KMD2523 Willow Creek Loop (landscsape, Texas Hill Country, original fine art)

I have wanted to paint this scene since finding it last spring on my visit to Texas and the Hill Country when the bluebonnets were in bloom. I was drawn to the amazing red cliff in the background that contrasted all the brilliant spring greens in the grasses. I loved the serenity of the slow flowing creek in the middle of the scene.
I have painted this larger and am showing it in our upcoming "Landscape Personified" show this Friday at Brushstrokes Studio Gallery.

KMD2521 Wild Garden by Kit Hevron Mahoney (garden, floral, poppy, landscape, original fine art)

With summer's end I had to have a last hurrah for the gardens. I love an unstructured garden where nature creates her own composition as was the case with this scene.

KM2515 Springtime in the Country (landscape, barn, countryside, original oil painting)

As my life here has been busy I find that I am drawn to the quieter and peaceful scenes of the countryside. There is nothing like the nostalgia of a red barn symbolizing a way of life that we city folk romanticize. Just the setting, however lets us stay in our imaginations and in place that feels good.

KMD2518 Prickly Pear (landscape, cactus, original fine art, floral)

I found this wonderful scene last spring while visiting the Hill Country of Texas in search of bluebonnets. Once one stops or slows down and looks around, it is amazing what a plethora of beauty that can be found surrounding us anywhere. I was so focused on searching for bluebonnet scenes that I almost overlooked this beautiful scene along a roadside.

KMD2378 Samantha (kitty, cat, pets, original fine art)

This is a tribute to my sweet, precious kitty Samantha who passed on last night. She and I were together for 17 years and she was a loving and true friend. Once, when I had laryngitis for 2 months I discovered that we had an amazing communication, all without words. In fact it was an eye opener as to how we can communicate without words with our amazing animal friends. I miss my little Samantha like crazy and know she was a once in a lifetime friend. Here's a cheer to our wonderful loving pets!

KM2516 Glorious Summer (aspen, landsscape, summer, original oil painting)

Another in my landscape series of painting with larger, bolder strokes and lots of paint. I am so enjoying the way my paintings are going by using less definition and more paint. This is a scene found one summer outside of Crested Butte on Kebler Pass while photographing with my Brushstrokes partner John K. Harrell. It took us quite a while to get over the pass as there was a photograph every 2 feet!

KMD2514 Oregon Countryside (landscape, barn, original fine art)

Once again, going through my photo reference I came across this romantic scene while driving around the Oregon countryside. I was drawn to the contrasting and complimentary green and red grasses surrounding the barn. The northwest has such deep saturated colors under the usual cloudy skies.

KMD2517 Summer's End (landscape, autumn, fall, river, original oil painting)

Summer coming to an end always leaves me with some melancholy; I look forward to the perfect Colorado days ahead but dread the shorter days. There must be some childhood memory of the great days of summer ending and school days ahead.
This scene was done at Upper Bear Creek last week for the Windows to the Divine paint out hosted by Evergreen Fine Art Gallery. It was one of those perfect Colorado days and a gift to be painting on location.
