Welcome My Gallery
"In everyday life I was usually bored and vexed by the things that people were always telling me I must do. Starting to paint I felt gloriously free, quite, and alone."
Henri Matisse.

"Quiet  Time"©
Gouache Opaque Watercolor
Kathy Robbins, Artist

This painting was inspired by a photograph supplied by one of Maury Kettle's Projects Page partcipants.  A group of us painted from the same photograph in our own styles.
So this was what I came up with....it turned out well enough that I gave it to my husbands mother and stepdad for Christmas last year.
Location:  Somewhere near Payson, AZ.

"The Three Bears"©
Plasteline Clay Sculpture
Kathy Robbins, Artists

 My first adventure into the clay world and I love it.  The bears were created from my imagination using plasteline clay.  At some point in time a mold and pour of some type of material will need to be made of this piece.  Otherwise it will stay as it is clay like.  I've started my next piece which will be of my Dad as a young man astride his favorite horse.

"Honeycreeper"©
Pastel On Mi-Tients Paper
Kathy Robbins, Artist

I was invited to join with other artists in an Online two hour paint session.  At the end of the two hours we stop, upload our painting image in to the forum and view and comment on each others work.  The group is called the Drawing & Sketching Forum, and  is part of Wet Canvas Website.  There were several images to choose from, and I chose this one because of the beautiful color of this bird and surrounding colors of the plants.

"Sunflower #1" ©
Gouache Opaque Watercolor
Kathy Robbins, Artist

A couple of summers ago I planted some sunflower seeds at the top of our hill.  To my surprise a whole row of them came popping up to the surface and prospered.  I photographed the whole lot with the intention of future painting material.  This is one of them I especially like the pose.

"Ghost Town Relic"©
Gouache Opaque Watercolor
Kathy Robbins, Artist

In August of 2000 my husband and I had an occasion to return to the old historic ghost town of Bodie.  Located in the Sierra Nevada high desert mountain range Bodie still stands defiant to this day.  There are many buildings and various relics strewn across the landscape amongst them this old rusting car.  I just knew it would make a wonderful painting.

"Pond Ducks" ©
Gouache Opaque Watercolor
Kathy Robbins, Artist

I came across these wonderful ducks one day while taking a break from a Sumi painting class.  They were just floating around in the pond waiting for me!  This painting is a composite of several photographs I took that day.

"Stern In At Tower Park Marina" ©
Gouache Opaque Watercolor
NFS
Kathy Robbins, Artist

My husband and I keep our boat "The Robbins Nest" berthed at a marina in the California Delta. We took part in a cruise to another marina with some of our boating friends. After the boats were all stern into the dock at Tower Park Marina. I set about taking photographs of the boats and the wonderful reflections in the water being produced by the boats.

"Mission Garden" ©
Gouache Opaque Watercolor
Sold
Kathy Robbins, Artist

"San Juan Bautista, California and in particular the garden at the mission was the inspiration for this painting.  My friend and painting partner Blanche Anderson, and I were strolling though the garden enjoying the color and sunlit sights. The music coming from the Sunday church services just added a wonderful joy to the garden.  Among other sights I was attracted to the hanging bell, and the bench that was so inviting.  I just knew that this scene would make a good painting. I  will always remember that day in the "Mission Garden."

"Mission San Juan Bautista"©
Gouache Opaque Watercolor
Kathy Robbins, Artist

"This painting is part of an on going Mission series, and in particular San Juan Bautista in California.  The adobe walls of the Mission and the gardens are especially interesting to me.  When standing in these surrounds it's hard to visualize how remote this Mission was at one time.  I have to feel even with it's remoteness it must have still been very beautiful as it continues to be now."

A little explanation when you see the wording  "Acrylic & Gouache" under a title.  It means that I started with one and ended with the other, it doesn't mean that I mixed them together.

"Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life."
