Bainbridge Island artist Kathe Fraga lives in a 100 year old home by the sea. Take a peek at the first image below (behind her largest ever painting), and see how the tall windows in her studio let in such a gorgeous light. It both looks and sounds like a magical space to paint in. Her works are inspired by the natural world along with frescos in France-- with her own take on chinoiserie; all in all evoking old world elegance in a current style. The colors that she layers are exquisite-- and these works would hang well in either a grand mansion or a charming cottage. It's also easy to see why Swedish Medical Center just purchased 3 of her paintings. Here's a sampling of some of my favorite ones...

Kathe uses acrylic paint on frescoed canvas. At the end, she finishes them off with lacquer.
