...a commissioned portrait

I made this commissioned piece a while ago and it was such fun to paint the portrait of this beautiful cat Amelia.

"Queen Amelia's tea party"
...and beautifully framed and hung in my client's home :)

something new...

Finally spring is definitely here with it's warm days, spring showers and blooming flowers! :)
So nice to see nature's awakening and I'm finding new inspirations. I've started working on a series of butterfly watercolours... these are the first ones I've painted.

It's been a long break here again....but between holidays and snow storms,
busy work and family time I try my best to find time to create.

I really enjoy making these pendants, they are mini wearable art pieces..and one of a kind!
There are more in the making for my next art show, the Handmade Market that's coming up in May.

So much work to do...and I'm so excited!

And I'm soooo done with winter....I hope spring will get here soon!

Have a lovely weekend!

It's fall again... favourite time of the year! 
I absolutely love fall! All the colours, the misty mornings and falling leaves. The best season to go for hikes, unless it's raining..but then I get to stay in and create. :)

Well, it's been a while again I've posted new things here. Summer seems just rushed by me and somehow my blog got neglected between work and chasing after a toddler. Let's just say 24 hours a day hardly gives enough time to catch up on everything. At least that's how my life feels right now.

Anyhow, I have some new works to show you that I haven't posted yet.

"King Racoon"
"The Hunter" (a Birthday present for a little boy)

Also, I'm on Instagram, please follow me there at artbykatalin

Have a wondeful weekend all!

IF: myth...of the Turul madar

A little late submission ...but I really wanted to do one of the symbols of my country of origin, Hungary.
The Turul is the most important bird in the origin myth of the Magyarok (Hungarian people).
(please read more about the legend of the turul at above link)

Introducing.... beautiful third baby bundle of joy...Kiana...she was born 6 months ago.....
....can't believe how fast time flies!

Summer's come and gone...I know this post is looong overdue! So finally I decided that I need to squeeze in some time to do this posting... between feedings and diaper changes... walks to the park...and cooking and cleaning... and giggling and playing...and really gets busy sometimes. But I learned to be patient 'cause I know time will come when I can get back to my 'old' routine...and on those days I will be missing these precious moments with my baby. So I just try and cherish every moment now....I know she'll grow up fast...
...just like her older sisters did. :)

On the creative side...I'm getting ready for arts & craft shows for the fall. There are new things I'm working on...So please stay tuned and check back in sometimes...posts will come!

Happy September! :)

I'M BACK!....

After almost 7 months absence......where the time flies?
Sorry dear blog followers for neglecting my blog for so long. My life just got a busy turn...and it's hard to squeeze in time to write up a post here when there's so much other things to do.
Well I'm back again..and hoping to post more often.
I missed you all!

I have a lot to share let's start with the most important news...I'M EXPECTING A BABY and I feel so blessed to experience pregnancy with all its ups and downs again! I'm very excited and happy and hardly can wait to meet her/him at the end of February! :)
I can imagine I will be busy than ever but I'm hoping I can manage my time wisely and have the chance to spend some time with creative work too. I'm so inspired and have so many ideas....

In my long months of absence....I've been working on new paintings..attended art shows and I've been even featured on my wonderful artist friend's blog: Eat Drink Paint   go check it out and see Kim's work...she is a very talented and amazing artist!

Well, with the Holiday Season just in the corner I thought I show you this painting first that I've done recently for an art show.

Stripes & Stars

See you soon! :)

The Raven's Song....

.......that someone else listens to now, as this painting got sold at the HandMade Market show. It was inspired by this song that I was listening to while painting it.

Sometimes I get more attached to one painting then others but  I especially miss this one, because I even forgot to take a proper picture of it. :( 
 It was hard to let go, but I'm glad it found someone who felt connected with it as much as I did. :)
