The Queen is in her counting house.

Across the street from my house is a soccer field. There is a short woodsy path that leads to  the field.   That's where I take Abbey, our aging yellow lab every morning.   I love walking down the little path which opens to such a beautiful big sky.  It a daily reminder that there is something more to this life.
 This is one of the pieces I am   
  getting ready to ship off   to TLNorris gallery in Greenville, South Carolina.

Cabinet Of Curiosities ~New Original Painting~Catherine Nolin

Happy Thursday.  My new painting. Over the years I have really fallen in love with anything Chinoiserie.  
Chinoiserie, a French term, signifying "Chinese-esque", and pronounced [ʃinwazʁi]) refers to a recurring theme in European artistic styles since the seventeenth century, which reflect Chinese artistic influences.
The painting is 14x11 painted on a birch wood cradled panel.  The sides have been also painted to match so no frame is needed.  Thanks for stopping by.  For sale o my website

In The Studio..........

This is what I've been working on.  I hope to have it completed by tomorrow.  It's painted on a cradled birch wood panel.  I think I've mentioned this before but I love painting on this surface. 
What do you think?  What should I title this one?

I Love You~new original painting

I had the idea to create a small painting about "Love." I love themes if you haven't guessed.    Although this would have been a great painting for Valentine's Day, any day is a day for Love.  Leo, the Italian cat, (as we refer to him)  made an appearance.  This is a sweet little piece 8x10 surely to bring LOVE to anyone who........................

What I'm working on in the studio............

This is a new piece I started rather late yesterday.  It's a small painting 8x10 but I am so looking forward to getting back to it however,  that might not be until Monday afternoon!  If I could, I would paint day and night but I do have  to consider my family and my house, which by Friday is pretty scary looking.(my family is also scary looking by Friday) 
 I have a neighbor who talks about going away to do her writing at various art colonies and how she gets  so much accomplished.  I would absolutely love to do that as well but not at this time in my life.
