Cold on the River - SOLD

"Cold on the River, Port Alberni", 11 x 14 In, Oil on Museum Board
Because of some ongoing issues, I have not been painting at the rate and intensity that I have for so many years. So I thought that rather than not posting at all, I would post some older work. This is a painting of a a town in British Columbia. It was sold years ago at a show on the East Coast where it won a prize.

I want to thank everyone who has followed my blog over the last three years. I have found both friendship and support from you! I wish you all the best for the New Year and that we will all continue to find our way as artists--wherever our paths lead.

Thank you!
Kathryn

  2. I didn't know your work a few years ago but this one is a beauty and it has a great abstract feel to it. YOU are such a good artist it is always a pleasure to see your work so I am pleased you are going to show your older pieces while your "issues" are being resolved. Just hoping your health is good.
    Wishing you a wonderful and creatively satisfying New year,
