    Looks like a “parlor” scene. Can you imagine the great conversations that developed sitting on that lovely sofa?? It could be like a travel back in time…. Beautiful!

    Wasatch Back Artists Rock! I’ve bought from them and I’ve won from them…so I’m probably ineligible! They still rock.

    I just love your style of painting. Somehow it always brings up warm feelings of a homey nature. I see this painting as a child who might be visiting Grandma’s house; there is nothing superfluous or distracting to interrupt a child’s daydreams. Love it!

  15. Rebecca Flores says:

    It is such a delight to see your beautiful artwork. What fun….

    I wish I was up there to paint with you….I was raised in the Wasatch Mt. area. My family is all around that area.

    Thank you for keeping me up dated.

  26. Lisa says:

    Love it. Everything you do is so fun.

    I love looking at the Bountiful Temple painting you did for us. It’s right next to my bed on my nightstand.

  27. Nancy Jones says:

    I love your painting Katrina – I think it is time for me to win!!! The green couch looks quite a bit like the one I grew up w/on lst Ave. in SLC…only it was fushia — same shape tho. I loved that couch (it was velvet – think about it – fushia velvet) Now my nephew has it and has had it recovered. I am going to go visit it soon to renew my acquaintance.

    Good work you are doing.

    Love, Nancy J.

  28. Karen R says:

    Wonderful nesting painting. Curl up in the space.

  29. Jenn Cano says:

    I really enjoy the simplicity of this painting, yet the complexity of emotions I get when I look at it. I can’t help but wonder how soft the inviting green settee looks and what would the area beneath the settee feel like to my bare feet. Is it smooth soft stones or a warm, soft rug? And the red basket with a bit of Asian flare… what would it hold?? A receptacle for wet umbrellas, magazines, or unwanted trash… and the simplicity of the art on the wall is beautiful. The mirror scrolls with the couch yet the rest of the art reflects the freshness of the room. And the old rustic lamp finishes it off… well done my lady…. well done! 🙂

    I have this sofa!! It belonged to my girlfriend’s Italian grandmother. It was upholstered in green horsehair velvet. My girlfriend inheirited it but after nearly 20 years of living with it, she was going to “bring it to the curb”. I had always loved this sofa, the form so full of soft curves. So I “saved” it. I tracked down real horsehair velvet in an old Waldwick, NJ upholstrey factory and had Mr. Scheruti, a lovley old Italian gentleman, reupholster it. Today it sits in our bedroom but in a few months will move to a place of honor we had built into our hose just for it.

    I am so glad you shared your wonderful painting with us and that some one else loved an old sofa.

      How did I miss your lovely sofa last time I was there? I definitely need to come take photos of your chairs and green sofa to paint. Hope to see you soon Anita and hope your Summer trip was wonderful!

  31. You are the best painter EVER! Love ya!

  32. Meredith says:

    For Nancy’s sake pick me! Thanks for emailing me the link – I’ll be sure to check back often.

  33. Maresa says:

    Nice work Treens! I want that couch or the painting in my house someday! 🙂

  34. Robin says:

    Sure wish I would have checked my email a week ago. Late to comment or not, I agree with the Grandma’s house comment above. That’s exactly what I felt when I first saw this painting. A wonderland for children, a place they never want to leave, where they can curl up and feel as comfortable as they would in their own home, while away from home, enveloped in unconditional love and acceptance. Masterfully captured emotions — comfort, love, and acceptance. Kudos Katrina.
