New Place

A Small Look at the Great Marsh -SOLD-6 x 6" oil on linen
© 2009 Katherine Kean


I'm prepping work and updating my portfolio this week. Saturday is TAG's official opening day at the new location and I'll have one small piece as part of a group exhibit that opens December 5th and runs through December 26th.

I went by on Tuesday - which was move in day. The movers happened to have an irresistably adorable little puppy with them that someone had given one of them that morning while they were on the way to our location. Luckily someone had some spare dog supplies in her car and a box with a blanket was prepared. The puppy slept through the morning in her box, but later when she woke up I ran out and got some puppy food. Feeding her and taking her for a little walk was a fun distraction from moving.

When I left the painters were already making good progress even as furniture and office supplies were being moved in. It looks like everything will be all set for the opening on Saturday.

I reviewed your work my favorites that you have here on your blog
are by date:

8-12-2009
9-9-2009
8-14-2009

The 8-12-2009 painting really had me looking at it from a variety of different directions. The balance of the work was perfect for me and I really like the edges of the mountain and the colors were very different from what I would usually like. It is one of the types of paintings that is hard to get all the whys it works for me because I look at so many paintings.... but it just has a super professional look to me.

Excellent works overall and I like your blog very much.

Best regards,
Tom Bailey

Congratulations on the move and the best wishes for a successful opening this weekend. The puppy sounds like a welcomed distraction during a day that was probably high energy and high tension.!

Absolutely love this painting. The purple tones surprised and delighted me in a way that really spoke to me.

Best wishes for the opening this weekend!

Thanks everyone!

Tom - thanks for your thoughtful feedback. I'm glad that you found some paintings that appeal to you. Many of those that you see here are works in progress and may change and change again before completion. I often don't always understand all the whys of what I like either!

Kathryn - it's be delightful to see you if you can make it!

Thanks Palmer and Marianne. Suzanne - I'm glad you liked the purples - I like them too.
