The Fox , The Hound and Magpie ~ New Painting

Friday afternoon and it's so gray and snowy here again.  After 30 inches of the white stuff from  Tuesday, we are expecting another foot on Monday. Although it's getting to be a bit of  a downer,  I am fortunate I work at home not to mention I love my job!
This painting is 11x14 created  on a cradled birch wood panel.  The sides are painted to match.
Thanks for looking.

Secret's From The Garden -New painting



Just completed a few minutes ago.  I was due for a classic still life but with a twist of course! When my husband sees this he will say-Caterpillars don't come out of eggs- Well in my world they do and out of Faberge Eggs! He's much too much of an engineer to critique my  paintings! BTW I don't think the caterpillar made it too far..  12x16 painted on birch wood cradled panel with painted sides. https://www.etsy.com/listing/219306791/still-life-painting-flora?ref=shop_home_active_1

British Vignette~ New Painting

www.catherinenolin.org
After a long break, I finally got back into my groove this week.   This is my first painting of the new year.  I thought it would be fun to create a piece with a British theme.  I found plenty of inspiration ~Wedgewood, Corgi's, Queens and bowler caps! The painting within is a familiar image except I've replaced the apple with a spot of tea. Dimensions are   24" x 18" and painting on a cradled birchwood panel. 
On another interesting synchronistic note.  I received an email from a student in England who shared with me that her class (high school) is researching my work for a project they are doing.  They will be recreating some of my nature inspired pieces. I had the idea for this painting long before I received the email from this student.  Thanks for stopping by.

The week with Sam is over.

"I have looked into his eyes more than I’ve ever looked into anyone’s. I’ll never know his thoughts, but our connection is powerful. He possesses an intangible, indefinable beauty. I love my son in a way I will never love anyone else." Writing by a mother with a son with special needs.
I came across an article last night and now I cannot find it again to give proper credit but she so poignantly penned how I feel.

Caterina's World-New Work









completed 12-15. This is my last painting of 2014-I think! It's sort of a self portrait if you will, although all paintings are if you think about it. It's 16x20 painted on gallery wrapped stretched canvas with painted sides. Thank you for viewing my work. Happy holidays.

C L E A N I N G O U T T H E S T U D I O S A L E

It's that time of year again.  I have reduced the remaining pieces in my "Cleaning Out The Studio sale." I am posting one more new painting before the Christmas break.  I am pretty excited about it, something a bit different and more expressive.  I am hoping to finish it today but I've been so busy with prints and note card orders I may not have the chance.  I am looking forward to the break with my son and rest of my family.  2015 is filled with new and interesting projects and  I am grateful and ready!

Comfort and Joy~New painting

Comfort and Joy was completed on 12-9. I decided to do a subtle holiday painting with some familiar characters. Mr. Cardinal knows that Theo the kitty is asleep under the table so he's keeping a safe distance. I love black top hats! It's painted on stretched canvas with painted sides. I hope you are enjoying the season.
