the canvas on all four sides gives the viewer some options on hanging...

This painting started out as a landscape with a horizon line and colorful land bars.  Once my wide lines and shape started to take place, it began to look and feel like a stream of water with fish swimming upstream.  I concentrated on my color palette from the get-go, wanting pleasant and beautiful colors.  I mixed everything...nothing is straight out of a tube.  This painting is drying at the studio.  It isn't titled right now....although "Upstream" might be a good choice.  The sides of the canvas are painted with a dark vulcan grey, and framing is not necessary.  Contact Kay Wyne for more information on this contemporary abstract painting.  Kay

New "Autumn Flow" Palette Knife Oil Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Autumn Flow” ©2017 Niki Gulley
36" x 18" textured oil paint on canvas

Water pounds its way down the falls: cascading, rushing, charging into the riverbed – flowing over rocks, swiftly moving forward. Untamed, the surge finds its way over, under, around the boulder-strewn river. Tumbling waters drive up mists above the falls and the rhythmic sounds create a soothing harmony below. Meanwhile autumn’s low light casts long lines through the Aspen trees and glowing verge, illuminating the glorious foliage.

Quiet Space by Kay Wyne


Quiet Space
14" x 14" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Abstract
Soft, muted colors make this abstract a very calm and quiet painting.  I was experimenting with some new color combos on this one.  Actually, I painted over a landscape painting that I really didn't think was very good.  So there are some colors from the underpainting that peak through.  I like the cool greens, greys and grey-lavenders.  The touches of pink give it a little punch.  This painting is ready to hang---framing is optional because the sides are painted a warm grey. Contact Kay Wyne for purchasing info.  Kay

Admiration by Kay Wyne


Admiration
36" x 36" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Still Life
Floral still life paintings are a favorite of mine to paint.  Admiration was painted in a couple of days...it was one of those paintings that the process was fun and exciting and I couldn't put my brush down.  Mixing piles and piles of oils allowed me to paint with muted colors in this still life.  The muddy or dirty colors are all harmonious, with subtle shifts of colors.  The free-form lines and shapes of the background are light and airy in contrast to the flowers in the foreground.  A wide flat brush and palette knife were used to paint this canvas, which is hanging at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas.  Thanks for looking at this blog....Kay Wyne

SOLD - "Texas Impressions" Bluebonnet oil painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

"Texas Impressions" ©2016 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 24" x 12" textured oil painting

Just Sold! I painted these Texas Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush with extremely thick oil paint and palette knives to achieve depth and texture. The resulting image comes to life and is loaded with color and energy. In this vertical wildflower series, I've framed the paintings in espresso floater frames so that you can still see the textured oil paint continuing around the edges of the canvas. These Texas wildflowers look great hung alone or in a grouping, too!
