We are so held up by our fears, concerns and personal challenges that sometimes we forget to fly. Sometimes we can fly, but we need some space for take off. Sometimes we can fly, but the water of our life is holding us back. Maybe we've gotten in too deep. Life is that water that feeds us, and yet also drags us back sometimes. If we gaze upward and don't lose sight of what we can be, then we will ascend. Ascension 8x10 oil on canvas
I'm actually humming "O Holy Night" under my breath, but the title is Abandoned Road. It's night, a hint of moonlight, the trees are starting to go to sleep for their winter rest. The track glows with the light of the moon. This painting is ready to be framed. Abandoned Road 8x10" oil on linen
The most difficult part of painting outside on a beautiful autumn morning is keeping to the flow of traffic on the way home. Haha! You can see the spiral of the notebook. I'm enjoying the anticipation of rising on Monday mornings! watercolor on 100% cotton paper Interested parties may contact me here:Kittie@KDeemer.com
Today I painted outside with a fellow artist, Anne Elizabeth Howard. It was a gorgeous day (except for the ant bites that Anne got on her feet and ankles). A slight overcast soon gave way to sparkling sunshine and cool breezes. The geese are starting to move, and the occasional honking brought on a sense of nostalgia for me from my younger years living in Utah. "Winter is coming! Winter is coming!", they seem to say as they fly overhead Here are a couple images of Anne and her started field painting.
Sometimes making art isn't difficult. The painting arrives unbidden, and quietly places itself upon the canvas. Oh sure, there's the little nit-bits that require tweaking and twiddling, but for the most part, the portrait sings itself into being. This painting was like that. It started as an abstracted landscape. Didn't like that, so what kind of living creature might I find here? And there he is. I've titled this Mustang Dreams, because I think they do dream. They dream of no mountain lions, no freezing rain and snow, and they dream of fresh, sweet hay.
