Progress on Oil Painting On Copper

Oil painting on copper mounted on birch board  22 x 22" @ kathi peters 2010

I have been working on this oil....and am loving the feel of the paint as it slides onto the copper, along with working on a painting of this size. It means standing up and that makes it possible for me to move around more.I  look at the painting ,step back and look at the work. What a novel idea!! ;-)

We have been having a bit of rain lately. This is a good thing as things were starting to get a bit dry.But the rain also cut the season short for my poppies. I do love the short spurt of bright red in my garden..and the fact that I can enjoy it all just outside my studio door! Now the roses are starting. When they open in flower not only will I have eye candy, in red and pink.... but the air is perfumed by the roses as well!! Now I know why I moved the studio down stairs!!


AND....An exciting side note: I am featured in the June issue [#56]  of American Art Collector magazine.There is a great article, written by John O'Hara, titled " The Art Of The Horse", and my work is featured along with 14 other equine artists. I am happy to be in such great company. If you get a chance , take a look see of the caliper of artists and read the article.

Now back to the studio. September and the art show at Gallery B in Lexington, KY is coming up fast. I need to put the pedal to the metal.........or the oil to the copper!!! Ciao!

Hi Kathi,

I think I found your blog on someone else's blog roll. I think it was Laura Hardy's. I saw the thumbnail of one of your horse paintings and I loved the name of your blog (made me think of welsh cobs, which I LOVE) and came to have a peek. Your work is just lovely. I'm glad I did :)
