Passion and Serenity

There's been a lot happening in my world the past week - and its going to get a little more hectic. Baby Boy Harrington, third grandson, is set to arrive in the next few days and I am the Grandma on call. So a calm, serene painting is called for. This ACEO of a path along the river is pretty mellow/yellow calm spring green.
And I was so happy to receive this lovely"Passion for Painting" award from Ann Gorbett. I need to write 7 things that I love and then pass the award onto 7 other artists. Watch this space!

The brushwork is exciting on this one. Almost a van gogh moment with the sky and the twist of the tree tops. Nice!
Congrats on your achievement!

Delightful little piece, Kathleen! Best to you for the coming grandson!

Ann Gorbett said...

Hi Kathleen: I can't wait to see your list.
I just realized you live near where I grew up-Chagrin Falls (actually Bainbridge). I knew I felt a connection!

Kathleen said...

Thanks Brian. I liked the way the sky turned out... and gals, can't wait for the baby! it may be tomorrow!
Ann - I was in Chagrin Falls last week. Still beautiful. There's been a lot of building in the Bainbridge/Aurora area.
I'm in a show in Reminderville this month!
