Custom Pet Portraits Preserve Precious Memories

 I have been doing pet portraits for about 30 years.  Like most things, it started with my pets.  Then when family members saw what I had done, they wanted portraits of their pets.  My Dad’s cats.  My sister’s dog.  And it spread from there.  I’ve lost count of how many I have done, but I […]

New Ideas for Gift Giving

 Yes, I know.  I’m not the most prolific poster.  While I’ve said it before, I am trying to be more diligent on that score.  For this holiday coming, I’ve set up a page of smaller, less expensive works that fit well in the gift giving genre.  In addition, I’m working on more!  One of my […]

Believe it or not, I’m still here!

 This is Katherine (yes, really!) with some updates. I know it has been a looooong time since I’ve written, and I hope you are still interested in me and my art! I’ve been busy with new pieces, work on the house and yard, and getting ready for winter. It’s been a lot of work, but […]

At a Crossroads

 Standing at a crossroads.  It’s not unlike writers block except that I’m hoping I can ask you to help me decide which path to take.  My goal is to take my work forward, kick it up a notch or ten, reach higher, so to speak.  My challenge is that I am not sure which road […]

Tech Savy and Art: An awkward combination?

 So, after a year or so, okay, emphasis on the “so”, I moved my old blogspot blog to this site, en toto.  I did the first steps all by my not so big self, though it did require an hour and some minor cursing from my tech guru husband.  At any rate, it’s done! Wahoos […]

A New Year, A New Start

 Wow, so much happened in 2012, and it whizzed by.  Clearly I was so wrapped up in all of it, I stopped posting by the end of January and poured all my energy in trying to preserve the Angel Fire ArtSpace Gallery.  If you follow me otherwise, you already know that by July, the handwriting […]

Pondering the "Markers" in My Life

 I’m not entirely sure why, but I have found myself pondering some of the more memorable “markers” in my life, that led to some kind of change. While there were some big ones that occurred in my late teens and early twenties, it is the more recent experiences that have been running through my mind, […]

Perspectives

 So, I thought, “I’ll try to post every Sunday”  Also thinking “or most Sundays”. So, it is Sunday, and I saw something today that struck my attention.  First, some background.  I’ve seen recently, on TV a commercial (Volkswagon, it think), that starts with a  boy looking at a bicycle and saying, “is it fast?” and […]

A New Year..A new effort to Post!

 The New Year crept in and before I blinked here it is the start of the second week!  Wowzers! Although I hear lots of naysayers regarding the coming of 2012, I find myself focused like a laser beam on growth.  Growth for the Gallery, growth for me on every level: Mind, Body, Spirit, Relationships and […]
