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

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!

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.

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
