Painting of the Day, February 1, 2012

By Donna Poulton

Kate Starling, Lambing Season, oil, 24 x 36 in. Credit: Plein air painting is a natural extension of Kate Starling’s lifelong desire to create as much of an outdoor life as possible. Today Starling is a full time artist. Her husband, Jim, constructed a large easel that sits on the back of her 1985 Land Cruiser. This allows her to paint outside and to work on views around her home near Zion National Park. She is not interested in the grand views so much as “slice of life” views of the canyon; arroyos, washes, cacti on a hillside, a stand of aspen, a cluster of boulders or an abandoned car or lambs finding their way around rocks.
