Nothing beats that moment... when I can start putting down color
Featured Artist Kathy Armstrong
Morning Reflections, watercolor 20 x 22.75
Each painting is built up slowly with many glazes of transparent watercolor, leaving the paper for white. This glazing method creates a glow from within and a more solid form can be achieved than some other methods. Bringing a painting to life from a stark white sheet of paper is a source of real joy for me.?
Kathy grew up in upstate NY surrounded by nature, animals and her family of eight. She graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and later moved to Wisconsin where she worked as a graphic designer. Although sheís always loved creating art, Kathy didnít discover her preferred medium, transparent watercolor, until the early 90ís. Basically self-taught in watercolor, she has taken a few inspiring classes since then.
Kathy lives in Madison, with her husband, Jim, their two teenagers and one large sheepdog. Her work is shown at the Grace Chosy Gallery in Madison as well as Edgewood Orchard Galleries in Door County, Wisconsin.
