"My style is representational. I mostly focus on realistic, with a little impressionism. When I have an idea for a piece, most of the time the specifications are inherent: each painting dictates what medium I will use, either watercolor, acrylics or pastels. What size, on what surface, even the title comes to me before the creation."
The artist of Zircon Productions gets ideas from various places. Nature, the environment, dreams, hearing a song, hearing or reading a Bible verse, her own active imagination have all been sources of inspiration for the completed works and numerous compositions "waiting in the wings."
Please browse the offerings here to find the piece that is right for you. If you don't see what you want, Kathi can be commissioned to paint a subject that is particularly dear to your heart.
Here is Kathi's latest work.
"Sunlit Path" by Kathi Fox
11" x 14" acrylic on canvas
"Sunlit Path" began as the demonstration painting during a Paint Party for children whom I was teaching. Instead of finishing it in the same colors and style as "Sunlit Forest", I changed the color scheme. A good number of years ago, I had saw a painting that I really liked, of a path going through a forest of greens and yellows. At the time, I was just starting out on my painting career, but I have always kept in mind of doing something similar.
I did use a combination of several magazine photographs as subject models. There was a point during creation that I didn't like how my forest was turning out. I decided that I needed to quit using the photos and rely on my sensibilities; how I thought it should be and what I would like. After I did that, the 11" x 14" acrylic on canvas came out much better. I had a frame that fit perfectly.
