Today I am posting a painting that is representative
of the way I used to work. I have painted many,
many of these atmospheric textural pieces. I am
amazed to say that I have very few of them remaining.
I have been very fortunate in my sales of them. I
reached a place where I had to do something different.

Katherine, thank you for your generosity in featuring my work yesterday - it was indeed a wonderful experience - and oo la la, this painting - I can see why you have few of them left....

60" x 36" must make this beauty command the room's attention! Wow!

Katherine said...

Jeane it was truly my pleasure. Thank you for the support on my painting.

Mary Ann I am glad you made that comment as I was able to see my typo...oops! The painting is 5 feet by 4 feet. And yes it does have a commanding presence. I have a collector in Colorado who actually owns two of this series. He has one on either side of his fireplace. Wild!

Gorgeous! Lucky collector having two pieces.
Every time I visit your blog that header just makes my day.

Katherine said...

Why thank you Robyn. I spent a long time on your blog today. It is so fantastic.

Katherine, as you know, I love the Covenant series and have from the minute I saw the first one in the window at Art Media in Portland. It was a great series, and I'm glad you did it, and glad that you moved on from it to new things when you felt it was time. I love the work you are doing now just as much as the Covenant series, just in a different way. That series reminded me in a certain sense of Adolph Gottlieb's "Burst" series, in that it was a repeated motif that was elemental and mysterious, presented in a "theme and variations" kind of way. Cheers, Richard

Katherine!

This style is noticeably different than the abstracts I normally see from you and yet I still see "you" in this painting. Does that make sense?

Thanks for showing us your range as an artist. It's interesting to hear and see how you develop over time.

Richard thank you! I needed to hear this supportive statement of my new work and no better person to get it from than you. I will have to check out the Burst series.

Thank you Dean and thank you for you continued comments.
