This piece is framed in an elegant 1.5" deep, 2" wide dark wood molding with an inner beading of silver; the archival mat is white. UV protective glass.
This artwork was painted in one quick studio sitting from a photo taken in Michigan. I especially loved the vibrant colors of the woods, perfect for the wet-in-wet watercolor technique. Those who think of watercolor paintings as pale and shy are simply looking at the wrong artist. I am happiest when throwing down bright, transparent layers of watercolor, which reflect the light of the white substrate like a small fire. Also, those who say watercolors are so difficult because you cannot make changes, have not painted with Kathleen. An essential tool in my studio is my water spray bottle. Watercolors are not for the faint-of-heart. One must stand with conviction as you spray off your last layer of paint or perhaps several layers, let it dry, then start again. In a pinch, I am known to place the entire piece flat in the sink and scrub it off with a bristle brush. When it dries, you have a soft ghostly underpainting upon which to work. Watercolors take courage and patience, it's true. But I am convinced anyone can do it.
