Katherine has a deep connection with this painting as it serves as a poignant reminder of our vulnerability. While Katherine did not have a specific location in mind during its creation, it emanates a sense of Western Canada. The background features muted mountains and trees, evoking a fog-like atmosphere. The prominent spruce tree at the center is adorned in a lovely periwinkle blue, exuding strength and hopefulness.
One of the standout aspects is the irregular shapes of the rocks, slowly revealing themselves as the spring season unfolds. The snow present in the painting acts as a protective layer, symbolizing the early stages of spring. As an artist, Katherine takes great pleasure in working on large canvases, and this particular piece held even greater significance for her due to a recent health scare she had experienced just four days prior.
Katherine bestowed the title "A New Beginning" upon this painting, as it encapsulates the essence and momentum of all that followed.
Framed in 'Michelangelo' espresso-coloured 2" wood frame.
