Our good friend Kathryn Trotter in Atlanta has nailed her latest collection of paintings. We are soooo loving her birds and have commissioned her to do some panels for us. I am sure you can guess which ones are ours (hint: think turquoise). We are so inspired that we have dusted off our sketch book, pulled out our paints and ... well, thats about as far as we have gotten.
I love her landscapes just as much as the birds. I could get lost on this river below.
You know why we like this one. The greens and blues are so incredible and fresh. I've seen this one in person and it is pretty fab.
I am trying to narrow down frame choices for the two panels below - they will go in my dining room. I am not good with frames and really have no idea what to do. I was thinking thin gold with an off-white linen liner (is that terminology correct?). But when I went to the frame store i lost my focus. Any advice? Do i even need to frame them?
Kathryn is having a show in Atlanta next Friday. Here is the info if you are in the area:
