Vestiges -Catherine Eaton Skinner

Wow…

What amazes and thrills me is the evolution of an artist.

Say Catherine Eaton Skinner.

She started out as a scientific illustrater, add painter, add printmaker, add glassworker, add photographer, and a bit of Eastern religion, lover of animals and nature. Add into the mix, a very thoughtful, kind and generous woman, a mom, a grandmother, a sister and a wife. And the picture begins to focus.

This show of mixed media encaustic paintings represents a return to the landscape, but perhaps as a Trace, or a Vestige.  A passage.

We are privledged to see.

About ruthoffen

Created by, Ruth Offen the founder/director of WaterWorks Gallery, a gallery opened in 1985 to showcase contemporary artists and jewellers that live and work in the Pacific Northwest. The gallery is on an San Juan Island in the Salish Sea.[ North Puget Sound] Pretty amazing place. While continuing to curate the gallery after 33 years, I'm decided to spend more time enjoying life by traveling, creating art with photography and dancing tango. Over many decades of amassing a personal art collection, now the process of downsizing is becoming a reality. How do we have more with less? Staying true to the motto, unencumbered by our possessions and not burdening our children with our stuff. This next process will take patience and courage.
