Red Mountain

Red Mountain, Prints Available

Red Mountain, Original Acrylic by Kim Nelson

 

who doesn’t love red?

I love red in the dining room. Have you ever noticed that lots of traditional or continental restaurants have red walls, seating or art? Red makes us hungry, I suppose; but it also makes us happy and conversational. 

Speaking of conversations

I recently went to a community dinner at Old Vine Cafe located in The Camp in Orange County, California where bold pieces by local artists hung on the walls, great food came out in six courses and informative conversations flowed. We talked about art, travel, food and wine and life in an engaged community. If you have a chance to attend a community or wine dinner, DO IT! You’ll be glad you did. And maybe you’ll see some good local art and enjoy a lively conversation.

and local art…

The original Red Mountain is not available, but you can order prints in every size and shape from my shop. And if you want to see more, follow me on Instagram where I post daily.

Consider Monet

Consider Monet. 

He painted his entire adult life. As he aged, his eyesight failed, but he continued to paint despite a condition that shut down the creative output of many of his peers. In fact, his vision was terribly impaired when he painted his most famous works. He persisted. 

This morning, I considered Monet when I sat down with my practice journal. I vow to persist.
