I worked with wxPython back when I was using Python 2. I got impatient waiting for Phoenix when I switched to Python 3, so I started using PyQt as my GUI.
I'm happy with PyQt. I haven't created standalone executable files with it, though. Do they necessarily have to be large? I would think that well-written import statements would cut down on the file size. Just import the objects you need, rather than the whole namespace. PyQt is even organized in sub-modules, apparently to encourage you to refrain from importing everything.
