A Word from the Author
“I have always beenfascinated with the architecture of old homes, and I love to include quaint cottages and antique storefronts in my paintings. A little house or cottage in a landscape becomes the focal point-what the viewer’s eye is drawn to. There are so many types of homes that enhance our paintings-from rustic, early European bungalows to fancy Victorian cottages.” -Kerry Trout
About the Author Kerry is a self-taught artist who has been painting since she was a child. She is the author of four North Light Books: Handpainting Your Furniture, From Flea Market to Fabulous, Decorative Mini Murals You Can Paint and Handpainted Gift s for All Occasions. From her Indiana studio, she paints wall murals on canvas, creates one-of-a-kind furniture and teaches painting classes. Kerry considers the highlight of her career to be having her painted ornament chosen for the 2003 White House Christmas Tree, and getting a personal invitation to go there and be honored by First Lady Laura Bush.
Kerry developed Liquid Shadow©, the first product of its kind for decorative painting. Liquid Shadow© is a water-based medium that enables painters to easily paint cast shadows and to deepen shading. It was awarded “New Product of the Year” in 2003 by the Society of Decorative Painters, and is fast becoming a must-have for artists.
