“Blues” Watercolor on Terraskin paper (by Katie Turner) on display at Natur-Tyme, DeWitt, New York.

For those who are local (Central New York Area) please join me tomorrow evening (Thursday, February 25th, 2016) from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. for an Artist Reception.  The painting above is one of several that will be displayed and all art will be 10% off tomorrow only.  There are many pieces priced under $100 and some matted (unframed) originals for much less.  All of my art is original (no prints).  In addition to myself, three other artists will also be displayed – Maria Rizzo (the Artist-in-Residence), Blane Berry and Annie Taylor.  Light refreshments will be served.  Hope to see you there.

Winter As Inspiration

9 Feb Watercolor painting of dead foliage by Katie Turner

Even though this stem was dead, it was very interesting to me.  I really enjoyed the shape, how it looks, wind blown and then having died in that position.  I’m always looking for different things to inspire my paintings.  I’m looking for things that come from strange places sometimes, or even somewhat normal places. People are inspired by all kinds of things; music, places, paintings.  I’d like to know what inspires others.
