What I'm working on

 I am working on a 16x20 piece in which the title came into my head before I even began.  I love when that happens! (Not ready to show a sneak peak yet)  "The Poet's Dream"  I then realized that it comes from a line in the song American Pie by Don Mclean.  "The lovers cried and the poets dreamed." I still love that song although I haven't  heard it in a while.
I  have  one original available for sale ready to ship.  "Letting Go"  www.catherinenolin.org  This painting would look wonderful in a children's room as well as a dining room space. It's 18x24 with painted sides.  Shipping is free on Etsy as well.  www.catherine47.etsy.com

The Baffled Queen~ New painting

Completed on 11-30.  The Baffled Queen as opposed to the Baffled King.  I have loved that song ever since I heard it for the first time in the 90's performed  by Rufus Wainwright.  It had a calming affect on Sam and become our anthem of sorts over the years.  Sad that Leonard Cohen has left us.  
Anyway, I have painted many queens over the years but this one has the look and qualities  I've been striving for.  The photo doesn't capture all the detail so I've included a close up.  This piece is 16x12 created  on  cradled basswood  with painted sides. ALSO, I am about to finish the dove I started as well so stay tuned!

The Moon Will See You Now~New painting

Completed on 11-19.  I used the backdrop from " Scenes from the Life of the Virgin" panel located Siena Italy.  I enjoy blending objects and scenes to create my own world.  This painting is 16x12 created on a cradled wood panel with painted sides. I never got to see the Super Moon last week it was hiding behind clouds I guess.   I  wish you all a wonderful peaceful Thanksgiving.

Selfish Daughter- New Painting

Completed on 10-31- The name for this painting came from a song I was listening when I started.   The song  just struck a chord with me.  Sometimes songs, poetic lyrics are so perfect. I am quite excited about this painting.  I feels  luminous,  magical and moody.   16x12 on a cradled birch wood panel with painted sides.  TO view on my website click the link- www.catherinenolin.org 
BTW~  Happy Halloween!
