    I truly am so delighted with your interpertaion Kathie… you are such a brilliant artist…thanks for using my work as a way to the LIGHT!! ;-))x

  • No, thankyou Lina for agreeing for the translation, it was an exciting start, then I kinda lost it for a bit, didn’t know how to progress, and after sleeping on it, it finally came together….LOL!

    I love what you have done here Kathie, and was fascinated watching your process unfold in the ‘Landscape & Light’ SoJie workshop. You are a very talented lady!!!

  • Oh gosh…..thanks Lynda, so nice of you to say, your pastels are outstanding, I’d love to be able to draw like that….maybe another 10 years of practice….LOL!

    Kathie, I sure love the work; and as a translation, it worked out brilliantly. The colors are beautiful, and the effect of the crinkles is outstanding!

  • Oh thankyou Frannie, I truly appreciate your kind words, it was a little more difficult than I anticipated, but I couldn’t have done it without the encouragement and support from yourself and everyone else, lol! (Breathing a sigh of relief)

    Kathie, I love it! It is stunning! I saw it being created step by step and it was so fascinating!

  • ooooh thanks so much Beatrice, gosh I was even thinking of glueing real plants on at one stage…LOL…my imagination has gone off the rails with this one, I now have a nice list of what to use for textures in future :)))

    Beautiful work, Kathie. I was with Lina when she took that photograph and when she worked on it.
    Loving the title and your painting. Excellent!!!

  • Oh thankyou Tori, it was certainly interesting for me, never took off my thinking cap on how to tackle the textures without losing the background, but it all worked out eventually…lol!
