Gold Fog

Pastel on Wallis, 5x5, matted to 11x14, $95.00

It was pretty foggy Monday at the Marsh when I painted this. The fog kept moving in and out. This image is 5x5 and is matted in a standard size mat so it is easy to get a frame for it. Shipping within the US is included.

Marsh Mist

Pastel on Wallis, 5x5, $95.00

Here's the first painting from my trip to Scarborough Marsh on Monday. It was a very foggy morning and the fog came and went throughout the day. Here the fog was midway across the marsh. This image is 5x5 and is matted to a standard size mat 11x14 so you can easily find a frame for it. The price includes shipping within the U.S. If you like it email me.

Good News

Midsummer Night's Dream - Moon Rising, paper pulp and mixed media, $1000

I got some really good news today. I entered two of my paper pulp (and mixed media) pieces in the Barn Gallery Regional Artists open juried show in Ogunquit and both were accepted. This juried show was established in the days of the Ogunquit Art Colony by some of the very best 20th Century American painters and according to the gallery it is still "the most prestigious juried exhibition in the seacoast area." I'm honored to have my work included in a show at a gallery that has made such an important contribution to the history of American Art. Moon Rising is one of the two pieces accepted. Sorry about the flash in the photo. I forgot to turn the flash off on the camera.

Other good news. Yesterday was a fantastic painting day at the marsh and I'll be posting some of those paintings in the next few days.

Deep Woods

Pastel on Wallis, 9 x 12, $375.00

WOW. It's been almost a month since I posted anything. I've been traveling along the east coast with my husband on his book tour. Now we will be doing events closer to home so I'll be able to do more posting.

I did get this painting framed. It's very impressionistic. I painted it one lovely summer afternoon last year when I was painting with the Pastel Painters of Maine at the home of one of our members in Whitefield Maine. The woods were spectacular and I wanted to capture the light as it came through the trees. The image is 9 x 12 and the framed size is 15 x 18. The frame is the gold plein air that I almost always use. The price includes shipping within the U.S.

Welcome to the home page of my blog. This is where I post new work as well as updates on my artistic life.

You will find a complete portfolio of my work on my website: Kathleen Daughan Fine Art where paintings can also be purchased. Smaller paintings and jewelry are in my Etsy shop:
