- Cathy and Bruce
- We have been collaborating artists our entire married lives. Our work is always evolving. The experiences we share, or individually participate in, become a part of what we create. Bruce photographs and throws pots and I paint and create jewelry and other objects from precious metals. Bruce's photos are sometimes the inspiration or reference for my paintings and often times I sculpt and carve into his pottery. The results from our combined knowledge and skills becomes something beautiful that we enjoy sharing. Enjoy.

This piece came from my love of drawing and although it is on a prepared canvas and its background is a combination of titian buff and white oxide, the cups have been drawn with various pencils and highlighted with white pastel. The painting has been varnished with Golden's matt varnish. If you look closely, there is a slight shadow where a third
cup should be...ergo "you are missed". January first will be a whole year I've been without a very dear friend and I miss her greatly.
This is another part of my search. I'm beginning to love the small and intimate size compared to my usual large format. I've always enjoyed the physical part of painting large however the transporting and practical part of it....not so much. Along with experimenting with the extreme size change I've found myself enjoying the freedom that using many mediums can bring. I used acrylics, pastels, sgraffito, and craypas to create this landscape.
