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!
