Winter Marsh

Acrylic and mixed media on cradled birch panel, 10x10,

This is the second in my "mica" series. It is hard to see the mica in the photograph but it's there on the ice flows. It creates an interesting effect. The 1" sides of the panels are painted black. The painting is ready to hang or it can be framed. More information on the acrylic portfolio page of the blog. Or you can email me.

First Painting of 2010

Pemaquid Wave #1, acrylic and mixed media, 10x10 cradled birch panel

Finally, I have completed my first painting of the year. This took quite a while to finish as I was working with several new products including some new Golden mediums. I love working with mixed media but I haven't done anything like this for quite awhile. More information about this painting on the acrylic page. There is a link on the righthand side bar. Or you can email me.

Happy New Year. Recently a number of people have asked me where they can see my paintings during the winter months when the summer galleries that show my work are closed. Here's the answer. For the next couple of months several pieces will be shown at the new Maine Studio gallery at 235 Presumpscott St in Portland. I also have about a dozen paintings available year round at the Nationwide Insurance Offices at 949 Brighton Ave also in Portland. Work at both locations is available for sale. And of course you can view my entire portfolio online at They also handle print and card sales. There is a link over on the righthand side bar for that website. Any questions - drop me an email.

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.
