Kathryn Riedinger                back to gallery artists

I have recently had the good fortune to live abroad which has filled my head and heart with images of people and place. Old and new. I am fascinated with capturing the light and how it affects shape, color and mood.

My oil paintings are a reflection of my experiences, many completed en plein air, in the world. I enjoy capturing moments in everyday life on city streets as well as those of hills, trees, water and sky.

Kathryn is an experienced plein air painter now living in Ketchum, Idaho, with her husband and three teenagers. Many larger studio pieces are derived from the studies done on location, along with photographs taken for reference. Living in Paris for one year gave her the opportunity to travel throughout Europe and attend workshops in France and Italy. She has been working on a new series of studio pieces from her travels which include figurative and urban scenes, as well as landscape which will be presented at Framed Image in May 2010 in two-person show.

Kathryn’s style is impressionistic and works primarily in oils. Her work has been included in shows in Denver, Santa Fe and Dallas.

Kathryn has found her passion in oil painting landscapes in an impressionistic, yet realistic style. Although primarily a western landscape painter, figurative, urban and coastal scenes are often subjects she loves to paint.

Kathryn and her husband, Kirk, are raising three children in Denver, Colorado where she is able to look out her window for material. Within a three hour drive, she can set up the easel to paint “en plein air” at some of the most beautiful spots in the country. Most of her larger studio pieces are derived from the smaller studies done on location.

Throughout the year, Kathryn travels to beautiful sites from Rocky Mountain National Park to the Cuchara River to capture these scenes in paint. She has also painted from her travels abroad to Italy, Greece and France.
