Kate McCarthy

I seem to have created a tradition. Remember last year when I accidently bought this and then pretended it was for my birthday? Well I may have done it I've made an internet friend as part of the bargain!

To defend myself, this was meant to be. Last year I was away for another friends birthday and I came across a painting by Kate McCarthy. I loved it, but didn't buy it....then I went to buy it and got distracted by life. I thought about that painting a lot, and one day I saw a postcard with that very painting on it, you know on of those free postcards...and then I went to buy the painting and it was sold. I was sad about that.

About six months later, I tried to look online again, and I'm not sure how it happened but I stumbled across Kate on Facebook. One thing led to another and all of a sudden there is a very special painting made just for me. I'm sitting across from it now, and I can't stop loving it. Want to have a look?

And the other great thing? Kate is a super nice person, so generous, and an amazing talent. She shared some kind, personal, generous words with me, and I really like that in a gal. Fingers crossed one day we might meet in real life, but for now I have a bit of Kate in my lounge in the yellow house in the u.


  1. I am amazed that you can always find room for more art. I'm kind of jealous too. We should be diversifying out art a bit more here.

  2. Ooooohhhh. Looks great on the wall.
