Jack Nibbles Prada-New Painting

SOLD   My new piece completed 8-27 When I think "DOG" I think of Jack Russell's.  How cute are they?  My sister has two labs and  some pretty hilarious  stories of their interior adventures while the family is at work and school. . I guess that's the inspiration here.  This painting is 9x12 painted on a hard wood surface with painted sides. The previous Pope (I already forget his name!) wore red Prada shoes so I decided it would be fun to include them.  Thanks for looking! http://catherinenolin.org/artwork/3833722-Jack-Nibbles-Prada.html

Fox and Sparrows - New painting

It's amazing how things work out sometimes in my little world.  I had a customer who wanted a commission piece for her mother as a birthday gift around the same time that I decided that I would not take on anymore new commissions.  I basically decided that I want to spend the rest of the year doing my own thing.  I felt bad turning away many requests.  As I was putting the finishing touches on this piece I received an email from that same customer who said this painting was perfect for her mother since she loved many of the items I put together so in a way it was custom.  She did ask me to add two sparrows which I think were a nice touch to represent her two sons. I'm so glad it worked out for her. 
Although I am not taking on commissions with lots of custom details I am open to creating paintings based on some simple info.  using my artistic license so that it is more imaginative.  I would require general information such as colors, flowers, places, objects, animals, over all themes without specifics.  If you are interested in contact me for pricing.

Off The Grid - Eve Strikes a Pose- my new painting

Creativity I am in a good place these days.  The ideas are flowing and not enough time to catalogue them all! Here comes  "Off The Grid- Eve striking a Greek pose. I am not happy to report that  I hardly ever get outside so maybe that's why I love to paint nature scenes and tropical flora. My husband is always telling me to get out of the studio and take a hike.  His advice is never wasted because I do become easily inspired even in my little ole neighborhood.  I do feel grateful  that I can create my own world within my studio and I am there. 
This piece is 20x16 painted on a cradled birch wood panel with painted sides.  click the link to view on my website or my etsy store.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you are having a great summer!

The Deacon's Wife -New painting

Completed on 7-18 This is my first painting after a 10 day break.  I have been looking at lots of renaissance art and reading about the symbolism used and what it all means.  Everyday objects, fruit, certain flowers and animals all have purpose beyond their obvious beauty within the paintings.  This piece is 16x12 painted on a cradled birch wood panel with painted sides.  Thanks for stopping by.
