Age-Old Beauty Reigns in Kathe Fraga's Paintings..

 
For most of us on this side of the pond, old things are relatively new.
An old farmhouse is one that has been around a hundred years...
When you visit Europe, the thing that strikes most westerners is being immersed in such a rich history.
Every surface and item are truly "old",  reaching back many centuries, ages even. 



Antiques and time worn objects give your home character, 
each piece unique, with it's own secrets and tales..
Art and textiles, however, can be very costly, and may not be within most peoples reach.

Enter the work of Kathe Fraga.
Acrylic and ink on frescoed canvas, each piece offers the beauty of an aged fresco panel.
Kathe has mastered a delicate Chinoiserie style, incorperating birds, flowers, vines and leaves into art that will take you away to the streets of Paris..

These are beautiful! We use to live in France and somehow they do seem to radiate that aura I remember...

The work is wonderful, and so is the artist - Kathe went out of her way to send me a hand-painted thank you for this post - can you imagine? How lucky am I...
