These artists share a richly hued color palate, Cathy in oil painting and the Jo in encaustic painting.
Cathy’s journey to her present work in oils takes very circuitous route. Patterning of dancing figures, female forms, and felines lead to brilliantly colored floral shapes belonging to many seemingly familiar flowers.
Jo’s architecturally-oriented encaustic paintings are meditations in quiet, seemingly simplified landscapes of doorways, archways and buildings. Color relationships and proportions are used as a reaction to creative urges to add color, texture, and emotion to geometric forms.
