Now that I have reached the age where I can be called a pensioner it’s time to spread my unencumbered wings and fly. A time to play my role in this illusion we call life and due my part in salvation. My chosen role is to bring spiritual communications into the world of time through abstract paintings .And what a wonderous role it is to merely listen and with great joy slap paint on what ever gets in the way. To enable miracles to unfold What more could one ask for? No more to agonize over highlights ,shadows and contrast But rather to say “Thy will be done Let’s paint” So when you look at one of my images quiet your mind and receive the message that’s in it for you at that moment Let them open your mind to receive from above I wish you peace.

Thank You my family. Please look around and see what life has for you.
Mike – kinda old and gray with things hanging and stuff about like a gray old cypress tree.
Light, airy and turquoise – that’s Kathy Golden’s stunning seascapes. Her whimsical approach to oil painting sets the stage for painting beyond what the eye can see.
Kathy studied art at Trinity University and the University of Houston. She is an active member of the Art League of Fort Bend, where she has studied with Reg Stark for several years. His technique for painting rocks and water, emphasizing the contrast between light and dark, is one that she follows in her home studio. She has taken workshops with Susan Sheets, Nellie Kress, and Kiko and Duncan.
Kathy’s painting Decaf placed second at a convention of Lone Star Art Guild. Her work is in numerous collections, and can be seen at the Fifth Street Gallery in Rosenberg, Texas.
