Water's Edge 3

Pastel on textured surface, 6x6 image, 11x11 framed

This piece was painted in Olde Mystic, Connecticut. I don't get to paint out of state very often but I had a chance to paint at this wonderful marsh in April. More information on this painting on the landscape portfolio page.

Gilsland Cove

Pastel on textured surface, 5x5, matted to 11x14

I started this almost a year ago and finished it up a week or so ago but never got around to posting it. It's now at the Boothbay Region Gallery and you can see it there. It was painted at the Gilsland Farm Audubon Sanctuary in Falmouth, Maine. It has a magenta underpainting so it has a little different look than some of my work. More information about the piece is on the Five By Five portfolio page.

Rocky Coast

Pastel on textured surface, 6x6 image, 11x11 framed

Here's the second of the Pemaquid series. This one is a small one and is framed. I think it captures the feel of the rocks at that location. There's more information about this painting on the Pemaquid portfolio page.

Pemaquid IV

Pastel on textured board, 6x12 image, framed to 12x18

Finally, a painting from the Pemaquid trip. It needed a little tweak, but here it is. This is actually a studio painting, it was raining on the first day of the retreat and we had to paint in the studio.
There is more information about this painting on the portfolio page for Pemaquid Paintings.

Plein Air at Pemaquid

I just spent the best weekend at the Pastel Painters of Maine annual Pemaquid retreat. 21 of us gathered for 3 days of painting, demonstrations, critique and generally a good time. And a good time we had inspite of some weather challenges on Friday. We managed to create a lot of good paintings and made many new friends. As the organizer of the event I want to thank all of the participants for their many contributions to the success of the weekend. You were a great group.

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: www.kathleendaughan.etsy.com

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