Art Comes Alive 2013 Exhibit Finalist

My painting, Blue Skies, was accepted into the Art Comes Alive 2013 Final Exhibit. They only accept the top 10% of all the entries, so I am extremely  honored.

Art Design Consultants holds an annual fine art contest & exhibit  for artists all over the nation. It is a such a wonderful opportunity for artists to be acknowledged for their talents, gain exposure and win awards and gallery contracts. I’ll be heading to Cincinnati on June 22 to attend the dinner and awards ceremony.  You can see a slideshow of images from last year’s exhibit.

While I was doing some spring cleaning, I rediscoved this piece. It was a wonderful find, tucked away in my portfolio, because I have been thinking of doing a native american/ desert collection for a while now.

New Art Courses

This week Karen will be starting 2 new art classes through the Naples Art Association at the Von Liebig Museum in Naples, Florida. The first course is Primal Art taught by Genie Kell. The Primal Art class will challenge its students to express their unique visions through traditional and non-traditional materials and methods.

The second course Karen will be taking is an advanced watercolor class, Beauty of Transparent Watercolor with instructor Patty Kane.  This class will focus on creating brilliant light patterns through layering transparencies, composition, and traditional watercolor techniques with an emphasis on color mixing.

New work coming soon!
