Whirlwind by Kay Wyne

40" x 30" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Abstract
I started this abstract several months ago, and got to a point where I did not know what to do.  This had originally started out as a floral landscape, but that changed very quickly. I had some lavenders, grey and greens mixed on my palette and took the palette knife to it.  There is texture on the canvas because I used impasto to expedite the drying time.  And, there is movement on the canvas, which keeps the eye moving around the canvas.  I felt like the rotation movement looked like a whirlwind or the inside of a funnel cloud.  Kind of fast and impulsive.  Thanks for looking at my blog.  Have an artful day...Kay
