There are 10+ layers of acrylic paint, washes, glazes and pastel which give the piece depth and interest. The Sacramento Delta is not far from where I live and has an influence on my artwork.
This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges. It comes varnished and ready to hang.
Karen Hale has been a professional artist for over 45 years. Her father was a commercial artist and furniture maker who encouraged her creativity at an early age. Once married, she began to make and sell crafts to help put her husband through college. A temporary job led to a fulfilling lifetime profession. Karen developed a fascination with materials and has worked in many different media throughout her career, including textiles, jewelry, collage, and photography. She now focuses on creating dynamic mixed media paintings. Her style presents varying degrees of abstraction. The discerning viewer can decipher a blurred flower or a hazy horizon line while meditating on Karen’s soothing color palette.
