"Once Upon…?"

Wanted to do a whimsical story piece with a fox and a rattan ball in a woodland setting.. but I realized I’m awful at coming up with stories…. so I guess they’re running away from something.. eh?

Fishies and Paint the Town


Kathleen Joyce © 2014Created this painting at one of the events I work for (at Unicoi Art Studio in Chicago) called Paint the Town.   We relocate painting workshops to local bars in Roscoe Village.  We bring all the materials and guests are invited to drink and eat while creating a masterpiece.  It's great for anyone from total beginners (stick figure art) to advance masters of the arts.  Want to check it out or attend one? Check out the link below!

Astronaut Comission


If  you're interested in a painting like this, I'm open for commission! By the way, I loved doing this!

P.S. I know I complain every time how I never get enough time to write on here.. I'm sorry/ and other stuff... guess I should stop apologizing until I get stuff done on here!

Updates on Website

So I've been doing an overhaul on my website... still have a lot to fix.   I just finished this space painting commission on wood, and I loved every minute of it! As soon as I'm allowed to post it.. I will and I really want to offer commission opportunities for Space paintings.  Didn't realize how much I would love it!  Thanks for following and sticking with me during these dry months!
