Winner of the 2017 Art Giveaway Contest!


Thank you all (well over fifty) people who entered the 2017 Art Giveaway Contest. The official winner is:

Darla McDowell of the beautiful state of Texas

Congratulations Darla!

I was overwhelmed with the response to the contest - so much so that I would like to offer the other entrants the opportunity to own one of my originals.

I am beginning a new body of work as my style and size of work is ever-changing. Along the way I have accumulated work and would like to make room for my next group of paintings. The works range from sketches, to drawings, to watercolors and original oils.

If you entered the contest, the only thing I ask is that you pay for the mailing. The cost is a flat $3.00, paid using Paypal. The $3.00 covers the mailing envelope, the backing material, the postage and my time to prepare the shipment. I'm not making any money on this!

In order to follow up on your interest I will need the Paypal payment, your email and your address. In no way do I share your personal information! If you can't use Paypal please contact me via email to see if we can arrange for another method of Payment.

FYI I will not be able to ship until starting in mid-Februay, 2018 as I'm taking a month to do nothing but paint. 

Thank you again for participating! It is wonderful there are so many people that love and appreciate art! Please let me know if you have any questions as I'm pretty much always able to answer them.

Best, Catherine

"Appearently So" A Trio of Boscs, Original Oil by C. Twomey

"Appearently So" by C. Twomey, 9 X 12" original oil

"Appearently So" by C. Twomey, 9 X 12" original oil

It's that time of year, and I found this trio of Bosc pears at the local grocery and had to paint them. I loved the spots, and the orangish glow throughout. The paint is lush; the colors strong and beautifully, carefully layered. This is an original oil, sized 12'W X 9"H. It is painted on archival linen from RayMar.

My painting process is to first layer in a warm color, like burnt sienna, onto white linen canvas. With that thin layer still wet, I wipe out the lightest areas, which later provides luminosity and usually is enough to define the shapes. Next, I apply the lightest and then darkest areas, which helps to establish the values and colors. Finally middle tones and more detailed areas are applied, always looking to harmonize the colors, refine the drawing and focus on the center of interest.

The painting has been varnished and will be carefully packaged by me. Please note that the painting is not framed.

BREAKING NEWS! I’ve just been notified that three of my paintings have been accepted for the highly competitive Randy Highbee 6X6 Squared exhibition in Los Angeles, CA. I'm very honored and excited to participate in this show featuring top nationwide artists.

About Me

I've been painting since 2008. Up until then, I honed my drawing and painting skills by practicing as a Certified Medical Illustrator. My blogs have been viewed by over 70,000 people worldwide, and I have over 2,000 followers on Facebook on Catherine Twomey Art. 

I proud and happy to write that I've just been notified that three of my paintings have been accepted for the highly competitive Randy Highbee 6X6 Squared exhibition in Los Angeles, CA. I'm very honored and excited to participate in this show featuring top nationwide artists.

My paintings are of a variety of subjects and sizes, ranging from 4 X5" up to 18 X 24" or greater. Each painting is carefully considered, sometimes in a series or in a similar approach to the subject matter. What's most important is that each painting is defined by the moment it is created. Whether it reflects a mood, or a moment, or something so beautiful it had to be painted; my soul goes into each stroke, color choice, composition and execution. Having studied Japanese Art for my Master's Thesis, I instinctively incorporate the Japanese respect for careful presentation and finishing, personally varnishing and packaging the work

My artwork has been featured at the world renowned TED (Technology, Education and Design) conference (TED MED in San Diego, on huge high definition screens throughout the exhibition center).


I accept Paypal payments. This painting is currently drying, so it won't be shipped for about three weeks. I personally varnish, wrap and ship the painting to ensure a successful delivery.

Additional recent news: 

• Accepted into the highly competitive Randy Highbee 6X6 Squared exhibition in Los Angeles, CA

• Medicine Illuminated Exhibition at the Lloyd Museum; 2015: Juried exhibition from the museum's collection.

• I won the nationally acclaimed ArtInPlace competition in Virginia which placed a 12' X 24' mural on aluminum of my work, now seen by thousands of commuters daily. 

• Two museums currently house my art: The William H. Benton Museum in Connecticut, and The LLoyd Museum in Cincinnati, Ohio. It was a great honor to be asked to exhibit and I continue to add to their collections. Speaking of collections, my work is a part of hundreds of private collections worldwide.

• Medicine Illuminated Exhibition at the Lloyd Museum; 2015: Juried exhibition from the museum's collection.

• The Lloyd Museum now has over 100 original pieces of my artwork in it’s collection.
