Kathy--I like the way you think. Congratulations! This piece is wonderful and it talks. fave and voted

Kathy Braud replied:

Thanks Nava, I'm glad you understand my thoughts with a picture. I appreciate your congrats and promotions.

While having to ask my wife, a renowned watercolor artist, what Gouache was, and she explained it, it even makes this piece have more beauty and meaning to us unskilled artists! I saw as she pointed out the translucency of the watercolor as a contrast to the gouache, which was a true learning experience. Your work with both mediums has turned this old farmer, with his unique looks into a masterpiece of beautiful artwork. I am amazed at the beauty behind this and the description that accompanied this awesome painting. Thanks much for sharing, Kathy! Love it! fave and vote

Kathy Braud replied:

Thanks for sharing the gouache story with all, Randy! Adding white to make pastel colors really expands the variety of colors available to artists too!

Forgot to mention, congratulations on being selected as one of this week's artists of the week in the Wisconsin Flowers and Scenery group!

Kathy Braud replied:

Thanks for the congrats, Penny, I am so glad you stopped to visit my work.

Artist's Description

A wonderful old Minnesota farmer was sitting in the kitchen reading the paper. After I captured a photo, I also came to realize the camera was reading him. My attention was caught by a time worn face, hard working hands and his comfortable overhaul working clothes in a sun filled room. This painting received a purchase award at a college community exhibition. He is also my uncle and a wonderful man.
