Success in Vivid Views!

The Vivid Views Show in New Mexico was a amazing success I’m so thankful for all of the people who attended, and missed those who wanted to attend but couldn’t.

June Paintings! Part 1

I do these animal drawings as blind contour(I am looking at a picture of a bunny, not my paper, as I draw,  so I don’t see what has happened on the page until I’m done and look down. They don’t all turn out, but sometimes it is a pleasant yet unexpected surprise) Without further ado, here are the July paintings. “The Unexpected Visitor” Painting by Cathy Carey 2015© “The Unexpected Visitor” Oil on linen 24″ x 20″ $1200 unframed $1350 framed A beautiful spring day at the beach

New Paintings – Paso Robles

This month I have been working hard on paintings from my trip to Paso Robles, here are a few I finished up! <a href=”http://fineartamerica.com/art/paintings/whimsical/all&#8221; style=”font: 10pt arial; text-decoration: underline;”>whimsical paintings for sale</a> This month several paintings are coming off the easel.

Wildlife Paintings by Cathy Carey

Coyote Joy close up – 36 x 36 oil painting by Cathy Carey I love painting animals and their relationship to the environment. I like to show the space around them like a beautiful coat they wear and live in. In my garden we have a family of coyote that make a home in and around our neighborhood. I get such a kick out of seeing them, but I am very careful to not let my dogs get near them, or to let the coyotes get comfortable with us. They are a wild animal and for everyone’s s

October 2014 – In progress – on the easel

My first painting this month was of a place I walk the dogs, near Bernardo Mountain. I see quail in our yard and am always amused by the posturing of the parents and the little chicks tumbling across the path. The Dad reminds me of a crossing guard, holding back traffic while the family relocates. The Mom looks in a panic, trying to keep all the chicks moving and safe. The chicks look like they are stumbling out into the light of day from the dark under the bushes, barely abl
