Original oil painting Equine palette knife fine art by Karen Tarlton

Wild Mustangs
Horse Play
Here are a couple new wild horses paintings that really make me smile!
When I feel like painting horses, it really is so much fun.
The powerful, sculptural shape of their muscular bodies really goes well with the palette knife
and the whimsical colors are like icing on the cake!

Bourbon St. Moon Original oil painting by Karen Tarlton

Bourbon St. Moon
A brand new favorite with a Starry Night take on it.
It stems from my love for both New Orleans and Van Gogh's work
and is loaded with texture and color.

A close up for detail viewing

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!

Portrait of a Lion

I wish the photos did justice to this one, but it just doesn't.
This is my favorite lion painting to date and I believe I've painted 6 so far.
Love this beautiful animal and the fauvistic extreme color and texture I love so much
fit him perfectly I think.
Noble, powerful and evocative creature that he his .....with just a touch of whimsy :)

Rain couple and Autumn Romance landscape paintings by Karen Tarlton

 Under My Umbrella

It actually rained today!
It didn't thunder storm and pour like it does in the south
but it did get a tiny bit wet.
It was fantastic!

Autumn Love

Repainting a room is the most inexpensive way to give new life to a space following rearranging the furniture. But the most visual impact comes from placing new or newly framed artwork on your walls. Your artwork is an extension of your inner personality. So, show it off!

Autumn Landscape palette knife original oil paintings by Karen Tarlton

Autumn Lake Reflections

I rather like the colors in this painting.
Blue and gold are some of my favorite color harmonies when used together.

Tapestry of Color

I'm really liking the perspective of these latest fall landscape paintings.
 I have a new large one I'm presently working on which will be finished some time next week.  I'm also loving all these luscious, dreamy transparent colors of Autumn!
