Many new prints on canvas by Karen Tarlton - Etsy artist in oil

A good painting to me has always been like a friend. It keeps me company, comforts and inspires. "
~Hedy Lemmar

Sometimes I'm sad to see them go so I put them in print!
Two new sold paintings now in print on canvas

Flower Painting | Small Oil Painting | Daily Painting | White Bird by Carol Schiff | 8x10x1.5" Original Oil

With this flower painting, I wanted to celebrate the beautiful, but not so well recognized, White Bird of Paradise.  If you live in the sub-tropical areas of the world, you probably see orange Bird of Paradise every day, but the white variety is not as plentiful.

purchase here
150 + shipping
 The interesting thing is that although the flowers are similar excluding color, the plant and leaves are quite different.


This variety grows on a much taller plant.  I have one over 12 feet tall.  The orange plant is lower to the ground and more bush like.

No frame necessary!

CBS Wants Me!

Something exciting has happened, here in the studio!

I have been contacted by CBS, and have given them my permission, to use two of my artworks on their TV shows.  The new Magnum PI, and Hawaii Five-O series  will be on my view list forever!

The artworks are both seascapes, and here they are:

Landscape Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Clinging to the World, 8x8x1.5" Original Oil, SOLD

This was a painting, I enjoyed creating!  I don't know why, but some days every brushstroke is a struggle, and a few times, everything just falls into place.

For me, this was a" fall into place day".


SOLD

Good days and bad days.  In the studio and out.  That is the way of life.  So, I try to enjoy the          "good" and not let the" bad" become overwhelming.

Here's hoping today is a "Good" day for you!



Thanks for checking out my blog today!

Coral Reef Painting, Key Largo Painting, Daily Painting, Large Oil Painting, 20x24x1.5" Oil


This is the largest of  my coral reef series....the largest so far.  It is highly textured, not with medium, but with paint.

purchase here

I sometimes paint over a failed painting, such as in this case.  Conventional wisdom will advise you to sand down your canvas and start over.  I prefer to let the texture of the failed painting show through.  Sometimes, I also allow pieces of the original art to show.

I originally had an abstract piece on this canvas, but although I liked some parts of the abstract, I  was not happy with the whole piece.  The canvas set in my studio for several years before I attempted to reuse it.  This technique may not be for everyone, but I am the texture queen, so, it appeals to me.



Thanks for viewing my art today.

Abstract Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Triptych Painting

Every now and then, I just have to do an abstract.  Usually painting knives are involved.  This one is no exception.   I wanted to take a square composition and turn it into a rectangle. This us what I came up with.

Purchase Here
135. + shipping

and here is the original square composition.  Which do you prefer?




SOLD 
I have been in North Carolina, in the mountains for the past few weeks.  We are enjoying our time here.

The other day we went to the park and had a picnic lunch, something we never do at home.  There were ducks and geese everywhere.



We had a relaxing and fun time and our sandwiches tasted twice as good as usual.  The crisp fall weather comes and goes.  It is so much fun to be in the mountains this time of the year and I cannot wait for the fall color.   I will share with you when it comes.

When I work on the computer,  I can see chipmonks running back and forth, across the patio.  They are so fast, it is hard to get a photo, but I did manage to catch one stuffing his cheeks with goodies.



Have a great fall day, wherever you are.

I have to admit, I enjoyed painting this scene.  My choices of subject matter are always based on emotion and on this day......the waves filled my need for action.

This is not my usual painting.  This painting was commissioned by a client, who wanted to use it on his CD cover.  He had written and recorded songs and wanted the cover to represent specific lyrics.

I allowed him to dictate the exact scene he requested, which resulted in this painting.  The bad news is, he was not happy with the results.  The good news is, he had paid an non-refundable deposit.

Although my deposit, was not enough to cover the materials and labor I expended, I believe it was a profitable experience.  I learned a lot of dos and don'ts.  He ended up purchasing another painting.

We parted ways, but I believe we were both happy with the outcome.

Violin Girl paintings by Karen Tarlton palette knife impressionism

Two new favorites are finished.
THE PAINTINGS:
This is part of my "Women in the Arts series". I varnish coffee stained violin sheet music on a primed canvas and then add layer upon layer of first acrylic and then oils. I allow some of the sheet music to show through, where the paint is just thinnly glazed with oil, so that you see some of what it is she and I are so inspired by....the music! It takes a lot of time to paint these figurative paintings but I enjoy every second of it and love the results! I hope you do too.

Fish Painting, Angelfish Painting, Textured Painting,SOLD

Sometime ago, I visited Key Largo, which inspired a series of paintings, I called my Coral Reef Series.  One of  favorites of the series is called "Angels on Parade".



My client, who purchased this painting, also commissioned a companion piece.  Below is the second painting.



The client was very pleased with the pair of artworks.

Island Marketplace, Large Figurative Painting, 52x26x1.5" Original Painting

I consider myself to be a daily painter.  As a daily painter, most of my work is small, many times just 6x8".

 My painting today is a different story at 52" x 26".  Not my largest painting ever...but right up there.



Purchase Here

I enjoy painting large, but it does present other issues.  Framing or no frame?  Such a large piece means a large investment in framing....a frame your client may or may not approve.

Where do I store it?  Not everyone has the luxury of a spacious studio.  I am one of those people.  Since downsizing, I have even less space to store unsold artwork.

The logistics of painting such a large piece, is not to be ignored.  My aging knees protest at the thought of climbing up and down a step stool to paint.

So, this piece may continue to be one of my rare, larger efforts.

Thanks for reading my blog today.

Does anyone read my blog?

I  thought I would catch up with the stats on my blog, today, and found some very interesting results!

For instance......the number 1 blog post, after 9 years of posting, is a small abstract, I barely remember.  Posted on August 18, 2013, it has 6 times the amount of views of the number 2 blog post.



The second most popular post, was this little floral.


I do not consider either to be in the top 10 of my most "memorable" works.

Does my blog need a major overhaul?  Or should it die a quiet death?  Is the day of the "blog" over?

Any comments would be appreciated.
