Is it Spring??

I had a great day today. Plein air painting with my friends from Boothbay Harbor. Here's my friend Corinne painting in Grimes Cove. It's so incredibly beautiful there. It was a balmy 45 degrees. Who knew you could paint out in Maine in February? Hopefully a few paintings of Grimes Cove will get posted over the weekend.

Moonlight Sonata

Paper Pulp and Mixed Media, 18x24, $1,200 framed, from the Midsummer Night's Dream series

Yesterday I took all 5 of the paintings down to Portsmouth, NH for the show at 100 Market St.
and I've posted all of them on a new blog page - Paper Pulp Paintings. There is a link to that page just above. There you can read about the paper pulp process and see how the work is framed. My computer screen is showing a blue cast to this painting. It may be the screen or the fact that they were photographed under the glazing, which is acrylic. You should know that this background is OFF WHITE. For more information on the show itself click on the events page link above.

Starry Starry Night

Paper Pulp and Mixed Media, 16x20, framed $900.00

Here's the first of the 5 paintings going to the show in Portsmouth. These pieces are very different from my pastel work in some ways but not in others. I think they have the same mysterious quality. This is from my Midsummer Night's Dream series. The lighting at the bottom is a little dark - I had to photograph these already framed, the frame is very deep and so the shadow effect in the photo. Shipping is not included in these prices but the handsome frame is. If you're in the NH area in the next couple of months you can see these paintings at 100 Market St in Portsmouth. For more information email me.

New Show Feb 13 - April 19

I've just had 5 of my paper pulp paintings accepted into the Fiber/Textile Show at the Gallery at 100 Market St. in Portsmouth, NH. This will be the first time that all 5 have been shown together. The setting is fabulous so I hope you'll be able to stop by. See the events page for more details. I'll be photographing the paintings this weekend and will post them for everyone to see.

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:

I also have a brick and mortar gallery/studio in Nashua, N.H. in the Picker Building. Please email me for more information.
