Auction Ending Soon: "Manifesto 3.0 Wave And Silver Sky: Auction."

Through this series I'm expressing my concern about the earth and environment. With waves of plastic descending on ocean shores, when will something be done? We revere nature, we worship the sun and the ocean and the mountains - yet we don't appreciated it's fragility and vulnerability. But perhaps I'm preaching to the choir?

"Two Palms, Gulf Coast" Original Plein Air Painting

12X12’, painting at Coquina Beach Park

12X12’, painting at Coquina Beach Park

I wish I knew enough about palms to guess how old these two are. They’ve (obviously) bent in the wind and are guarding the inlet into Sarasota Bay. The Bay, I recently learned, is only about four feet deep and full of grasslands and wildlife.

Now at auction: a Twomety original oil painting "Storm's A Comin" 

Process

This was one of those days when you can feel the ions in the air. Was it dangerous to start painting this enormous, approaching storm? Probably not; but I was in the moment and it was dramatic. This was painted on a beach near Tampa, Florida. The storm stayed out to sea, thankfully. 

The contrasts and colors were simply incredible. I had to hurry up not to get wet. Every time I look at this, I'm taken back to that warm tropical air, the flashing lightening and the sense of impending chaos.

This work is 10 X 8" on archival canvas. It is unframed. This is how this painting would look framed:

Dreaming Beyond Cancer

Watercolor by Catherine Twomey
Dreaming Ocean

I had to get out the paints this morning to get down a dream vision. What a contrast my dreams have been lately to those before September 18, when kidney cancer was still a part of my husband's body. From dark and unsettling to calm, beautiful, light and well, dreamy - I much prefer the most recent dreams.

This is a watercolor on Arches watercolor paper. The swelling wave behind the breaking one brings an anticipatory tension to the seascape. It's difficult to describe the sense of relief we carry today, and how previously "critical" problems have been minimized.
