In Praise of Colors: A painter writes her memoir

Listen to the episode

Cat Balco is a painter, a painter writing a memoir. It’s shaping up to be about painting, but also about a lot of other things going on in her life. Cat, who teaches at Hartford Art School where I’m proud to say she taught me painting, was my inaugural guest on Open Studio, back in September of 2020, and since then a lot has happened in her life. She says she has a stubborn little muse inside her that’s calling her to write about it in memoir. Painting, writing – well, that speaks my language. I had to invite her back on the show to talk about it.

A few of Cat’s paintings:

Orion’s Belt, acrylic on canvas, 60″x72″, shown in Cat’s studio

Three Green Triangles, acrylic on canvas, 72″x72″,

Open Orange Triangles, acrylic on canvas, 40″x40″

Here’s a link to that inaugural chat:

You can find Cat’s work at her website and at her NYC gallery’s site
