Kathleen Mahin is a soft pastel portrait I did of a former student. I spent a few years teaching private art lessons to local children and adults and Kathleen and her sister Grace both took lessons from me. I enjoyed teaching those children and Kathleen was a sweet student. Her parents wanted portraits of both girls for them to enjoy while young and then take them with them.
I like to do both oil and pastel portraits and I have developed a system that ensures the patron will be happy with the results. I make a one color under portrait and then check with the patron regarding the likeness. Then I add all the colored layers and again check with the patron in case there is something they are not quite satisfied with. So far, I have had complete success with my commissions and would like to do more now that I have retired from teaching.
My paintings have been seen throughout the United States in national, international, and group shows. I have won numerous awards, including awards from Dorothy Gillespie, May Stevens, Frank Webb, and Daniel Greene.
My best-selling print, "Reaching Out", was selected from over three million works of art on Fine Art America to be on the set of The Mindy Project and I appeared with my artwork on The Hour of Joy on FoxTV out of Roanoke on March 10th 2013 episode 5.
I live to paint and it is important to me to find homes for all of my creations. I have originals and prints in twenty-one states, Canada, Germany, and Australia. I want to cover the world with my art. Be sure to check out my YouTubes. Here is the address for my Beautiful Nude Series. http://youtu.be/vOyjIZ__lq4
