I love Autumn and watching the leaves turn gold, orange and red,
get crisp and fall from the trees like colorful rain drops.
The weather is cooler and dryer and
Mums are blooming and pumpkins seem to be everywhere.

Have a beautiful October.

Original oil paintings Central Park New York Autumn by Karen Tarlton

I have two brand new New York paintings inspired by Central Park from my last visit a month ago.
We stay fairly close to the park and my husband is a marathon runner, so while he goes for miles
and miles, I run/walk/jog stop to sketch and photograph
this amazing place.
Yes I like the Gapstow Bridge area best!
And here are my creations.
I hope you enjoy!

Original oil painting Autumn Vineyard by Karen Tarlton

Well it's already here - the season of color.
It's chilly today and the leaves are turning gold and already falling from the Mulberry and 
great Oaks in my backyard.
The Dogwoods in the front are turning crimson and getting ready to soon drop too.

Even the vineyards turn glorious colors in October and it's pure joy to see it!

Original oil paintings Wild Horses, Football and Rain Girls by Karen Tarlton

Into the Light
Like ghosts these beautiful creatures move effortlessly and I love painting them.
This one has a soft and more ethereal feel.

 Facing the Storm
This was painted for a collector specifically to use
for a poster for VaGirlsSummit at George Mason-
girls are stressed out and feel the need to be perfect and this painting
hopes to show them facing the world head on and says "you are doing enough right now" in bold,
colors and strokes of paint.

The Running Back

Well each of these has a unique story.
Football has been in the news a lot lately and on my T.V. as my husband is a huge fan,
and I don't much understand the game but I do appreciate the athletes and always
seem to see a potential painting in just about everything.
