The Amaryllis paintings are gorgeous - as is all your work.

Cathleen,
I just recently ran across your work on the internet..... and LOVE your work. Too bad Kansas is so far away from MT. Hood :(.... I would love to take your classes. It looks like you use a limited palette???? would you mind sharing your palette choices.

I look forward to having coffee with you each time you upload a new painting..... wonderful brush strokes, and textures.

Thank you everyone for such inspiring and great comments!
The palette question - Here is what I currently am using: White (Titanium or Titanium/Zinc), Ivory black, Ultramarine blue (m.graham's is more transparent than others), Cad Yellow light, Cad Orange, Cad Red lt, Cad Red Med, Alizarin Perm, Anthraquinone Red (m.graham), sometimes Viridian or Phthalo Green, for earth colors - Yellow ochre or Raw Sienna, sometimes Burnt Sienna. My palette is sort of flexible between mostly those colors. I try to keep it as simple as possible. If I add too many colors to my palette, it is hard to stay focused on what's important, which is VALUES.
