I’ve done a lot of paint pouring, but for the first time i’m carefully keeping track of what paints I’m using, what mediums are employed, how the pour goes, etc. This is the first piece I’m happy with. It’s a combination of DecoArt acrylics and distilled water. What a joy to have a moment to do testing and record it.
SO THANKFUL to the Colorado collector of “East Fall Blue Ridge 3.0” print from:
and on my B-Day, no less. Really appreciative! Kind of makes up for the fact that it’s been pouring all day.
SOLD: "Manifesto, The Hidden Earth" sold yesterday to a collector in Washington, DC. So grateful to them for appreciating a work that speaks to the earth. For additional original works: https://www.catherinetwomey.com/available/

There is something so satisfying about working with someone who has commissioned your work. The gift of having their trust to complete a vision is priceless. This work began with a trip up the Blue Ridge Parkway to the Grandfather Mountain area. I hiked extensively, capturing reference photos and a good sense of what the mountain was about. Just this morning, the commissioner commented:
It’s beautiful and we love it! It’s going to look great in our living room.
Thank you so much.
Grateful, thrilled and touched by the whole process.
This work is moving along! It is so thoroughly enjoyable to see the vision come alive, and the paint is cooperating. Being almost August in North Carolina, however, it takes a while to dry. In this image the sun has not yet been rendered - the mountain layers will "tell" me how to show it. So grateful for this commission and support.
Thrilled to begin this challenging commission! I took a day trip up to the mountain to get a feel for the area and soak in the history. There were some hikes that had significant elevation gains, but oh, the views!
From the website about the mountain: "This summer, Grandfather Mountain was inducted into the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame, having received five consecutive Certificate of Excellence awards since 2014, including 2018. In total, since 2012, Grandfather Mountain has received seven consecutive Certificates of Excellence."
