Lake Summer Swing, 6X8", original oil



About the Painting
Set up my easel on Kenilworth Lake this summer and painted this peaceful scene. The kids love to swing out over the lake, so on any hot day I can hear their laughter and joy. This morning was somewhat blustery, which moved the swing like a ghost was riding it and rippled the water.

Recently two of my pieces were awarded the cover and inside art for Wine and Country Living magazine, and were purchased for the publisher's collection.

"Jug Portrait 3.0" Twomey Alla Prima Oil For Sale


Painting is an action, an emotion and a skill. I paint so that interested people can enjoy and perhaps own my work. It's important that we develop a trust so you know that if you purchase this art, your satisfaction is critical. Feel free to ask any questions and please enjoy these works, whether you buy or not. 

Just finished this 6 X 6" portrait of a jug on archival linen board. The shapes and colors of these old jugs just fascinate me, which is why this is the third one I've painted. This is available if you're interested.

"Boat Dock 3" by Catherine Twomey, 6 X 6" oil


What a day for a daydream. Boat on dock; it's there every day. 


Background:

Art is my life. From the first art project I can remember (making a Christmas Nativity scene in grade school that overshadowed the resident artist) art has always been what brings me the greatest satisfaction. Without art, I am not who I am. 

I am now working full time as a fine artist, a dream that I've pursued for as long as I remember. Landscapes engage and challenge me, and I have a very soft spot for animals.

My artwork has been featured at the world renowned TED (Technology, Education and Design) conference (TED MED in San Diego, on huge high definition screens throughout the exhibition center). I recently won the nationally acclaimed ArtInPlace competition in Virginia which placed a 12' X 24' mural on aluminum of my work, now seen by thousands of commuters daily. 

Two museums currently house my art: The William H. Benton Museum in Connecticut, and The LLoyd Museum in Cincinnati, Ohio. It was a great honor to be asked to exhibit and I continue to add to their collections. Speaking of collections, my work is a part of hundreds of private collections worldwide.

As a passionate defender of Artist's Rights, I have traveled to Washington, DC to meet with Senators and members of Congress as they debated the Orphan Works law (an attempt to "orphan" copyrighted artwork by separating the creator from their work) which we defeated. In addition, as a member of the American Society of Illustrator's Partnership, I continue to work to secure reprographic royalty streams from the ongoing publication of artist's works.

In the summer, the oaks look bigger then ever, and this one is just plain massive. It has the most interesting branches and patina.
