All of the warm colors in this piece were layered repeatedly throughout the process of painting, weaving a rich effect of mystery and impact. This piece is on a cradled wood panel and the painting continues around the sides. It comes ready to hang.

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.
