"This lovely green apple painting was inspired by the beauty and flavor of the fruit," says artist Karen Barton. "Apples are a common fruit that is often taken for granted. Its flavor is delicious and its culinary uses are many. What we forget is that this lovely fruit could not exist without a pollinator. Therefore, it is dressed in a gold ribbon and posed with a honeybee to draw attention and hopefully provoke some thought to its lovely qualities and the necessity of honeybees."

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.
