Kathy Hart Bio
Nature is my guide. I like to improve on nature using color, value, and composition to evolve an emotional response in the onlooker. My current medium is pastel. There's a variety of colors I use to form an underpainting with pastels, such as acrylics, ink as well as using textured colored papre and toned pastel board.
I like to capture the spontanous light that occurs in nature and then is gone in an instant. My goal is to create beauty that someone will love. Something that strikes a chord in them and they need to linger a little longer at the scene.
This process is all consuming and exciting to me. I started painting when I retired from working in the Health and Human Services field for 40 years. During those working years I yearned for the freedom to pursue expression on the 2 dimensional surface. My hope is that you enjoy the images. I don't make prints of my paintings, so you will be getting an original painting.
I am a member of the Pastel Society of Vermont and the Essex Art League.
