- 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.

Well, here they are together finally. I originally thought all three panels would be the same sizes, however it seems that by waiting to paint the last panel almost a year later, I miscalculated the size. Oh well, I still love the three together and the sepia monochromatic center almost gives the cattail an excuse for being a different size.

it I seem to get caught in the petals and the journey starts again. This is the second time I've painted
this image. The original painting was one of eight sold to a corporation and the paint was barely dry.
I think I missed the "getting acquainted" time after a painting is finished, that happens for me as an artist.
One thing that I noticed about this piece is that it can be hung horizontally or vertically and the composition still works. I'm going to have a difficult time letting this one go.

fun assessing the posture of the gourd and finding a personality in it. They are sealed and ready to be a part of your home for Christmas.
