Katherine Fraser lives in Philadelphia, PA. Her work has been featured in a number of exhibitions around the country. She says: "Life often strikes me as a string of moments, like a series of film stills, in which we observe ourselves. I paint people experiencing these moments of profound self-awareness and growth; when the rest of the world drops away and we are left bare. My paintings have the visceral quality of memories or dreams, when the image is reduced to the essential, and the mood is what draws your focus, not the specific details. My subject matter comes from my own memories and experiences that feel in some way universal. I have found that certain kinds of settings tend to lead people inward, and to me the rural landscape is a nursery for the soul. My memories of growing up in Maine are a great source of inspiration. Though my subjects usually stand alone, I am less interested in loneliness than in the way being alone makes us feel most alive and connected to our true nature."

Katherine Frasier just loves flamingos! She believes tere's something simultaneously majestic and slightly awkward about them, like nature had a little fun in designing them. The painting is colorful and expressive, with really splashy brushwork, and bright, saturated hues. She loves the delicate reflections in the water, and the sense of movement in the wings. Considering how dark many of her other paintings are, when working on this piece she found it refreshing to be striving to achieve just the right shades of hot pink!
