In need of a guardian angel - a work in progress


I have painted several angels over the years.  I was recently asked if I was planning on painting another one anytime soon.  I think right about now is a good time.

The Resolving Host -New Painting


Completed 9-17-2018  My newest painting is 16x20 painted with oils on a cradled wood panel with painted sides.  I think maybe leopards are my favorite big cat to paint. They seem to go with everything! You can view my new piece here: 

  Thank you for all your emails regarding the gas explosions in our area this past weekend!  We were fortunate to have only been inconvenienced with no gas although some of our neighbors had damage to their homes .  To all my South Carolina customers I hope your are safe from the terrible hurricane.
Warm Regards,
Catherine

Night In The Museum - New painting




Completed on Monday August 13, 2018   I decided to include a few more friends here.  This one  evolved each day.  I wasn't able to get a squared shot so you see a little of the wall there on the right.  
Anyway, It's 14x18 painted with oils on a cradled wood panel with painted sides.
Thanks for looking!

What I'm working on


One of the things I am enjoying about oil painting is that you can work on several pieces at once.  I'm working on a custom piece but at the same time I am completing this 14x18 painting as well. I like pacing myself and going from one to another.  When I work in acrylics, I tend to complete one painting at a time since they dry so quickly.  This painting is a collage of sorts bringing together images I am inspired by.

Interior In Blue ~ New Painting


Completed on 7-21-2018  "Interior In Blue"  is 14x18 oils on  a cradled wood panel with painted sides.  I dream and think about color all the time.  I've happily woven together some favorite colors and things from the corners of my mind.
Thanks for looking.

On my easel


I've begun working on a 14x18 wood panel in oils.  I have really embraced oils over the past 3 or 4 months.  It forces me to pace myself and also work on several pieces at one time since layers have to dry.

Portrait Of Joan - new work


SOLD   Completed on 7-11-2018  I wanted to create an icon like painting this time.  Honestly when I started out I didn't know who she would be but had a certain look I wanted.  I came across images of Joan Of Arc and knowing a little about her story I thought she would be perfect especially at this time. This pieces can mean many things.  
Painting is a way of consoling my heart and I am so grateful to have this time.  
Thanks for looking.
