Kathleen Othon, Ashburn Member Since January 2012 Artist Statement Art has found me, an older woman who never guessed that art would be my passion, my pass time and my pleasure at this time in my life.
I am thankful that after a life time of nursing others I now have time to nurture my soul.
I am an untrained artist who never thought she would be thought of as an artist, it thrill me still. I'm having fun and I hope my art will bring a smile to your lips.
My love is painting flowers, but I call them my fanciful flowers because I don't have the skill to paint them as Mother Nature has, I just have fun with them trying to give them character, some even have names, especially those I paint for children.
When I finish a painting I photograph it and digitally modify the image to make my abstract floral images.
