 Virginia Country Store

This original, custom framed oil painting by internationally award-winning artist 
Catherine Twomey speaks to the nostalgia of warm summer days. Painted en plein air 
(outside, on site), it is of a Virginia General Store. It oozes the heat and light of a 
late summer afternoon, where the old pumps sit waiting for their next customer along the shadowed country road.

I painted this building because it has become an old friend; I pass it almost daily. It's 
design and classic beauty were obvious. I spent hours painting it as the day waned, 
but loved every minute.

On archival linen board, the size of the painting is 5 X 7", with the frame it comes to 
9.5 X 11". The frame is custom made by King of Frames (California) and is a rich 
brown wood with a gold lining and very well made, ready to hand. It sets the painting 
off beautifully and will enhance any setting.

The colors, texture, contrasts of light and shadow evoke the emotions of the 1940's, 
when this store was built. It is a southern classic still serving a contemporary clientele 
with dignity and charm. 

Background

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 recently 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.I've won many 
national and international awards for my artwork, and am a published author which 
means I have no excuse for bad writing or editing. Mea culpa. I'm not nearly as good a 
writer as my brother Steve, who won a Pulitzer Prize and has some books in the works. 
I do, however, try.I have studied with some of the best artistic and scientific minds in the 
world: fellow medical illustrators. Leonardo da Vinci is considered the first medical 
illustrator, and his knowledge, technical abilities and deep curiosity are benchmarks 
for the field. As a Board Certified Medical Illustrator, I have had the privilege to know 
and learn directly from some of the most extraordinarily talented, smart and influential 
visionaries living today.Fine art influencers include Georgia O'Keefe, da Vinci, 
Rembrandt and Degas. I look to their struggles and triumphs, and their unflinching 
persistence.

"East Fall Blue Ridge No. 4" oil on linen board, C. Twomey

Please Click HERE to view the AUCTION!
This 8 X 10" on archival board oil painting is from a series, the first of which won the nationally acclaimed "ArtInPlace" competition and was reproduced into a 12 X 24' mural along a busy highway in Charlottesville, VA. Can't get enough of the Blue Ridge mountains, especially in the fall. This view is from Skyline Drive, looking towards the east around sunset in the fall. I've painted it four times now, and that's still not enough! This particular painting is more luminous than previous works, as the technique evolves.

"Taylor Jug and Pear" by Twomey

This auction is ending tonight, so please click here to place your bid.

I collect antique moonshine jugs, and loved the shape, coloring and stenciled letters of the maker on the jug. The pear I chose especially to go with the pottery, which I thought gave it a run for the money in terms of fabulous color.

This is an original oil painting, done alla prima (in one sitting - a long day!). The painting is on archival board and is unframed, 6 X 8".

There have been great influencers throughout my life. My mother, who raised three children alone on a schoolteacher's salary. My brother Steve, who won a Pulitzer Prize and has some books in the pipeline. My sister Ann, who is the good child. Cousin Julia Sweeney from Saturday Night Live and many books, one-woman shows and screenplays. My sister-in-law Kathleen Carroll runs the editorial side of the Associated Press, and is Chairperson of the Pulitzer Prize Award Board. All of these influencers have accomplished amazing things despite great adversity.

"Strawberry Eggplant Locked" Original Oil

Original Oil by Catherine Twomey
Stawberry Eggplant Locked by C. Twomey
Having just returned from a workshop in Sedona, Arizona, I immediately started a painting that would highlight what I'd learned. The terrific instructor was Abbey Ryan. She was prepared, patient and thorough throughout the workshop, which lasted one week. We even were located very close to a 20,000 acre unconfined wildfire, but we continued undaunted.

What was most informative about the workshop was learning that the skills I'd developed over the last thirty years as a medical illustrator translate over to oil painting. What a joy to be able to control the paint, using layering and coloring to control the emotion and focus of the painting. Abbey helped me a great deal with how to use and hold the brush as well as how to logically work my way through a painting to achieve what I intended.

There is much to be said for devoting myself completely to art for a set amount of intensive time. I was surrounded by fellow artists all looking for inspiration and progress, and the support we willed to each other was amazing.

Tomorrow, June 10, this original oil will be offered for sale at auction

The painting is sold unframed. The image below shows how the painting may look if framed:

Wakefield Farm Shed With Dogwoods: Built 1781

First local plein air of the season, I painted this last Monday at the gorgeous Wakefield Farm. The farm is in my back yard and houses 25 horses. It was built in 1781 and has many of the original structures, including this shed. 

I was taken by the beautiful aging grays of the shed's walls against the brilliant pinks, white and apricots of the flowering dogwoods. What a sight! As I painted at least five people came over for pleasant chats and comments. A day that will not soon be forgotten.

The original oil is 5X7" and is on archival linen board. The painting is unframed. This is how the painting would look framed:

East Fall Blue Ridge 2

I perched along Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park looking to the west, towards theShenandoah Valley. Had my paints, easel and an outrageously gorgeous day to capture the fall colors. I loved the layers of mountains dissipating in the distance. And the colors! The blues next to the oranges - irresistible. This took longer than expected, I think because I didn't want the day to end.

Catherine Twomey
Advance Mills Hay Bales 1

Advance Mills was an old mill town about two miles from my home. The road, Advance Mills, is one of my favorites - twisty, turny, on a ridge - the views along it are so spectacular you really have to focus to stay on it. We looked at buying some of this land, so I spent a lot of time walking it and loved catching it at sunset. You can see why. I had to work fast. The woods behind were already dripped in shadow, with sky holes poking thru. What a glorious day.
