Kathy Francis is an impressionistic artist dedicated to painting the Northwest skies and landscapes. She uses a muted palette and keenly observed compositions to capture approaching thunderheads as well as the diffused light of calm afternoons. Because her goal is to capture the light and colors peculiar to a place, she takes her paints and easel outdoors painting, en plein air. Studio work is done to add finishing touches, to remove imbedded bugs and dirt, and add a final coat of varnish.
Studio is open by appointment during the remainder of the year.
