This oil painting pictures a child riding on a bunny. "The Journey Awaits" explores memories of childhood and our search for that which we believe will make us happy.  The carrot represents that which we are always in pursuit of but it always just slightly out of reach. The mood and atmosphere of the landscape and scene is somber and reflective, symbolizing the sadness, loss of one's innocence, and any pain associated with life as we look back.

Getting to Know Kat

Kat Silver’s surrealist paintings project something whimsical and enticing within their dream-like plots. They expose the inner conflicts in Kat’s life, which are revealed through the imagery of her dreams and the symbolism encountered in her daily life. These conflicts are universal, demonstrating an obsession with time, choice, and fate. The image of the rabbit has become an important symbol and signature in Kat’s work. For her, the rabbit represents power and taking control of one’s life. The sweet, confident groups of rabbits surround the lost, faceless characters in her paintings. We may not know where we are going, but we have guides along the way if we look for them.
