Kate Bruce's Woodland Animals welcomes visitors to the Ogden Nature Center

It all started with an idea for the painting that was commissioned by the Ogden Nature Center for their annual holiday boutique. How about some woodsy animals? Followed by, how about a few more of species that are found on the Nature Center property? That is how one painting for a socially distanced invite became Kate's woodland animal series.

The squirrel, horned owl and deer are all found at the Ogden Nature Center, perhaps not with garland and berries on their crowns. These banners will hang annually from November to April. The original paintings were also purchased by the Ogden Nature Center for auction at a later date, when social gathering is again part of our lives. This marks a milestone in the Kate Bruce collection, with it being her first permanent art installation.

Kate always feels it is an honor to be commissioned to paint a piece. When the Ogden Nature Center decided that they wanted to have the woodland animal series greet visitors to the grounds Kate could not have been more thrilled! The timeline to complete the paintings was not so exciting with only two weeks to complete three paintings that are 12x36". That size was needed to ensure the scanning of the images would provide enough detail for 3x9 foot high banners. Needless to say that is not much time even for an artist as gifted as Kate.
