White Rose in Blue Bottle floral still life
By Katherine Kean
Located in Palm Desert, CA
This small still life alla prima painting of single rose in a deep blue bottle was painted directly in a single session. The spontaneous brushwork is carried out on a one quarter inch linen panel. Signed on verso, this artwork includes an official certificate of authenticity. Katherine Kean’s paintings seek moments of breath-taking transition in nature; a gathering of clouds or changing tides; times when the elements of the landscape combine with the alchemy of imagination to illuminate the world of heightened mood and sensation. Her work aims to capture these fleeting moments in time and reveal the serene center that can arise in the midst of nature's turbulence. Katherine Kean has exhibited in museums and galleries across the United States, and has been acquired by many private and corporate collections. She has been honored to have her work selected for Bloomingdales in Santa Monica, California, Schiffer's 100 Artists of the West Coast II, Paint America's Paint the Parks, Manhattan Arts Healing Arts International...

Foothill Storm Cloud alla prima landscape painting
By Katherine Kean
Located in Palm Desert, CA
Interesting phenomena affect the look of the landscape, whether it is the light effects caused by the reflective particles thrown into the air by a volcano, or the strange twilight caused by a storm suddenly and dramatically changing the angle of the sun’s rays and for a moment, relighting the landscape. Here, it is a storm cloud quickly growing above the mountains. This small alla-prima painting is created directly in a single session, on gallery wrapped linen, with 1 1/2 inch deep stretchers. The edges are hand painted, providing a finished look, suitable for framing, or beautiful left as is.

Rain Dots landscape impressionistic
By Katherine Kean
Located in Palm Desert, CA
Drops of rain reflect bright lights and punctuate the soft, tonal background of a rainy day. The windshield highlights the contrast of an intimate experience within and the effect of the elements outside. Both painterly and playful while striking a midpoint between pure representation and an emphasis on the picture plane. Painted on a cradled gesso board panel, with 1 1/2 inch deep, smooth wood edges. Suitable for framing or beautiful left as is. A childhood of moving and traveling around the United States has shaped Katherine Kean's vision, as have journeys to eastern Africa, Mexico, Scotland, France and painting jaunts all over Kean's now native California. Born in West Virginia, moving later to Ohio and New Jersey, but growing up mainly in Massachusetts, she attended Rhode Island School of Design, graduating with a BFA in Film, Video and Animation. Long fascinated by the intersection of order and chaos in the natural world, Katherine Kean skillfully uses observation, memory, and interpretation to translate her love of natures kinetic phenomena into paintings that capture the often turbulent emotions within light, weather, and landscapes. Her work has exhibited in museums and galleries across the United States, including the LACMA Art Rental and Sales Gallery and the Brand Library Art Gallery in Los Angeles...

Liquid Sun Splash landscape impressionistic
By Katherine Kean
Located in Palm Desert, CA
���If you don't like the weather in New England now, just wait a few minutes.�۝ - Mark Twain The weather in Hawaii provides a similar effect, or rather than waiting as it changes, a person can experience radiant sunshine and pouring rain simultaneously. This one in a series of "windshield paintings"is painterly, brushy, a little bit textured, and slightly raised, particularly for the drops. Painted on gallery wrapped linen, on 1 1/2 inch deep stretchers. The edges are hand painted, providing a finished look, suitable for framing, or beautiful left as is. A childhood of moving and traveling around the United States has shaped Katherine Kean�۪s vision, as have journeys to eastern Africa, Mexico, Scotland, France and painting jaunts all over Kean�۪s now native California.
