Finished paintings from the Jasper workshop week

Once a year or so I like to continue my own education with an indepth workshop with someone I consider a modern master. When choosing the workshop, of course the mentor must also suite my own work. That doesn’t mean that have to paint in the same style as me but they must have knowledge I can absorb and that will help me in my own art journey. When searching for a workshop mentor I look for someone contemporary and colorful and most importantly, who’s work grasps my attention, freezes me in my tracks and inspires me. My three favorite workshop teachers are Caroline Jasper, Linda Kemp and Robert Burridge, each who challenge me and inspire me, and I feel not just inspiration but a jump in my work immediately following the classes.Image

I love sharing photos of my artwork in its new home, or with its owner. I feel strongly that every piece I paint is made for a specific person, even if I haven’t met them yet or have no idea who its painting for when I paint it. If you have bought a work from me I would love to share a photo of it either with you or hanging in its home on my blog. Please send them to katinkabelle@gmail.com.

Sketches

Sketching isn’t something I love doing, but I know its very good practice.  I love the flow and spread of paint, and really I hate the drag of pencil across paper.  If I am going to sketch I prefer charcoal, but I don’t like it all over my hands.  I have found a nice solution in charcoal pencils.  Sticks of charcoal nicely wrapped up in wood.  Here are a few of the new friends I have created this week.  Three girls each with a different feel.

This one was inspired by my daughter, Z, who always seemed a bit like Wednesday Adams.

Double Trouble

ImageI finished this painting last week in Arizona, while hanging out with my evil twin Haley.  At first they seemed rather naked so I put them in a bubble bath to remove any questions.  We girls do love getting into a little hot water, especially if bubbles are involved. The colors are inspired by cotton candy, because what is more fun than that?  Double Trouble is watercolor on Aquaboard and 18″x24″.  Double Trouble is $260 unframed and $300 framed.

Ariel- I painted Ariel a couple years back and she is finally going to her new home. Sometimes the girls feel like orphans waiting for the right person to take them home and love them.
