Oil paintings on glass
Many people who come to Kate’s Studio Tour think they’ve stumbled into the Secret Gardens Tour by mistake. Being a landscape designer as well as painter, Kate’s studio is set in a lush garden full of whimsical found object sculptures. For the first time there will be painted glass garden tables for sale. A demonstration table will enable visitors to understand the intricate process of reverse glass painting.
Take Sheridan north. Cross Hastings and proceed to 32nd. Go left. 2nd house on left. 1231 32nd St.
I am a self-taught artist, led to painting from garden making; led to glass initially by its luminosity; lured to stay by the processes I discovered there. Like Wolf Kahn, a painter I greatly admire, “I don’t have ideas; I have appetites.”
Those appetites come first from nature; the rest from tasting the works of many people, places and times in all manner of materials. Having lived with gusto and traveled widely in the world and in books, I can no longer tell which influences are the strongest.
To being a painting is like beginning a good journey. Bring all that you know and let the trip take you.
Studio open during the remainder of the year
