Lake Como Italy Reflections painting by Karen Tarlton fine art impressionism

I have a smaller (study) version of this one as well.
This place is lovely and so it deserves a large version.

Every once in awhile, I like to review my painting files.  I think it is extremely helpful, to see how your painting style has changed over the years.

When I started painting, I did lots of still life.  These two have encouraged me, to get back in the still life mode, doing set-ups in my studio.

Sometimes we just need to shake things up a little.   I think I am there, now.  Let's get a little new inspiration!

California Landscape, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 11x14" Oil Landscape

My good friend, and excellent photographer, Ted Fuhrer,  has done it again, supplying me with so many inspiring images to paint from.  On of the many places he has lived was the coastal region of California.



Purchase here
225 + shipping 
Ted, I hope you think I did justice to your work.

I am always in awe of the western coast of our country.  Living on the east coast is great, and I am so blessed to be here. We have gentle surf, warm water, island music.... But to me, the west coast is larger than life.  So rugged, so big, a constant test to exist there. The boulders are larger than houses, the mountain streams are full of rushing rapids. The pioneer spirit is still alive there.  I cannpt wait to visit again.

Autumn Serenity painting palette knife fine art impressionism by Karen Tarlton

Every time I paint a colorful fisherman painting, my heart experiences an intense feeling of calmness and peace. I know exactly that this feeling comes from the relaxed atmosphere of this serene landscape and it's beauty is intensified because of this sense of calm.

Autumn Fishing Serenity

Abstract Seascape Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 11x14" Original Oil Painting

It is so hard to believe, that we have been living in the mountains of North Carolina for 9 months.  I marvel at the beautiful mountain scenes outside my door.  Asheville has sooo much to offer!

But there is something it cannot offer...the beach, the sea, the salt air.  

Maybe that is why I was moved to do this abstract.

Purchase here

I had fun playing with the direction of my knife strokes.  Still a minimalist painting, but with a little added interest.   Hmmmm, I see a mountain abstract in my future!


The perfect wall decor for a beach house, or for someone dreaming of a beach house.

We will be heading back to the beach soon, and I will have sand on my toes, once again.

Have a blessed day!

Fall Landscape, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, One Last Autumn Painting, 6x8" Oil on Canvas

I know, I know!  By now, you are sick and tired of hearing me go on about fall in the mountains!  I promise, this is my last little autumn painting.


Purchase Here

I am trying to bring additional color, and different color into my art.  This time of year is perfect!  I tend to be a cool hue kind of girl, so inspiration is easy with fall colors everywhere.


Hmmmm!  I think I could become fond of the "other" side of the color wheel.  In any case, change is always a good thing.

Feeling Orange,

Fall Landscape Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 6x8" Oil on Panel

Today I am posting another new autumn painting.  I am so inspired by the beautiful landscapes beyond my windows.

Purchase Here


There is nothing better than a bright, sunny, fall day, with those gorgeous leaves, highlighted against a bright blue sky.



This is a cute little house, down the road, in Waynesville NC.  A little story book house!

Time for pumpkins, burning leaves, and roasting marshmallows.  The local orchards are full of apples and cider.  YUM!  If I could just find a hay ride, life would be complete.

Holiday paintings, Santa and Snowman by Karen Tarlton palette knife fine art in oil

I can't believe it's already November but I do know how fast
this month is going to slip by.
Thanks to my collectors that remind me to paint some winter scenes!
On it.


Whimsical animal painting by Karen Tarlton palette knife fine art impressionism

Whimsical animal paintings are so much fun!
Hope you enjoy.


Rural Landscape Painting, Autumn Painting,Daily Painting, Palette Knife Painting, 11x14" Oil

A scene that is found everywhere, in my new state, North Carolina.  Maybe not everywhere, but, everywhere around here in the Asheville area.

We are just getting hints of fall.  A maple will have one red branch, while the rest of the tree is still green.  But I can sense that it WANTS to be red!


Purchase here

This is my first autumn as a resident in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and I am excited!





Hope your day is colorful, too!

Coral Rose Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Impressionist art

I recently took a 3 day workshop from my favorite instructor, Elio Comacho, where we painted fresh flowers every day.

purchase here

Since I usually paint from the computer monitor, it is always a challenge to paint from life.  I do enjoy it, but, I know myself well enough to know that I need the advantage of having an image available whenever I want it.

purchase here

 When I paint flowers on my monitor, I tend to get tighter.  That does bother me.

Both of these were painted using my monitor.  I am not unhappy, but I hope to see improvement down the road.


Hope you have a rosy day!

Original oil paintings by Karen Tarlton - Key Bridge - Sunset Cliffs Sunrise - palette knife fine art impressionism

Two new favorites in many shades of blue and coral.

Abstract Seascape Oil Painting, Tropical Waters, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 11x14x1.5" SOLD

Continuing on my tropical journey to the Florida Keys.  Today's post is my impressions of the sea off the coast of southern Florida.

SOLD
 It is hard to find more fun (in the studio), than to dig into a big pile of paint, with your knife, and just go to town.  Adding and subtracting values and hues........puts me in the zone every time.

detail
As much as I love creating all this yummy texture, I can only do it for a few days, before I start to crave a little structure and strong composition.  Each day I work on this coral reef series, I get a little less abstract and and little more impressionist.

Join me on my journey.....



Thanks for visiting my blog today!
