"The cupcake is a popular treat that everyone recognizes and is frequently represented in art with bright colors," says artist Karen Barton. Choosing to limit the bright colors with the cherry and sprinkles, she painted the rest of the cupcake in understated color. With thick paint application, Karen provided a fun touch and color balance by finishing the minimal piece in a tonal pink background.

Oil painter Karen Barton creates records of everyday objects through a historical and sentimental lens. With works that feature the ingredients of a PB&J sandwich or the iconic blue Morton's Salt container, Karen makes a connection through the goods that reach into our homes and possibly to our childhoods. As she explains, "my paintings are of a historical nature. They mostly represent contemporary culture and our current time in history while others are ‘timeless icons.'" Karen collects her subjects at local grocery, hardware, or antique stores where she often attracts curious stares while she intently examines the items. Based in the Pacific Northwest, Karen shares a studio with her artist husband, which she describes as a busy looking place with art supplies and a bright yellow futon with Libby, their beloved studio dog.
