Last week, as you may recall, the hubs was in Austin for SXSW. While out at night, running between gigs, he passed this gallery. He said he actually stopped and pulled out his camera to take a picture of the painting below – he said it reminded him of me and my friend and former roommate back in NM. He thought so much of it, he actually took a picture of the stores contact info so we could track it down.
The artist is Kathy Womack. The above painting is part of the Women & Wine collection. As a mother of three she lives vicariously through the women in her paintings. Her paintings are just gorgeous and I can’t seem to look away from the above image – though her other paintings are beautiful and engaging as well.
I really wish we had an extra room (with plenty of wall space) to get one of her paintings. She even made plates out of the images – so cool and what I’d be asking for for my birthday if we had some place to store them.
