KMD2989 Wildflower Medley by Colorado contemporary artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (5x7, oil, landscape, wildflowers)




I have another plethora of pictures from Crested Butte taken last month when the wildflowers were at their peak. Every hillside was an array of either purples or yellows and a feast for the eyes. This scene was on the road between the town of Crested Butte and the ski area. My friend Pat and I spent quite a bit of time trying to capture every square inch of this scene on our cameras!

KMA2981 Morning Prelude by Colorado contemporary artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (acrylic, 10x10, abstract landscape)






This is an exploration into abstracting a landscape using my acrylic paints on a wood panel board. I applied a texture base on it before starting to paint it. I then used many layers of paint on the texture to create some interesting effects as the brush skips over the raised portions of the texture leaving paint marks in unexpected shapes. My challenge was to create an interpretation of the landscape without a lot of definition, the old "less is more" philosophy. Once I am finished with some great commissions that I am working on, I plan to tackle more of these intuitive paintings.

KMA2974 Unfolding by Colorado fine artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (10x10, acrylic, abstract floral still life painting)



This still life abstract painting was created using layer upon layer of acrylic on a textured 1" panel board. It was created intuitively from memories of the many pastel floral still life paintings I created in pastels years ago. This is one of the abstracts shown last month in my solo show here at Brushstrokes Studio-Gallery in Denver, CO. I used complimentary colors of blues and oranges to create a real atmosphere with the darker background enhancing the poppy like flowers flowing out of the dark vase. These intuitive paintings do challenge me after the many years of painting from my photo reference where there is an end in sight!

KM2985 Luscious Moment by Colorado contemporary artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (16x8 oil painting on linen, floral)



This floral was created to hang in my show last month as one in a series of 3 florals in the strong vertical format which gives some interesting and new compositional approaches. I love capturing a moment in time when photographing close up giving such importance to just one or two flowers as opposed to a landscape. Be on the look out for a new series from my trip last week to Crested Butte, Colorado where I spent 4 days photographing perhaps every flower blooming there!

KM2984 Paradise Revisited by Colorado artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (16x8, oil, floral, garden, poppy)


Here is a return to the past as I still love painting poppies. I thought a tall vertical would be a fun composition. It was painted for my recent solo show at Brushstrokes Studio. I enjoyed revisiting an old friend in the form of a local Denver garden reference that I never tire of painting from.

KM2980 Twilight’s Magic by Colorado Artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (30x40, oil, landscape, Moab, Southern Utah, sunset, dusk)



I came upon this scene on the way into Moab,Utah last October just as the sun had dropped behind the mountains. It was a magical moment filled with a rainbow of saturated purples, blues and reds. I had to paint this with a brush rather than palette knife as this piece isn't about texture but about expressing the calm magic of twilight when all the busyness of the day’s events set with the sun. For me it is the best time of day as the world seemingly comes to a halt and peace reigns.

KM2939 Cosmic Purpose by Colorado fine artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (60x48, landscape, Rabbit brush, textural, oil painting, southern Utah, desert, foiliage)


This is the first painting created for my solo show at Brushstrokes Studio-Gallery here in Denver, Colorado. This scene was so beautiful when I came upon it, with the rich sages, yellows and purples along with the textures and backlighting that I knew it would be the first painting I would create for my show "The Journey Home" The show opens tomorrow and will run for a week. I am very excited to present textural paintings from Southern Utah and explorations into abstraction.

The Journey Home Solo Show Kit Hevron Mahoney (fine art abstract and representational oil and acrylic paintings)

I am one day away from my solo show at Brushstrokes. It has been an exciting and challenging journey to create a body of works, both abstract and representational. I chose to do a series of paintings from a photo trip taken last October, ostensibly to the National Parks in Utah. However, the government shutdown foiled that plan but my friend Pat and I were not to be deterred and found some of the most beautiful scenes outside of the parks. My representational works are based on what we found and photographed.
My venture into the abstract paintings is on ongoing venture where I start with a photo reference or still life floral but soon let the painting take the lead. This intuitive process is done in acrylic where I feel I can experiment with lots of different substrates in addition to the paints themselves.
If you live in Denver, please stop by Brushstrokes Studio-Gallery tomorrow and see what my journey has been!

KMD2950 Pondering Clifford Still by Colorado artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (5x7 original oil, figurative, museum, Clifford Still)



It has been awhile since I have made time to post. I have been busy painting commissions, learning new computer software and I am now getting back to focusing on my upcoming solo show "The Journey Home - A Painting Odyssey" at Brushstrokes Studio-Gallery. (opening on June 21, 2014). We are having a big spring snowstorm here in Denver today, so I am using it as an excuse to stay home, warm and have a catch up day. I shot this subject while visiting the Clifford Still Museum here in Denver. I went to the museum thinking I would not be enthralled with his work but was very surprised to find that much of his work intrigued me! Here is someone enjoying and studying it too!

KMD2948 Endless Summer by Colorado artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (5x7, oil, landscape, Moab, Utah,autumn, floral landscape)


This painting is a study for a larger piece to come. It was a scene found south of Moab while traveling last fall with my great friend and photographer Pat. We screeched to a stop when we saw the most amazing morning light on the fall blooming Rabbit Brush with the blue, blue mountains and sky in the distance. We photographed every square inch of this beautiful scene!

KMD2947 Innocent Curiosity by Colorado artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (7x5 original oil, lamb, sheep, animal)


While out photographing the wildflowers at Crested Butte a few summers ago, we came upon a herd of sheep wandering with their herder on the road. My eyes met this fellow's eyes and his ears seem to express his surprise and curiosity!

KMD2946 Hidden Treasures by Colorado artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (5x7 original oil landscape, Italy, vineyards)



SOLD 
This painting is from a reference photo taken quiet a few years ago when I traveled to Italy which is one of my favorite places to go in Europe. The vineyards are so romantic as they speak of good times ahead! It is fun to relive my travels while perusing my photos of the many places I have been fortunate enough to see and experience.

KMD2945 Untamed by Colorado Artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (5x7 original oil, garden landscape, poppies, floral)



SOLD

Surprise, another poppy painting from a favorite garden here in Denver, Colorado that I found several years ago. I love the light and wildness to the garden which grows with no real plan creating a multitude of exciting compositions which I never tire of.

KMD2944 Ocotillo by Colorado fine artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (5x7 original oil, Ocotillo, desert, Arizona, landscape, cactus)



As I am reviving my small painting routine it is such a fun journey going through my photo reference of many years. It makes me so grateful for all the amazing places I have been privileged to travel to and experience through the lens of my camera. I lived in Arizona many years ago and became acquainted and enamored with the desert landscape. The Ocotillo is one of my favorite blooming cactus as depicted in this small painting.

KMD2943 Morning in the Village by Colorado fine artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (7x5 oil, urban, cityscape, Europe, Germany)


It is a fun change getting back to these small paintings again. Most of what I am painting now is for my show in June, all of which is larger and takes much longer to finish, therefore, these small ones give me a faster sense of completion and also prime me for subjects I might want to do larger. This scene is from a photo taken while in Germany many years ago and has been in my folder of "painting possibilities" for some time now. I loved the afternoon light on the buildings in this narrow street we wandered upon. Of course, I no longer remember which city we were in.

KMD2942 July's Abundance by Colorado artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (5x7 original oil, wildflower landscape, floral, Crested Butte, CO)


SOLD
I have photographed this scene many times while visiting Crested Butte, Colorado during the wildflower season in July. It is one of the most spectacular areas in Colorado where the hills are literally seas of color. I don't know why I have waited so long to paint this particular shot since I have stopped at this same sight every year to capture it with my camera. Finally, I have interpreted it on canvas!

KMD2941 Fleeting by Colorado Fine artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (7x5, original oil, floral, poppies)

 
 
SOLD
I had to come back to my all time favorite, the poppy. With winter holding on so tight this year it is fun to look through all my colorful spring reference in anticipation of the longer, brighter and more colorful days ahead. The wilder garden makes painting such a free process with no real structure but an abundance of color and texture to play with.

KMD2940 Grazing by Colorado artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (7x5 oil, animal, horse, landscape, original oil)


After quite a hiatus from my small paintings I am returning to posting again. I needed a paint break to regroup after a busy 2013 filled with many large commissions, all of which were a joy to create. I am having fun going through all my photos to see what floats my cork to paint now. I found this beautiful scene last year in Kauai of all places (not where I would go looking for horses!) This year promises to be a busy one as each of us at Brushstrokes is doing a solo show. I will have my show on June 21 so stay tuned as I continue solidifying my ideas for the show.

KM2916 Fall's Destiny by Colorado artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (fall, autumn, aspen trees, fall aspen, Utah)

   
I fell in love with this scene while on my trip through Southern Utah last October. A winter storm was brewing leaving the skies a dark grey blue. The turning gold aspen against that sky were colors to behold. In spite of how tumultuous early winter storms are, this scene had a really peaceful feeling to it.

KM2920 Reflections Triptych by Denver, CO artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (48x72 acrylic waterscape)


This is a commission done for RBC Dain Rauscher in Fort Collins placed through Rowley Interiors. I painted 3 others for this beautiful new office space which I will be posting soon. I have had such fun doing these large pieces now that we have a studio large enough in which to create them. I am so grateful to have a had a year filled with so many commissions

KM2915 After the Rain by Denver, CO artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (12x12 oil urban landscape, New England, Marblehead, MA)



I have just returned from a week long road trip to Southern Utah with my friend and fellow photographer Pat. We saw some amazing landscape even with the National Parks closed, although we did get into Zion on our last day. This painting was done before leaving for Utah and is from a trip to New England a few years ago. It is one that has been in my "TO PAINT" files for quite awhile and it was fun to finally get to it. There will be some paintings from my Utah trip to follow in days to come. There will be a few in our upcoming show this weekend at Brushstrokes Studio-Gallery here in Denver.

Thank you Amy and Sean

Here is my 2nd painting whose sale proceeds will be contributed to the Colorado relief efforts.

KM2907 Nature's Jewels by Colorado artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (24x30 oil autumn, nature, Glacier National Park)


I was shocked at how much time has gone by since I posted on my blog. I seem to be going from daily paintings to monthly paintings being posted, although I am painting much more than that. It has been a great year for commissions and I am currently working on a piece for the Denver, Colorado Exempla Saint Joseph Hospital campus redevelopment project and last month had a poppy painting placed at the Kaiser Permanente Arapahoe office reception area. This painting is another I have created in the series of painting from images that I have put aside through the years. I found this image on a trip several years ago to the Canadian part of Glacier National Park with my great travel companion Pat. I have always loved the color and light of this close up of some fall foilage, Oak leaves I am thinking. It is for sale at Longcoat Fine Art Gallery in Ruidoso, NM. I am currently gathering ideas for our upcoming October show "Define and Describe" at Brushstrokes.

KM2908 Autumn Spirit by Colorado artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (36x48 oil landscape, fall, autumn Colorado scene)


What a fantastic time I had painting this scene that I found one fall on the way in to our mountain cabin. It was so enjoyable to immerse myself into the warm colors and textures of this scene. This is one of many that have been on the back burner to paint and I finally have allowed myself to tackle. Our new space at Brushstrokes is so much more open allowing all of us to create much larger images.

KM2897 Sacred Shadows by Colorado artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (48x36 original oil landscape, abstract, aspen)


Where does one start after such a hiatus since my last posting that it is hard to know where to start. The good news is that I was swamped with several commissions including 5 abstract paintings for Eye Care Associates in Fort Collins, CO and one floral oil painting for the Arapahoe reception area of Kaiser Permanente in Denver, CO. They were all large pieces and I had a great time painting them. Hopefully, now I will be able to settle down to do some more small daily paintings in addition to the paintings I am starting for our next show here at Brushstrokes. This is a painting I have always wanted to do but never took the time to tackle and am really happy with the results.

KMD2895 Keenly Awaiting by Colorado artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (7x5 original oil landscape)

SOLD 
While searching my reference files I came across this nostalgic scene that jumped out and spoke to me to paint. As I was painting it, my studio partner Anita commented "didn't you paint that once before?" In looking back through my many Daily Paintings, sure enough, I had painted it several years ago. But then, this is the person that has been know to buy the same book twice and discover part way into the book that I have already read it!!!!! It is fun to paint a scene again to see how it compares to how I approached it many years ago.

KM2896 Toast the Town by Colorado contemporary artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (6x8 ,abstract, urban, San Francisco, original oil)

SOLD 
Weekend before last I went to San Francisco with my great friends Connie and Pat. We had the most memorable, fun an crazy times with good friends of theirs who live there. It is a weekend that will go down as top of my list of good times. I created this painting from a picture taken of sunset over San Francisco from the condo where we stayed. I had such a great time painting this with the freedom and abandon I felt throughout our visit. I hope this will translate into more of my work.

KM2891 Spirit of Vastness by Colorado contemporary artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (30x40 landscape)



This is another painting that took on a life of its own. I had intended to have some moody clouds in this scene from Montana photographed several years ago. When I got the sky in and observed the movement in the sky from the color and brush work, I decided they told more than clouds would in this piece. I may do another with the clouds to see where it goes. I love the serenity in these wide open spaces where one can see only the natural landscape for miles.
