The Birth of My Style and “The Weathervane”

I think an “artist style” is more about what impressions life has left on them. What you see on the canvas are reflections of what they have seen, who they have loved, the emotions they have felt, all through the lens of scares life has left on their cornea.  What is wonderous about painting is how it reflects things that can not be said in words.

This painting is called The Weathervane.

The Weathervane, 2015 by Kate Norris

It was painted as a gift for a friend whose influence has lifted my career to new heights.

What was fascinating was the distinct style that emerged while this painting came to being. First, I realized my style of work is slow. This is an 8″x10″ painting that took 2-3 months to complete. This was the pace that made the process relaxing. Painting should never be stressful. The resulting style delights me. I see the reflections of my happy yet moody mind. It has a surreal quality that seems to speak to the truth of the reality in my head.  I loved how it turned out and I hope my friend does too.
