This new piece speaks for itself. I like to do one holiday themed painting each year and this idea felt appropriate. It's difficult to see in the photo but there is a cardinal on the hedge on the left. I plan on spending the next week organizing my Etsy shop. I have many new prints that will be available and will be retiring some old ones as well. This painting will be available as note cards. Thanks for stopping by. www.catherinenolin.org to view this painting on my website.

Completed on 11-14-2015 -The Gatekeepers is my newest painting. I am so grateful to be able to express myself in this way. I cannot begin to tell you the joy and peace that I receive when I paint. Whether its in the midst of turmoil, anxiety or profound sadness I am transported when I step into my studio. All is forgotten and I am there in control of my world . The Gatekeepers is painted on a birchwood panel and is 20x16 with painted sides. Thank you for stopping by. You can click the link to view on my website with purchase information.

Completed on November 6th. There is much meaning behind this painting I just completed today (at 11:11 btw). The inspiration for it comes from the title. It went through so many changes before I got it the way I wanted it. In some ways it is my self portrait although I do not play the violin. I will leave it at that and let you interpret. It's 12x16 painted on a cradled birchwood panel with painted sides. click the link which will take you to my website for more info. http://catherinenolin.org/artwork/3877249-The-Minor-Fall-The-Major-Lift.html
Thanks for looking.

Completed on 10-15. I am wrapping up my studio work early this week. I am off to New York to see the Frida Kahlo Exhibit at the Botanical Gardens, a treat from my sister who lives in CT. I can't wait. This painting is an eclectic mixture of things that I have curated. I always wanted a Dalmatian growing up and a zebra as well. This painting is 11x14 painted on a cradled birchwood panel with painted sides. Thanks for stopping by. I'm sure I will be totally inspired after this weekend!

SOLD/ Completed on Oct.10th Sleep is something I think about all the time. I suppose I paint people resting and sleeping often because I am trying to figure out how to make my son (Sam) sleep more than 4 hours a night. It's a complicated situation but this is one way I keep it front and center. Winter is coming but I can never get enough peonies and oceans and tiger stripped kitties!
Thanks for stopping by.
