In this powerful image the heat of fire explodes in color from its center in oranges and and rust and smokey grays. The piece was created in acrylic on canvas. The colors on the face of the painting continue around the deep 1.5" edges making this painting ready to be hung without framing. It has been varnished and wired.

Getting to Know Karen

Karen’s abstract paintings are best described as an exploration in color. Often monochromatic, her work is a meditative and serene improvisation in the movement and depth of paint. Whether executed in earthy shades or vibrant tones, each painting evokes a different mood for the viewer’s contemplation. Karen’s body of work gives a gentle nod to the Color Field movement of the 20th Century, grounding her portfolio solidly within the evolving story of contemporary art.
