Part 3 - Visit with Aunt Kathy

Welcome back for the last post on my Sister and her wonderful hill country property. As I mentioned before my Sister is a Wildlife Artist. Here is her fabulous art studio and gallery. Ain't it purty?

Kathy is very talented and has done many jack of trade things as an artist working with wood and copper as some of her favorite mediums among many others.

She built this door for her bathroom and made the copper panels herself.

Here is a close up of one of the panels. She chose a theme of native Texas flowers as her inspiration for the door.

Isn't this a gorgeous view of the panels with the light shining though?

Recently she taught a class on making these panels and has future plans to teach more.

Speaking of rocks here are some of her collection from her nature walks.

Here is a peek inside the studio workspace.

Here are some works in progress. Amazing huh?

Another awesome piece in progress.
She is doing pyrography - woodburning. I love how she is able to incorporate the grain of the wood into the picture and the depth and realism of her pieces.

Here is the gallery.

Do you spy the real kitty?

Even more of her art.

This is one of her dog Raven.
She does pet portraits by the way!

I have always really liked this one. Isn't her art just amazing? Check back tomorrow for a giveaway related to her art - hint hint!

I enjoyed very much the photos and comments about your visit to Kathy's last week. Blogs and cell phones are wonderful for staying in touch. They make my day happier. Love, Mom

What a cool door!

I once walked past a little tree that was just full of cedar waxwings. It was a transcendent experience.
