Mississippi Art Colony has ended until next Spring, but memories will be indelibly left in my mind. Deep in the woods with  4o or so artists doing nothing but painting and talking about their art. There is nothing better for someone who spends 97 percent of their time alone in a studio.  I was in heaven for 6 days with my friends. I took oil paint to work with on panels as well as paper.  There is something so mesmerizing about the tactile feel of oils on paper.  I have wanted to expand on my Insomniacs series and I took this past week at Art Colony to get some good beginnings going on paper.  I may leave these as is; or I might add more layers to them.  Only time will tell but for now they have the total feel that I was trying to capture, and that might just be enough.

Thank you for reading my blog, I hope it in some way helps and interests you about art and painting.

Take care,

Cathy Hegman

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.
