Pretty in Pink!

Acrylic painting of pink peonies on a purple background

The Richmond Branch is pleased to have our very own Catherine Flegg, as the last artist of the month, for 2017!

Catherine uses acrylic paint and mediums in her work.  One of her favorite tools is a 'palette knife'.  She enjoys the textures, and depth of colour she achieves when using it.  Artist's can make painting with a palette knife look easy, but it's not!  Catherine's results using this technique are beautiful!  The colour palette in this collection is bold and bright.   Catherine enjoys painting as a hobby, and has produced many visually stunning pieces.  

Her work will be on display at the Richmond Branch for the month of December.  Take some time during this busy month to stop in and have a look!
