little communities...




With the earthquake happing early in the week my mind was completely fixed on the television watching the horror that was unfolding down south and not on the assignment for week 4 of Get your paint on.

After seeing and hearing about all that was happening in Christchurch I started thinking about communities coming together, helping each other, being there for each other.  And not just local community... I am completely amazed at the help that has come from all over the world to help the people of Christchurch.  

So these are my little communities coming together...

I love your painting. I recently visited NZ from UK and am heartbroken to see the damage and heartache caused by the earthquake to such a lovely place.

I just love the color palette you chose. It's so simple and yet so moving. I hope everyone you know is all right! You're a wonderful artist and I'm so happy I stumbled upon your blog.

Love the painting Katherine and your thoughts about community too. Sooner or later we will need each other and it's great if we can keep those bonds strong, even when things are not in crisis. So sad to see the devastation over there. Thinking of you and your fellow citizens!!
