Saying goodbye to a great man.

Storytelling at its best.
And most inspiring.

Thanks, Obama.

Welcome to Paradise!

I moved from the little dark cabin in Durham to a very light, spacious and 2-CAR GARAGED place in Paradise. The air is cooler, no more burn piles, no more leaf-blowers, pines are everywhere, the dirt is red...I am captivated by the drive up and down the Skyway - the beauty is intoxicating. Everything is inspirational.

Isn't that how it is when things are new?

Change is such a wild creature. You can't predict it's behavior. But if you foster it, pay attention to it, respond to it, the rewards are immense. I am happy, getting organized over here, will post pictures soon!

Happy Sunday, everybody!

Art Reception was a success!!

Thank you to EVERYONE who came, who couldn't and wrote me notes, for all the great energy that is still strong in my little cabin - Thank you!!!

My available work is getting smaller and smaller, and in the next few weeks, I should have more up. I'll be working on a few commissions first.

Again, thank you for making my work exciting and valued. I am still on a great big high!

Fall is here!

And that means cozy blankets, scented candles, slow-roasting kitchen smells, and stormy weather.
The chill in the air sends my heart in moody directions. A welcomed guest.

Where I've been and where I'm going.

I've just come back from the Grand Canyon; I had an adventure I'm sure to look back on fondly, right after I get over my remorse that it is over for now. I learned so much, made so many great friends, suffered skin afflictions and wept myself to sleep with the beauty of the starry night sky for 16 days.

I've got plenty to paint about, I'm just trying to find my voice with the paints these days. I anticipate great and Grand offspring from the seeds of this trip.

Here are a couple pictures to bide my time before the paintings start taking shape.

It was a trip of a lifetime.

Here is me finally learning how to row:

And a magical place called Havasupai:

Moving...again!

About 6 months ago, I moved from Portland, OR back to Chico, CA. Now I'm moving to Durham - the small town I lived in before moving to Portland. My life is cyclical at the moment; with the current of a whirlpool - the energy of a twister.
It will be a smaller place. I won't be able to have house shows with an open invitation, but I will be taking appointments to come by and see what I'm working on, with small groups. It's a new dimension, a new environment, and I'm real excited about it. I'm living on the grounds of Gale Vineyards. You heard me. A VINEYARD.
Yeah. I'm super stoked.
I'll keep you informed,and pictures to come within the next month.
Hope you are all having a wonderful day!

NEVER were truer words written.

Always and never are two words you should always remember never to use.

So...I have yet to stop painting.

Once I took off the pressure of deadlines, I've been back to the drawing table.
Expect to see some brand new work trickling in on the site, and for all of you that I owe commissions to...I'm working on those now. :)
If you have questions about prices of any of the artwork, please email me @ caitlinschwerin@yahoo.com.

Site Under Construction

My site will seem a bit jumbled for the next few days. I'm making a few changes with both the site situation and a few of my paintings.

February 14, 2007

::working on the website::

I apologize for any broken links, but I'm rebuilding the site with new work as it dries. All should be well by Thursday evening.

The Site will be down for a bit...

I am trying to fix it! Sorry.

Trying Something Different cont.

Working with the bird's eye view of Salt Lake City...And as usual, my ability to concentrate on just one is thwarted by my need to work on 4 or 5. This is another attempt to abstract the "manscaping" - this vinyl record shape, complete with grooves...and, as usual, just another gig to get the scarlet red involved...

And another to see what it would look like on a smaller scale:

And again, on an even smaller scale....

Trying Something Different

i'm starting with a canvas that has already presented many images. It has been painted over and over...and...over. I'm shooting for a final painting. But instead of white-washing it to start anew, I am going to paint into what is already there. See how that pans out. Here is the before picture...this has gauze on the bottom, which has proven to be difficult to paint over. Although I do like the effect, we'll see what happens when it is there, not for a particular purpose, but as an additional medium.

Continuation of the pair that wasn't there.

I've turned to pomegranetes. It is the perfect vehicle for this luscious red, and they are actually quite healthy for you. So, in the spirit of this beautiful fruit, I am drawing them, painting them, drinking them and eating them. My studio looks like a blood bath.
Not to say that I haven't been hammering out some progress on the two canvases. With the pomegranetes came a new background. A swirling of gusty winds meets dirt storms meets marble. I've gotten quite fond of it, and it is now my new thing. My other new thing is this appearance of a hide stretched out touching all sides of the canvas without any sort of main variable. It is how I've been feeling - skinned and stretched. Left out to dry. Such emotions can be so much more pretty when painted instead of felt. Pelt. How ironic.
Anyway, step two for the two. Here are where they are so far, starting with him and then her.
