Lover's Eye~New painting by Catherine Nolin

I continue to be drawn to a sort of Renaissance type style.  I suppose maybe because of the rich colors, the drama  and spirituality aspect.  In my painting the woman is holding a lover's eye locket.  They were popular fashion statements in the late 18th century.  This painting is 14x11 painted on a cradled birch wood panel.  The sides have been painted to match. This painting is available here
Thanks for looking

What's on my easel.

I have had so many requests on Etsy for more botanical paintings.  Here is one that I should be finished with tomorrow.  A variation on "Birds In Paradise"

Eleanor's Paradise-New Painting

I am very excited that I've finished this painting before my Thanksgiving break. 
Since I love painting rooms and I love painting animals I decided to put them together in this large 18x24  piece.  I actually do have a niece named Eleanor and she does look quite a bit like the young woman on the couch but that was purely accidental or subconscious I should say.  Thanks for stopping and and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Curious Manor -New Original painting by Catherine Nolin

Yesterday I completed this piece.  It was one of those paintings that just came together without having a main idea or theme.  Sometimes those are the best kind.  It's painted on a 16x20 cradled birch wood panel.  Thanks for looking.
