Hibiscus - 5.75 x 7.75 Encaustic on Board

I have worked a little in encaustic. Because the paint has to be melted on a heated palette, the work environment gets very hot and very toxic. Therefore, living in the south, my encaustic season is limited. I'm looking forward to the fall season to arrive so I can open the studio and work on some new paintings.

In anticipation of some FABULOUS new paintings in encaustics, I have started my blog devoted to encaustics. I have also joined with a couple of fellow encaustic artists to contribute to another blog Hot Wax Paintings.

Eleven Eggs by Kay Wyne

This contemporary oil painting is on my favorite size canvas...18" x 18". These eleven eggs are nestled in the nest that has just about every color in it. After painting this one, I have painted several other nests...empty nest, two eggs, three eggs, four eggs and more.

Candyland by Grant Schirpik

My latest 2 paintings in a planned series of six candy-related paintings. These paintings are 40"x30" in size. As a graphic designer by profession and a kid at heart, it's obvious why I'm drawn to this subject matter. I love the bright colors, and the nostalgia associated with these two brands. Plus, package design has always been of interest to me. When I see these candies I'm reminded of going to the movies as a child and the whole sensory overload of the visuals, sounds and the chewy stuff in my mouth that I would spend the rest of the day trying to pick from my teeth. Candy makes people happy and I want my paintings to have that same affect, and to remind the viewer of those times in the theater at some animated Disney cartoon or some great classic from the past when worries were few and a new adventure could be found at the next matinee

3 Crows - Encaustic

This painting is done entirely in pigmented wax (encaustic). It is a very interesting medium. I love the surprise I get with my paintings. Once I have painted with the wax, I then fuse it with a hot blow gun. At that point, I lose most of my control. SURPRISE!

I'm starting a new blog devoted to encaustics, please bookmark it and keep up with the updates. It is too hot (in Texas) to work in encaustic, so this fall I will be posting new paintings. Until then, I will be posting my pieces from past cool weather seasons.

"Tyler - Under Da Sea " - by Carol Morgan

It is time to submit a painting to the McKinney Avenue Contemporary Show celebrating their 15 years of operation. My painting is of a little fellow named Tyler that has 15 sea creatures on his hat! Hats off to the MAC!

"Break Time"

I decided to do the challenge in a little bit different stroke....pen and ink and watercolor.  It's always fun to see everyone's interpretation of this fun exercise.

Different Strokes from Different Folks Challenge

I'm finished with this painting for the Different Strokes from Different Folks challenge but I am having the hardes time getting a good photograph of it. There are glares that I can't figure out how to diffuse. The only medium I used was walnut oil. I've never had a problem before. The paint is Prussian Blue.

Fence Shadow by Carol Morgan

This painting is an 8x24 oil on gallery wrap canvas. This is a typical sight in South Texas that my friend, Terry Porter captured with her camera lense. Although I modified it slightly, it is essentially her photo. I can almost smell the fresh grass on this fence-line. Visit my blog.


18 x 24
Acrylic, Framed


This charming winery in Sonoma Valley is a reflection of the old world, Italian charm of the Wine Country Region in California. I really related to it. This is actually the second painting I have sold from the region. The other was sold to give as a wedding gift to a couple who got married at the winery. Just looking at it makes me want to go back as soon as possible. I know this painting will be happy in it's new home.

Dash Of Red by Kay Wyne - SOLD

Dash of Red was a commission for a friend in Prosper, Texas. This contemporary oil painting is on gallery wrap canvas. I was asked to create something abstract, and given certain colors to work off of. It would be placed on a plain and boring wall, so I knew that the art had to have some pizazz and energy. It took me three days to paint, which is longer than usual for me to crank out a painting. When I borrowed the painting back from the owners to photograph it, my friend said that she and her husband truly missed it on the wall. I am glad it has found the perfect home.
