 Two 18x18 favorite Sunshine landscapes

Hope you all have a peaceful joy kind of day.

Palette knife and oil is all I use for my 
paintings. This is the best way to get clean, bright, rich color.
The secret to real vibrant paintings I believe.

Original oil painting Coy Fish Japan palette knife fine art by Karen Tarlton

I just recently returned from Tokyo where I had quite 
an interesting adventure.
I have a series of paintings I'll be listing, and this is the first.

"Coy Pond Serenity"

Japan's gardens are so beautiful and tranquil.
It's a peaceful experience to walk through one, so very different
from the busy rush of the train station and city.
More to come....
