Two pieces, further along…Seascape and Woodland Visitors

So this big, mystery piece-turned Landscape or Seascape is pretty near done but waiting for that final decision.

And then this 40″ x 40″- square piece is slowly shifting through “stuck” place where it has been for so long. Slow moving in the studio these summer days. I think that’s why I pull out the watercolor postcards and just play, letting these bigger pieces percolate.

A Chicken mailing coming soon!

Since I haven’t sent out a card mailing this year and did not have any spring open studio events here at Not Now, Kato! fine art studio, I thought it was time to reach out. I will be sending out these lovely red chicken cards soon! On the back you’ll find a list of all the places you can find my work. I thought I should put it all together in one location (other than my website where not everyone goes). These beautiful cards are designed (once again) by Mitchell Graphics–shout OUT to them for great work and great service. Thanks, team!

UGH! and I see now I have left off Hillsborough Arts Council Gift Shop! My apologies. Years ago, I did a “where to find my work” card and swore then ‘never again,’ because of just this kind of thing–a miss or a change in venues. ARGH!

Little watercolor postcards lately

Lately I have been making myself happy with painting watercolor postcards. (Great affordable ones at Happy Mess in Durham, btw!)

I paint them (photo them) and mail them.

My Work in People’s Houses–a great collection

What a thrill it is to see my work well loved and well situated in someone’s home! This client has been collecting my work for years. Here are a few that live in her bright spaces. The rooms hold the work and the work holds the space. Love my job!
