Snag your very own archival print of Distant Light!

 

Sadly, this painting, while in transit to her new owner, was badly damaged by the USPS.

Despite proper packaging and careful handling on each end, someone along the USPS journey felt the need to puncture the box containing Distant Light. They have refused to fix their negligence.

Despite her scar, Distant Light is thoroughly loved by her new owner <3

Have a great weekend,

Love & Sincerely, Katie

    thanks Monica!
    Dear Neeivkeera ~ it’s funny ~ I had a wild hair that day to grab my tube of blue paint and just go to town. I do usually start with brown and white (I actually do not own black paint and have never used it) ~ the blue was nice, and you’ll see I left bits of it showing through in the finished piece. I think the bright undercoating is inspirational ~ but I am quite fond of adding color after I have my composition finessed in brown and white. It is a personal preference thing, and many artists use the bright base color to a great advantage! Thanks!
    Sincerely, Katie

    First off, another lovely piece! Sad USPS…

    I’m fascinated at the process and would be curious to know(when you have the time) if there is a difference between blues being your base color, as in this one, vs. the brown/black shade of the one in your recent video? I’ve never taking a painting class in my life, so clearly have no idea of the layering process =)

  3. How terribly upsetting that she was damaged. :( I am glad that her owner still loves her. I would as well. Simply stunning!
