Yin and yang...arn`t these sides in all of us...I think true to onesel is what you should stay...this also shows how versitile as an artist you can be...

It's OK. I think we have all had the in-the-box thing. My way out was through the top and I was in the very bottom.
Yours is crowded and when you step out and look back, you will see it was a window. And you will smile.

Dear Katie...I think that art, at its best, reveals our inner most landscape. And just like in nature, rough and rocky sits next to soft and green. The beauty is found in the truth of it all, which is rarely comfortable. You are amazing for sharing so much of your wonderful self.

Sending a full sky of stars your way,
Alex

Hi Katie,
Are you at all familiar with flower essences for emotional balance? The Bach (Healing Herbs) essence Mustard is good for that dark, gloomy mood that seems to come from nowhere and takes over for awhile. Flower essences are a healthy, natural way to help work through soul states and transform them and the self into a greater level of balance and understanding. Forgive me if this seems intrusive (or even like a sales pitch, which it isn't), but I love your work and the way that you share your soul, and want to offer something that can help.

Blessings, Cindy

Katie - your art speaks to my soul as always. Yes, I would be one who would buy this - that is of course if I were ever over there :)
I wish I could be true to myself like you are ... I guess it will come eventually xo

embrace yourself and all your aspects. expose when you feel like it and tuck away when you don't. no one has to understand. you don't have to even explain. the paintings speak for themselves. they are all so lovely. keep riding the waves as they come, katie.

Oh Katie, I love the box painting! It really speaks to me. Maybe because it is so familiar. But I also see it as a painting with great hope because I have a God who is way bigger than the box and even when we want to close our eyes and stay there, He lovingly and very gently starts opening the box and peeling down the sides letting more and more light of Himself come in. Thank you so much for being true to yourself to paint the truth of your heart! That's what I so love about your work! If all art were "pretty", then art would lose a powerful voice that the world longs to hear.

Katie,
I love that painting. It is real and speaks to a very real part of me that is always there somewhere. Anyone can slap together something happy and cheerful and generic and ... whatever else. But your artwork- all of it- is genuine and originally your wonderful diverse and perfect self. In all its incarnations.
Really looking forward to seeing all of these at artfest. Do you know yet the table layout for vendor night?

hun.. I'd own this in a heartbeat. this speaks volumes to me.

WOW! You have no idea how this post touched me! I had been thinking lately about this split personality I seem to be having with my art. I work on a few series at a time as sometimes I feel very unrestrained and raw while other times my emotions I guess are lighter and more contained. Some pieces are rather whimsical and light and then I have others that are just out and out weird, raw, unrestrained and some might even say ugly. I think in that way they are like journal pages (tho I keep one of those too). I really like the Chagall like one on top. Thanks for sharing. It's nice to know there is another Jekyl and Hyde artist out there! lol

Misty

the best thing about the dark mood guest is that eventually it has to go visit someone else for awhile.... Thinking of you and hoping your guest is packing or has already left.
love to you~ xoxox

Susan Tuttle

Katie,
These pieces are beautiful to me--stirring. I absolutely love how you embrace your truth.

Hugs,
Susan

Kristen Robisnon

I love that your art work is such an expression of you each piece causes a moment of pause, a moment to ponder and reflect.

Wonderful work! I love both of them and this post really speaks to me. :) GREAT WORK!
*Hugs*

Sally Turlington

Katie, you know how I admire your art and I admire you for painting your truth as it comes. Your dark art is even more appealing to me, I think -- so much feeling there. Love both of these. Wish I were going to ArtFest to see you and your wonderful stuff.

Your painting feels so very familiar....my state of mind these last few weeks.
