"These two cute friends painted in beautiful, bright colors create a feel-good happy painting," shares artist Karen Barton. The inseparable characters of Bert and Ernie - well-loved Sesame Street staples - are shown here as toys, with vibrant red and green bodies, their iconic shaped heads and hair, and both sporting warm friendly smiles.

Puyallup, Washington

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.
