Fragile atmosphere

One morning I heard a weather report during which the weatherman (Art Lake, for all you Rhode Islanders. For the rest of you, no, I am not making his name up...) said something unexpectedly poetic. He said "the atmosphere is very fragile today"...I'm not sure what that meant, but I liked it! I painted this on my lunch break.

NOT FOR NOTHING, BUT: I'm sorry that they rebuilt the interior stairs in the Providence Art Club. I loved the old wide wavy wooden stairs. I imagine they were the original 1880's treads, worn into smooth organic slabs by thousands of artist's footsteps.


  1. Kathy,

    I love 'Fragile Atmosphere'. How big is it? What type of paint?


  2. Thanks Birgit. It's on one of those postcard-sized watercolor pads, done in watercolor and gouache. Mr. Lake, a RI icon, has passed away since, into the fragile atmosphere.


I value your comments, please let me know what you think!
