I’m practically a hermit…all I want to do is paint! Here’s a recent piece. Kathe Fraga is a Northwest artist who’s sweet, warm paintings I love. They remind me of Asian kimonos, french soaps, and vintage wallpapers. As I am trying many styles this year, I painted this piece, ala Kathe Fraga. Starting with 3 panels, juicy pinks & reds, and some nice gray to tone it down:
I can’t tell from her online paintings if she used stencils or hand paints, Asian style her detailed blossoms. Her paintings feel like blankets and pillows that I want to grab a cup of lemon grass tea and curl up in.
I was listening to this extremely cool French singer ZAZ in the streets of Paris, while I painted.
