Mini Monday: Tapestry316

Kathleen shows her beauty through her art, love of nature, and love of God. When you view her beautiful paintings in her shop:, you will see how she has managed to combine all of these attributes into her life and her paintings. She also calls on her many memories of the past as inspirations.

I am in awe of the perfection of each horse she has painted. My close friend works in a barn and owns a quarter horse, so I have come to know the beauty and the distinction of each breed which she captures in her many different paintings of horses. As Kathleen says, “I have loved art as long as I have loved horses.” A quote from her profile, says a lot about the person she is, “May all your days be filled with wonderful moments that become beautiful memories’!

Living in the country, with her two horses, Kathleen raised her daughter; and now has two little grandchildren (both girls) and is presently awaiting the adoption of her third little grandchild.

Being in the country surrounded by nature’s beauty, she is also inspired by all of God’s hand in the creation of life and nature. Her many painting’s of horses, and animals are offset by the beauty of her other paintings such as the Clouds, and “Moonrise”. Kathleen also does sketching; I particularly like her sketch of the little girl.

Finally, Kathleen leaves us with this scripture from the Bible:
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8

Every now and then one meets a person so internally beautiful that one's jaw drops in awe and envy. Kathleen is one of those people. Her blog is uplifting, and her artwork skilled and gorgeous. All the animals on her land seem so happy and content; it is beautiful to behold. I am sure that many lives - human and animal - would be poorer without her.
The world could use a few more million people like Kathleen.
