Broken Heart Pictures Series

This is one of several paintings and prints in the Broken Heart Pictures series. To me, the grid of hearts represents a sort of story quilt. Each heart, broken or whole, represents an important part of the person's story. Making the paintings, I gave some thought to my own broken hearted times.

The actual painting of the hearts was spontaneous. My hope is that the story of these hearts will resonate for you too. It seems likely that we each have a story of our heart breaking and healing, over and over.

Broken Heart Pictures are ready to mat and frame:

I ship paintings on paper unmatted and unframed to save you shipping costs. The 9x12" paintings are a standard size, fitting a 12x16" mat. So once framed, the Broken Heart pictures are medium sized artwork.

Choosing a different mat color and frame will dramatically change the painting:

Because the 12x16" mat is a standard size, matting and framing will be relatively inexpensive.

You can see the watercolor and gouache effect. All the paint is actually top quality fluid acrylic paint.

Materials used for the original Broken Heart Pictures paintings:

I used good quality watercolor paper blocks for the paper, mostly Strathmore 160 lb. The paint is Golden fluid and air brush acrylics, for a watercolor and gouache effect with excellent lightfastness. These paintings should last many years with good framing and care.

"Broken Hearts"

This is one of my favorites. I'm saving the original painting to use as part of a mixed media vessel sculpture. Archival 8x10" prints of the original painting are available, however, for $12 plus $4 shipping.

Please bookmark this page as a Favorite, as I'll be adding at least two more paintings and prints in the Broken Hearts series.

Prints, like the paintings on paper, are shipped unmatted and unframed.

This saves you money in shipping. It also lets you select the mat and frame you prefer. Since the painting and print sizes are standard, this is easy and inexpensive.

These prints will last well.

I use the finest art materials and archival techniques available so your purchase will last for generations.

To ensure high quality, I make these giclee prints myself with Epson Durabrite ink on acid-free Epson matte heavyweight paper. This combination of ink and paper has been well tested - officially estimated to last 72 years without significant fading.

As with any work of art, it's best to display it away from direct sunlight.

Certificates of Authenticity

Each painting and print is signed and dated. A signed Certificate of Authenticity is also shipped with each painting and print. This certifies that the work was done personally by me - Catherine Jo Morgan, the artist. Prices are left out so you can include the COA with the artwork if you give it as a gift.

"WOW!! This is an up and coming artist! Beautiful painting!"

"You are a wonderfully vibrant artist."

"Your work is wonderful and speaks to me."

"I love your art work."

"Thrilled with my painting! Fast delivery too. Painting even better than photo."


I draw, paint and make vessel sculptures in my studio in the woods of northeast Georgia, in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. I live in a rustic cabin I built with my partner in 1982. After an earlier career as a psychologist, I became a fulltime artist-blacksmith in 1985. Since 1990, I've specialized in iron and mixed media vessel sculptures. My drawings and paintings are usually studies for these sculptures. I draw my inspiration from walks in the woods, especially hikes into wilderness areas.

My work is in private collections across the United States. I've participated in invitational shows, including a show of iron bowls at Georgia Southern University in 1996. I've also taught blacksmithing and metal sculpture. In 1990 I was a featured demonstrator at the national blacksmithing conference in Alfred, New York. My bowls are also featured in Dona Meilach's book, Contemporary Ironwork.
