Happy New Year! January 1 2017

Happy New Year! January 1 2017
Sending my wishes for each of you to experience all you ever dream of.

I am so pleased to receive this installation photo of one of my paintings – it came to my email just over a week ago. A great way to greet the new year. The title is “Random Acts: My Piece of the Sky” from my Random Acts series where I explore apparently random markmaking to experience a sense of order or poetic meaning which is also expressed through the title.

Now to sit down and review my NY resolutions for 2017 – one is to update more often here in WordPress. So stay tuned.

What’s Going on in the Studio? August 29 2016


Golden Thread by Kathryn Arnold, Mixed Media on Paper, 60 x 115 inches.

I have been working on some black and white works on paper and will put together a gallery soon.

This work – 60 inches high by 115  inches wide  – actually I began this a little while ago but feel like  it is now ready to view.

The title is Golden Thread and it is mixed media on paper with collage. It has some embedded paper cranes with a string of golden thread and subtle words.


My work is currently installed at the Ritz-Carlton at Lake Tahoe. August 2016 – October 2016. Here are some installation photos.

These are a couple of photographs of my work installed @Infinity Towers lobby, San Francisco during April through July 27, 2016. The works just came down yesterday. This is Beach at Santa Cruz, an oil painting 54 x 60″ inspired by my imagination!


Installation of Commissioned Artworks

I realized today while reviewing my artwork work database that I never posted this image of a private commission. It was such a great experience to create these works. Hope you enjoy!

Just in from the recent past! a couple of exhibition images from Sandra lee Gallery group exhibition.

While browsing through and working with my artwork images this morning I cam upon 2 that I had not shared. These works are supremely framed, are small 18 x 18″ and are from my  “The Poet” series, a set of works inspired by Basho, a haiku poet from the Edo period in Japan.
