The painting’s title, “August 14”, refers to National Creamsicle Day! Peaches and oranges are playfully combined with white and a hint of burnt sienna to create this warm, soft, complex abstract painting. Painted on wood panel with deep 2" painted edges, this piece is varnished, wired and ready to be hung without framing.

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.
