I’m very grateful for the continued strong support of my art, and want to say a big “Thank You!” to all the collectors, both recent and those who go back with me a few years. (I’ve been painting full-time since 2010, so that’s quite a list!) Among the remarkable volume of paintings sold this last month, here is a look at a few of them which were favorites, either of mine, or of the viewers on social media. (below)

Thanks to all of you! I’d love to hear from you, and it would be especially wonderful to see photos of my paintings in their special place in your home. You can send a photo directly to my email address at karin@knelsonart.com.

I hope you’re all having a great summer and staying cool!!!

Pink again.

This tree is on a corner we pass on the way to LaFontsee Galleries (where I am represented in Grand Rapids and Douglas). I’m so glad I was able to capture a photo of it.

I don’t know how many expressions will follow before I have fulfilled this … this thing that has overtaken me this spring. Maybe once the blossoms have all fallen?

The white blossoms on the dogwood trees in our yard are still hanging on. The leaves are starting to crowd them out though. Oh, how I love the delicate dogwood blossoms.

Not to be Rushed

LG-Untitled
Not to be Rushed – 36″ x 36″ acrylic on canvas. Available.

I went through many phases in this painting, thinking it was complete, even posting it on my Facebook page, only to realize after a couple of days, that it wasn’t setting right with me. I would then go after it again.

It’s finally “there” for me. The title is therefore not only a reference to a slow Sunday drive in the country which has no need to be rushed; but also a reminder that you can’t rush the completion of certain expressions of art.

Colors of Spring

LG-Colors of Spring
Colors of Spring – 48″x48″ acrylic on canvas. Available.

The beautiful pastels of blossoming trees have impacted me more this spring than ever before. This is my second painting of them, and maybe not my last.

Apparently, collectors of my art enjoy skies as much as I do, so I continue to delve into this limitless subject. It’s a new exploration with each new sky. I find endless fascination in the many different settings, lighting conditions, color combinations, moods… .

If any of these works (or the other pieces on my Available Paintings page) strike a chord with you, and you’d like to surround yourself with a peaceful trip to the lake or country by adding an original piece of art to your home, feel free to contact me through the Contact tab, or call me directly at 616-723-6600 with any questions.

I hope you enjoy the latest paintings to come off the “easel.” (Actually, I don’t use easels anymore; for any artists out there who paint on large canvases and want to contact me for more information about how I paint against the wall, I have a most wonderful set-up now for the past number of months, and it has greatly improved my productivity and organization.)

Many blessings, friends!
