Floral Blessing~new original painting

This is my latest painting.  I enjoy creating rather abstract botanicals every now and then.  I'm  definetly influneced by my two sons as well esepcially since one has moved home ( temporatily?)  and the other vists from Boston almost every weekend.  Since I've been going through a rather rough patch lately I decided to create some healing engery of my own.  This piece is 16x20 executed with acrylics on stretched canvas.  The sides have been painted so no frame is needed.  IT's wired and ready to hang.  Thanks for looking.

Giveaway on Facebook

I've been feeling a little sorry for myself this week,  between a botched root canal and then twisting my knee getting up from a chair.  What the heck is happening to my body when a simple maneuver can result in such pain.  I must be turning 50 this year!

I am having a pretty nice Giveaway on Facebook.  If you haven't already liked my" Fan Page"!/catherinenolinart   This is not my regular Facebook but my fan page.  I am trying to keep my Facebook page for more personal, family oriented news and my fan page strictly for promoting my art.  I am giving away an 8x10 matted and framed fine art print. Check it out when you have a chance. 
By the way, after next week, I wont be posting any new work for a bit. My son Sam will be home for his summer vacation and it's all hands on deck.  Catherine

Paris Apartment~New original Painting

I wasn't sure I was actually going to finish this piece today since I was stuck in traffic all morning and then came home and began cleaning my house instead of painting .  This is somethings that happens quite frequently although my house never looks clean or organized these days. 
This painting is 11x14 executed with acrylics on stretched canvas.  The sides are painted so no frame is needed and it's wired and ready to hang but I think this one needs a pretty frame!  Thanks for looking.

Cleaning Out the studio sale!

A few times each year I have a sale on some of my older paintings.  You can see them all posted on Etsy  under the category SALE!  It's a great opportunity to purchase an original work of art!  Most of them are already beautifully framed too!

Restoration Gray-new original painting

Today as I sat at my easel finishing up this piece today,  I couldn't help but smile.  Yesterday I was at Mass General Hospital in Boston taking my son Sam for a rather uncomfortable G.I. procedure.  It was very chaotic and  stressful but very necessary.   Here I am today lost in color and the peaceful atmopshere of my studio,  listening to George Winston and Leo purring on top of a pile of old magazines.  I love my job! 
This is my newest painting.  It's 11x14 painted with acrylics on stretched canvas.  Thanks for looking.

Here's hoping all the days ahead, won't be as bitter as the one's behind you. Be an optimist instead, and somehow happiness will find you. - The Kinks, Better Things

 My husband is always reminding me about the law of attraction.    Positive thoughts attracting good things and negative thoughts attracting negativity in your life.  I always feel irritated when he says that since it's usually at a point in which  I am way down that dark road and don't want to hear it!   However, I must admit he might be onto something!
Here's to hoping you have a positive day~oh wait no that's wrong...You are going to have a positive day.

Gabriella's Table (gets a makeover)

You may remember this painting looking a bit different a few months back.  Occasionally I end up reworking a painting and this just happens to be one of them.  I am much happier with this version.  I consider it a "make- over."  The dimensions are 18x24 painted on stretched canvas.  Thanks for looking.
