“So Here We Are” Original Painting – Hope Wins

N O T E  F R O M  T H E  A R T I S T :
Paintings will arrive signed and dated. I have a unique tradition in that I don’t sign my paintings until the very last minute possible.
-Kristy

T H E  C O L L E C T I O N ‘S   S T O R Y
The “So Here We Are” Collection is about surviving, then thriving. This is a celebration of moving through fear and chaos to discover joy in a new life, a new time. From mid March to late July this collection of watercolor and gouache paintings came to life. As the months passed darker and dramatic colors were replaced with transparent brights. As my heart found peace amid chaos, intensity gave way to lightness. Paintings were purposely not finished in any one given month or feeling. So each is the result of layering not only paint, but time and feelings.

I most often work on a small scale but dive deeply with layer after layer of paint. Details are added with the tiniest of brushes to trick and train the eye to see something new at every glance. My work is brazen in color, free from pretense but riddled with seemingly unending texture and linear detail. Best when viewed up close and curious when seen from a distance.

T H E  P A I N T I N G ‘S  S T O R Y
Hellbores are the first to burst from the ground in late Winter. Hellebores or Lenten Roses are the epitome of strength and survival. I worked on this painting off and on from the very beginning of March to the very beginning of August. This piece is a bookend to all that was and all that most certainly will be. This piece is singular hope in good days to come. This piece is hope in action amidst the good days already happening.
