Big Guy by Kay Wyne

Big Guy
30" x 30" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
Painted on a heavy-duty 2 1/2" thick gallery wrap canvas, this rooster is looking for a new home.  As you can see in this pic, the sides are painted and a frame is not necessary.
Through out most of the painting, the paint was applied with thick, bold strokes with the palette knife.  The application of paint created texture on the canvas.  This contemporary rooster was named Big Guy because of his imposing stance.  The rooster is bold and bossy, and would be a conversation starter in any room.  Contact Kay with any questions or comments.  Thanks for looking at this blog!  Kay

Gertrude by Kay Wyne

8" x 6" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Rooster and Chicken Series
Gertrude is a small chicken painted on a panel.  I used a new Monarch Bright #10 on this painting...there is nothing like painting with a new brush!  It was really cold and windy outside, so I don't feel like I got a great photo...will need to re-do that.  Her comb is heavy and falling off the canvas.  Contact Kay for info on Gertrude.  Thanks for looking...Kay

The Comb-Over by Kay Wyne

The Comb-Over
8" x 8" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Rooster and Chicken Series
This colorful and fun chickie is my neighbor, and lives in the Dallas city limits, just across the alley.  I thought her comb was interesting, and I like the way it flops to one side...kind of like a comb-over.  I need to ask my neighbors what her name is.  This painting is drying at the studio, but if you would like to give The Comb-Over a new home, contact Kay.  Thanks for looking at my art, and good luck to all the artists participating in the painting challenge.  We are more than 3/4 of the way finished with Leslie's challenge!  Kay

"Summer Breeze"

10 x 8"
Acrylic paint on 1/8" thick panel. 
This is my friend Kimme's horse. She graciously let me do a painting
from the beautiful photo she took of him. Kimme is a wonderful person 
who is a true advocate for animals and works endlessly for them. 
Every year she puts on a huge event to sponsor 
I am honored to know her and the horses at the rescue are 
lucky to have her on their side! 

I'm donating 20% of the sale of this painting 
to California Coastal Horse Rescue

I Rule The Roost
4" x 4" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel

I enjoyed painting this guy----He has a little bit of attitude, and is taking a stance on the roost situation.  This little panel can be framed or just sit up on an easel.  Contact Kay to purchase.  Thanks for looking...I can't believe that we are half way through the challenge!  KMW

Red Rooster by Kay Wyne

Big Red
4" x 4" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Rooster Painting
This little rooster --- even though he is called Big Red, has bold brushstrokes, and is a very simple painting.  You can see the strokes on the cotton panel.  It was way too cold for me to go outside and photograph-I usually take all of my pics in natural light outside the studio.  So there is a little shine on the panel.  I have a shorthorn started and he is sitting on my easel...I can't wait to get to the studio today to work on him.  Thanks for looking at this blog.  Contact Kay with any comments or questions.  KMW

Rooster by Kay Wyne

24" x 24" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Rooster Series
I just finished this rooster after working on it for several months.  I would work on him, and then get pulled away to do something else.  He is standing in tall grass, looking for a new home.  This is on a gallery wrap canvas, so framing is not necessary.  I need to give this guy a name, but it just hasn't happened.  Let me know if you have any suggestions for a good name for this rooster.  This is day 7 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge with Leslie Saeta.  Be sure to check out all of the neat art posted on her blog.  Thanks for looking at this blog...have an artful day.  Kay Wyne

Oreo by Kay Wyne

18" x 18" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Bovine Painting
I can honestly say that this guy has been hanging around the studio for months...unfinished.  I believe that this sweet cow lives on my Uncle Scott's farm in Illinois.  I started this canvas over a year ago, and changed the background color a couple of times, then I got stuck on his creamy, soft face.  I pulled Oreo out and he sat on my easel...once I put his eye in, he was easy to finish.  Pushing myself to paint 30 paintings in 30 days with the Leslie Saeta Paint Challenge inspires me to paint faster, smarter and manage my time better.  Contact Kay Wyne if you are interested in Oreo...he is looking for a new home.  Happy New Year!  Kay
