Field and Sky 4, a 36″ x 48″ acrylic on canvas. Available.

In order to better absorb the textures and character of such a large painting (this is a 36″ x 48″), I hope you’ll enjoy the close-ups below.

I’ve enjoyed having this on my walls for a couple weeks, and now it is destined to be delivered to one of the galleries that represent me.

Happy Spring,

Karin

When a painting paints itself

Untitled #521, a 36″ x 36″ acrylic on canvas. Available.

Between finishing up a few gallery commissions, and my husband recently having major back surgery, not many new available paintings have come out of the studio in the last month.  It was deeply satisfying then, when this piece basically painted itself. As my fellow artists know, it doesn’t always happen that way!

Hope

Hope, 36″x36″ acrylic on canvas. Available.

 

Winter’s pains shall not last forever.

Hope of new life

hums its melodies.

Vibrations, silent at first,

crescendo steadily 

into a boisterous chorus of praise.

New Series: Flowers with a twist!!

I don’t often paint still life scenes, although early in my painting days (2009-2011) I painted a LOT of pears! So this was really exciting to depict flowers with a new approach. Each of the paintings below began with a foundation of bright primary colors. As the subsequent layers were added, some of the bright backgrounds and other layers were allowed to show through.

The two pink paintings would make great companions, as would the two green flowers. (The pinks appear to not have the same colored background, but that’s a photo issue; they’re actually extremely compatible.)

Pink Poinsettia, 20″ x 16″ acrylic on canvas. Available.
Pink Rose, 20″ x 16 acrylic on canvas. Available.
Green Mum, 24″ x 20″ acrylic on canvas. Available.
Green Hydrangea, 24″ x 20″ acrylic on canvas. Available.
Single Tulip, 20″ x 16″ acrylic on canvas. Available.

I hope you enjoy this series; I’d love to hear what you think about them. Thanks for following me!
