Why have an oil portrait painted by Kathleen? - There are many options for you to consider when having a portrait created to honor a person who is important in your life. Photographs often flatten the subject, distorting perspective and not accurately capturing colors.  A fine art oil painting by Kathleen is truly an original work of art by a master craftswoman who has developed her talents over the years to achieve a style all her own.  Her paintings are heirlooms to be handed down for generations to come. She captures the vivid combinations of color that only a skilled artist can produce using oil paints. Her choices of relationships in placing colors next to each other are exquisite. In addition, she is very accurate and effective in her use of values – the shades of color and light used in paintings. The artistic judgment she uses in composition and design show unity and movement. Where do you look when seeing one of Kathleen’s portraits for the first time? Right to the eyes of the subject – the focal point of any portrait. Her interpretations enter into every portrait.  Her work is not the rendering of a photograph; instead, it is the creation of a portrait that conveys mood and emotion to celebrate the subject. Kathleen does not romanticize her subjects, yet she defines them to capture their essence. Through her artistic abilities she produces an authentic sense of presence, attitude, personality and spirit. Witnessing her portraits, viewers feel as if they immediately know the subjects, and often tears of joy appear in response.
