Commission piece

One of my clients commissioned me to create  this piece for her dear friend.  I just completed it today. 
She shared many interesting things about her friend's fascinating life that I enjoyed interpreting.

Be the first to the field and the last to the couch. Chinese proverb

I plan on doing another chinoiserie style piece in the weeks to come.  This is a painting I did in October of last year. However, since it's the weekend, I wish the opposite of this quote! Catherine

Commission piece

I have been doing quite a bit of commission work lately.  This is a custom piece I did for a client in Michigan.   She was super nice to work with.  This painting was 24x36 and included many special reference's to the family. This photo wasn't taken in the best lighting.    I will be posting my latest commission in a few more days.  Thanks for stopping by.  Catherine

After OZ-New original painting

Did you ever wonder what became of Dorothy after OZ? Here's a glimpse. She decided to stay in Kansas but relocated and definitely upgraded. Toto approves peaking out from the curtain.   I never noticed  the red heart clock that Tin Man received had a little flower chain attached.  I think I will plant some red poppies this spring for sure.  This painting is 14x11 painted on stretched canvas.  For sale in my etsy shop and website.

Sneak Peak-After OZ

Almost done with my new painting.    I thought of the name long before I began painting it.  The idea  came to me when I saw this  amazing deco couch.  It reminded me of something from the Wizard Of Oz . Here 's Dorothy's interior.   I should be posting the completed piece by Tuesday.

Leo and The Baroness-Original painting by Catherine Nolin

This is my new painting. My valentines painting a day late.   I remember a time that I didn't like the combination of red and pink but I am loving it these days.  Love a  red lacquer chest  as well.  Leo seems to find his way into my paintings here and there.  He's just so darn cute.  This painting is for sale in my etsy shop.
