|"Gather No Moss" , mixed media, 12 x 12" copyright 2017 www.kathipeters.com|
Always moving it seems. Seldom still. A horse grazes, covering ground in search of food.....and rolls to rid it's self of burdens and bugs.
A scene that is often seen on our farm ....and on farms and plains all across our land.
Like a rolling stone......gather no moss.
This is another in my foray into abstraction work. I will continue to explore my abstraction and representational mix. I hope you like it!
I will paint
"Gather No Moss" is available , and ready to ship to your home.

"Cavallo Nel Campo", oil ,12 x 12" www.kathipeters.com
Summer comes and goes too quickly it seems. It feels like only yesterday that we were planting seeds and waiting for them to sprout. Now we spend days mowing grass that grows too fast and trying, in vain, to keep up with the gardens and farm work. Days spent carriage driving at Acadia are few and far between . But I am getting into the studio and am painting and drawing as time allows. I have so many photos to pour over for future painting......as I actually look forward to slower days with the coming of fall.

|"By Summer'sEnd" , mixed media, 18 x 18" copyright 2017|
There have been so many horses that have come into our life over the years. Some we bought. Some we were given and some were born into our arms. With horse ownership and the love of the horse, comes a lot of responsibilities. I think that when we accept the horse into our life we owe them a promise of security and care for the rest of their life. In this painting I was thinking about that responsibility and hopefully I have captured it metaphorically. The end of summer....a season , a era ending.

In the winter , while on a walk with my JRT Nell, we came upon this robin's nest that lay on the cold snow. One blue egg, left behind for some unknown reason, lie still in the nest, unbroken. I carefully carried it and its nest back to my studio. I love doing paintings of different nests, and I loved how this nest had the terre vert colored moss woven into its beautiful structure. I will always wonder why this egg never hatched and why the nest fell where Nell and I saw it...as if it was meant to be.
