One World One Heart

Welcome visitors, new and old! Hope everyone is thoroughly enjoying the One World One Heart Event. I know I am =)

My name is Kathryn. I am a spiritual soul who lives in paradise. I reside in sunny Florida with my hubby, 2 cats, and five birds. I like to walk on the beach, or in our local nature preserve. I love watching movies. But mostly, I LOVE to paint!...angels, fairies, mermaids, animals, birds, flowers, etc....almost anything.

My second favorite creative endeavor is fused glass work. I have a glass saw and a small kiln, and am slowly, but surely, teaching myself to make small glass pendants and suncatchers. To me, fusing is like painting with glass. The element of light creates exquisite colors. My mom bought me some Glassline paints that are made for fusing, so I am having fun experimenting with those now.

My door prize for the One World One Heart contest is (2) original Spring-themed paintings. You must be an active blogger to enter. Just leave a comment and your blog link below:

Two flowers, nestled together in a spring garden,
bring out the beauty in each other
"Tulips in Love", 4 x 6in Original Watercolor

This striking butterfly is a brilliant kaliedoscope in nature
"Stained Glass Butterfly", 4 x 6in
Original Acrylic Painting on
Heavyweight Watercolor Paper

Thanks so much for stopping by! Its nice to meet you =) Happy blogging and good luck!! Kathryn
