#Watercolor #detail of an old series inspired by a trip down the #RioDulce in #Guatemala. I relied on #WinsorNewton #GreenGold for this painting and it is still a go to green for me.  #isacattostudio #watercolorwednesday #winsorandnewton #winsorandnewtonwatercolors

When the Obamas moved into the White House, I painted this small painting and sent it to #FLOTUS. I had never sent a painting to someone famous out of the blue before, but she was an inspiration and I was excited for a better America.  I still think she is a spectacular woman and I have enjoyed watching her voice get even stronger over the years. Looking forward to her next move.  And yes, I did get a thank you note!

I am a poetry junkie, and the great poets are a constant source of inspiration and illumination for a broad swath of artists, me included. This is one of the studies I did for a much bigger painting inspired by a classic -- #PabloNeruda's #SonnetXVII. When I was pregnant with my first child this poem resonated in an entirely different way — I felt it touched on that unique feeling of prenatal love —especially in this stanza: I love you without knowing how...

I did a show on the elements - earth, fire, air and water -  a few years ago and this painting did not find a home, so came back to hang in our front entry.  It was inspired by the tale of Prometheus, the fabled keeper of the flame and champion of humanity. I am thinking of posting this on Etsy. What do you all think?  #IsaCattoStudio #Prometheus #watercolor #watercolorwednesday #art #artist #workonpaper #coloradoartist #colorado  UPDATEI decided to go ahead and list "Prometheus" on Etsy…

It's nine degrees this a.m., but I'm thinking that #spring is around the corner.     This #watercolor is a study for a series I did on the myth of Persephone and Demeter. #Persephone was kidnapped by #Hades, the God of the underworld, and subsequently vanished from the earth. Her mother, Demeter, the goddess of the harvest, was wild with grief and neglected her duties, plunging the world into hunger. She roamed the earth searching for her daughter and eventually found her...cont'd at link

Wildfires are a deadly constant in the West and climate change will sweep many more our way. This painting commemorates one of Colorado’s worst: the devastating Hayman fire of 2002. It consumed 137,760 acres and the lives of 5 firefighters.     #IsaCattoStudio #watercolor #contemporaryart #art #artist  #colorado #woodycreek #holidaygiftidea #etsyartist #holidaygift #uniquegiftideas

Just listed--one available! ______________________________ #IsaCattoStudio #ocean #mythology #contemporaryart #inspirationiseverywhere #watercolor #artcollector #sennelier #WinsorNewton. #archespaper

The light is shifting in the mountains and the summer is coming to a close. I painted this watercolor years ago, inspired by the seasonal transition. Contemplating bringing it back as a print edition, what do you think?  #isacattostudio #watercolorartist #contemporaryart #changingseasons

This painting, #Neriad, was inspired by washed up #seaweed forms on the beach on #CumberlandIsland, GA which is one of my favorite places on Earth. I have just made it into an edition of 10 prints with #JonathanSinger.   The prints arrive Friday the 27th and will not be available online until then, but please email me at isacattostudio@gmail.com if you are interested in one.  #IsaCattoStudio #watercolor #watercolorwednesday #painting #printedition #contemporaryart #art #artist  #colorado

This painting is called #Sanctuary — a theme that comes up again and again in my work. The notion of sanctuary is so individual —for me it is a place of #peace, #love and #safety. I find it in the #wilderness, in my #gardens, #reading, #walking, in my immediate family (husband, children and dogs) and always, always in #creativeprocess — #painting and #writing.  What is your sanctuary?    #IsaCattoStudio #watercolor #contemporaryart #artist #colorado #supporart
