After many hours spent in the studio on bird paintings, these sunflowers were calling my name. So finally I acquiesced, and I loved every minute of painting these colorful flowers. This painting truly makes me happy, and every time I see it I am reminded that I must paint what inspires me!!

To see these paintngs, please stop by Anne Irwin Fine runs through Labor Day!
These were so much fun to paint! I really can't get enough of painting these pretty ladies. Many times my fashion pieces are born out of a need to design beautiful dresses, which satisfies the desire I once had of being a fashion designer.
The best part about designing these ensembles is that I don't have to figure out how to actually construct them!! I can dream away!

10x14" oil on panel
Artist: Kathryn Morris Trotter

My recent trip to Istanbul was filled with colorful inspiration from this "old world" city. These were merchants in a hidden courtyard at the Grand Bizarre. This scene evokes a sense of appreciation of how artisans were in times past. There was a sense of pride, attention to detail, and a thoughtfulness that has not been compromised in the old cities of Europe.

"New England Winter"

I could not resist painting this scene! First of all, I am obsessed with birds to put it mildly, and secondly, the colors of the snow were so yummy...the subtle lavenders, pinks, blues, and icy whites that are reflected after a heavy snowfall are quite heavenly.

"Yellow Dress"

"Yellow Dress" by Kathryn Morris Trotter
oil on canvas

I continue to be inspired by the elegance that women exude, particularly in the generations proceeding us. Curiosity of these women is evoked as I look at old photos of how women my age used to be..for instance, my grandmother in her prime. It was the way they dressed, how they carried themselves, and the roles they were most know for that makes them so captivating.

My inspiration and background in fashion design coupled with my affinity for anything vintage allows my painting to emerge with excitement as I live vicariously through these women.

"Lunch in Paris"

"Lunch in Paris" oil on canvas 20 x30
by Kathryn Trotter
Atlanta, Georgia

Inspired by the women of Paris...oh what would it be like if I were a Parisian woman? The sophistication and elegance of a French woman donned in her best at high noon strikes our curiosity to wonder...where is the woman going, what does she do all day, and what has life been like in her shoes?
