About the Artist
Kay Walton is a full-time artist who creates paintings of distinction. She is continually inspired by Texas landscapes, especially the beautiful Hill Country dotted with oaks, sparkling streams, winding roads and quaint farmhouses. Kay’s paintings reflect her years of study with many teachers. Classes with renowned painter and master teacher William Henry Earle and with his protegée Carole Pyburn profoundly influenced her development as an artist. (Pyburn had studied with Ray Froman in addition to her years of study with Earle. Both Froman and Earle had received their training from the Art Students League of New York City and went on to illustrious careers in the art world.) It is the art theory they taught which influenced Kay’s work, particularly in the utilization of color and light.
Learning to refine her skill has been a lifelong passion. Kay has been painting professionally for thirty years. Today she is well known for her extraordinary bluebonnet paintings. She is a native Texan with a strong connection to the natural beauty of the state, and she travels often to the Hill Country and other regions to paint and renew her inspiration for new works. Teaching artistic theory to aspiring painters is also a commitment she made twenty years ago. She happily shares her knowledge with others and supports the arts by giving her time to worthwhile causes. Each year she conducts workshops and classes, in addition to her regimen of daily painting in her studio.
