The earth tones in this piece are layered translucently for radiance and depth. This creates a surface of rich, subtle complexity. Plenty of texture enlivens the surface.

This painting is created on seven wood panels, each 48x6 inches. Hung together with 1 inch spacing between each panel, the painting measures 48x48 inches. The colors on the face of each panel continue around the 2 inch deep edges making this painting 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.
