I am a huge fan for everything that Kathryn Wiggins does. She’s a good friend of mine who lives in Jackson, Mississippi about five minutes away from our house. She is an amazing artist. She put this painting on etsy about a month ago and I flipped out. I still can’t stop looking at it. It reminds me of quilts and stained glass. And there is a lot of yellow warmth in there, so of course this would be a favorite of mine. I wanted to share it with you. Secretly I really wish my shop would just explode with sales so that I could buy this painting. ha! But I am such a fan of Kathryn’s work so I want her to continue painting. So please support her work and purchase one of her paintings on her etsy.
Description on “Great Day In The Mornin” • 40 inches x 40 inches • Oil and wax on linen • 2011 • Depth 1.5 inches (sides painted white) • Unframed but ready to hang, linen is stretched onto aluminum bars for a perfectly straight hang!
I think Kathryn Wiggins is brilliant artist. I love how she thinks and processes. Her work feels fresh and new, yet reminds you of the ancient past. I really got to know Kathryn’s work when I worked on her website. I learned so much from just talking with her about her work. And I really studied her paintings when I was renaming/resizing. It was such an honor to do. I plan on doing several posts of hers. So this first post is about her latest series “Home.” She knows that I LOVE these paintings. And she is selling them on etsy. (***Side note – get a painting now while she is producing a lower-priced originals. She is going to be famous. You heard it here on Little Things Studio. Yep. FAMOUS.)

AND for all of you lucky folks who live near Jackson, Mississippi, Kathryn and I are sharing a booth at an art festival Art on the Greens. You can find more details on the facebook event we created! It’s THIS weekend. And you’ll LOVE seeing her work in person. And if that wasn’t enough, you can meet her CUTE baby Harris!
This has been my favorite project since I’ve graduated. My friends Kathryn & John Wiggins asked me to do their baby announcement! I am so happy for them! They are some of the nicest people I know. I think the world of them. And I couldn’t be happier for them. Harris is the cutest baby.
The cards are 5×7 inches, printed on French Speckletone Starch White paper. And we used French’s Poptone gumdrop green for envelopes.
Kathryn is an amazing painter. Expect a post about her soon! You can view her work here. And do not pass up her online shop at etsy. I want to own every one of her paintings.
