"This bright, beautiful bird is certainly eye-catching," says Karen. "Its curious expression and colorful beak begged to be painted in a contemporary fashion." Part of Karen's newest series of animal portraits, focused on capturing the individual personalities of her subjects. She pairs each character with a complementary backdrop to frame their mood, expression and markings. The piece was painted on Arches heavyweight oil paper and then archivally adhered to a cradled panel. It comes ready to hang.

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.
