Shea Baby by Kay Wyne


Shea Baby
30" x 24" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Oil Painting
Shea was our third lab, and a great dog.  She was always fetching a tennis ball.  I used bold brush strokes on the canvas, and kept the painting loose.  This painting is one of my favorites because I captured Shea's personality.  I probably need to do another pet portrait of Penny Lane and Gurl.  Even though they don't get along.  Happy day after Thanksgiving...we will be putting the Christmas tree up!  Contact Kay for more information on my animal paintings.  Kay

Day 1, Cinque Terre and Lake Como Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

"Table for Two" ©2014 Niki Gulley • 12" x 9" oil painting

Cinque Terre and Lake Como Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams
Day 1: Monterosso / the 5 Village Hike

We were greeted in Cinque Terre with gorgeous sunny weather, so the photographers and tourists headed out on our first morning on the 5 mile scenic hike high above, linking the five cities of the Cinque Terre, taking in breathtaking scenery along the way. With our paint gear, we opted to stay in Monterosso and capture this beautiful quiet courtyard, with its soft dappled light and lovely plantings.


That evening we connected with the hikers and enjoyed a delicious dinner of fresh caught seafood, local pesto and pasta, and tasty Italian wine. A great end to a perfect first day!

Last Day, Tuscany Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

"Villa with a View" ©2014 Niki Gulley • 10" x 8" Textured oil painting
Day 7, Tuscany Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

On the last day of our Tuscany Art Trek, the morning started out a little drizzly so some of us stayed and painted from inside the villa while others went into town to explore, shop and photograph. The architecture of the farmhouse is so interesting with its 6 inch wood beams, solid wood shutters, stuccoed walls, stone exterior and even the radiator below the window that I wanted to capture some of its charm with part of our view out the window. Luckily for a few minutes the sun tried peeking through the clouds, so I tried to capture some of that warmth in my painting.


While usually in the 70s and 80s when we lead the trips to Tuscany, for some reason this year it got really chilly that afternoon. So turning rain into sunshine, we lit a fire and relaxed with new friends, sharing stories, paintings and photographs from the trip. We capped the night off with an amazing dinner and drifted off to sleep, full, happy and at peace.

Bucket of Color by Kay Wyne


Bucket of Color
14" x 14" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Still Life Painting
Last weekend Merriam and Blake went to a wedding reception and brought home one of the table decorations, a small silver bucket with a beautiful arrangement in it.  I took it to the studio and set up a still life to paint.  I loved the colors and variety of shapes of the flowers and greenery.  This painting is drying at the studio, but is looking for a new home.  Contact ME for more information on this painting, or any other painting posted here.  Thanks, Kay

Day 6, Tuscany Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

On the next day of our Tuscany Art Trek, we hit the ground running by spending a full day in Florence. Visiting the Uffizi and Academy Museums with their incredible collections of Renaissance art, the impressive marble Duomo and famous Bronze Baptistry doors, wandering the cobble stone streets and admiring the stone architecture, fountains and sculptures, and allowing extra time for shopping.

We ended the day with you guessed it – another delicious meal! Then we wandered back through the romantic golden-lit streets to see the beautiful view of the Ponte Vecchio over the Arno at night.

Empty Nest Waiting by Kay Wyne

Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
Empty Nest Waiting is framed up and hanging at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas.  I used a wide brush and my palette knife to create this contemporary nest painting. You can see the wide brushstrokes in the background...I didn't get fussy with it.  I painted it, and left the paint so that the brush strokes were visible.  The sticks and twigs of the nest are thick and textured.  Thanks for looking at this blog.....Kay

Day 2, Cinque Terre and Lake Como Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

"Painted Houses," Riomaggiore ©2014 Niki Gulley • 9" x 12" Textured oil painting

Cinque Terre and Lake Como Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams
Day 2, Morning Location: Riomaggiore

After a good night's rest, we took the train that connects the five cities along the Italian coast to the southern most town of Riomaggiore. This morning the temperature was perfect, but we had more cloud cover with only occasional breaks of sunshine. Our painters set up our easels to capture this beautiful view of the colorful town and their ocean overlook while the photographers and tourists checked out the town and surroundings. 


When we had finished painting and exploring and eaten a delicious seafood lunch, we caught the scenic boat ride back to Vernazza, enjoying the ocean view of each town and its colorful architecture perched along the coast way.

Day 4, Tuscany Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

On the fourth day of our Tuscany Art Trek, we headed to the Medieval hill town of Siena, with its incredible marble Duomo, great people-watching plaza, and interesting alleyways radiating out from the campo with something new to discover around every turn. While some of our group shopped, some photographed and others relaxed on the square, I set up in one of the quiet cobble streets to capture the textures of their ancient walls and this unique old well. For dinner that night, we treated ourselves to a delicious dinner of Tuscan pizza, fresh local vegetables and of course, some amazing wines!
