Mississippi Art Colony Fall 2013 “All IN” working in oils outside…new beginnings


beginning stages of Long Boats II by Cathy Hegman oil on board


day two of the process


Day three and time to go home and finish in the the studio….I can see clearly many things to redefine and lose

again…I love working with layers as it adds a richness that is so compelling….

 Below…again…layering on another painting Weight of Balance Lilacs this is day three the first couple of days I forgot to take a photo of the stages…


The third painting I worked on at Art Colony was this one…Weight of Balance Red Herrings IV….It is in the primitive stages and has many more hours of addition and subtraction to come….thought I would post the work at this point and we shall see  how the process continues….

detail below showing the texture so far


The painting as a whole at this stage…below


Take care,

About Cathy S. Hegman

Art, much like a road links people together both visually and mentally. One can attain a glimpse inside the artist’s soul by studying the artist’s work, and perhaps find something that links them to the artist and the art. A work of art has the ability to resonate and touch the emotions without regard to age, gender, race, or religion through the application of pigment to canvas or paper. Art can be the voice that cries out without limits, or sometimes whispers the thoughts of the creator. Art speaks silently, yet conjures up feelings and gives satisfaction that is undeniable, and yet intrinsic. It validates our need to learn about ourselves, and gives us freedom to search for our own identities. The road is long and often dusty, but always renewing the spirit with inspiration. It is my hope in this lifetime to give a part of what I have learned through and on my journey with others. The deepest form of us is revealed in our thoughts and my art is the translation of my thoughts to paper and canvas. I paint layers of color and line to create a history of marks that will guide the viewer into my world of thought and engage them in the process. I embed personal symbols throughout my art to give it deeper meaning. I encourage you to think about life in a visual way and to contemplate our connections with each other and the world we share.
