This watercolor was created as a study for the Red Torch Ginger that appears in the Tropical Spirit Mural I am working on.
Would you like to come paint Hawaiian flora and fauna with me? I am going to be teaching on the Big Island. Join the email list for more information as it arrives and come paint with me.
This is a gallery wrapped canvas which means it doesn’t need a frame, it is ready to hang right up. Black and white acrylic paint create the strength of this painting, and a small touch of silver create the stars, which are small and don’t appear in the photos. This was a commission painting that is now hanging in its new home.
Before it was even finished someone else wanted to purchase it! I told her I could paint a similar painting, and we could put her face and favorite landscape in the painting instead. Something like that would go for $1300, if we are looking at a similar size (36×48″).
My friend Ashley and I have been working hard on creating beautiful language learning materials for Diamond Montessori and are delighted to announce they are now available.
I’m very pleased with everything I’ve illustrated and Ashley’s writing is perfect for kids, and it’s all to Montessori specifications- beautiful, clear, and straightforward, to inspire little ones to grow and learn.
When we first moved up to Washington a few years ago, I did these paintings. I was talking about them and couldn’t find them on my website anywhere so I’m sharing them today. These ones sold right away when I shared them on https://m.facebook.com/artistkatana
So this painting started off by painting the canvas grey. Because there were so many small shapes here I wanted to cover the canvas with a flattish color.
It just arrived at its home!
This is the second Monet painting in a series that I’m creating to teach at my Paint Nite events. This new one is called “Impressionist Monet Bridge Over Lilies.” You can search the title + ‘Paint Nite’ to find out if it’s being taught in your area.
See the first one, “Impressionist Monet Water Lilies” here.
Beginning this year, Mary Malinski, the Prosperity Priestess at Walks Within, and I, have been working on our deck of Tarot Cards. Every Thursday we are releasing a new Tarot card. If you’d like a chance to model for a tarot card (the more variety of persons the better the deck will be!) than send a few poses and faces to us. It’s helpful if you are posed as the figures on the card may be, but I can amalgamate images as well. Costuming is not necessary.
The idea is to fill the cards with art, love and light, and they are all digitally illustrated to create a clear story to help you read the cards accurately.
I created this version of Claude Monet’s Water Lilies to teach at Paint Nite. It’s called “Impressionist Monet Water Lilies.” Click here to find it on the Paint Nite schedule near you.
I’m providing the steps for other Paint Nite master artists to teach their own version, or for you to have a sneak preview of how easy it is to follow along at Paint Nite.
