Boat trip to Capri

I hate to ride on boats because I get so sea sick but braved it anyway for this beautiful scenery!  We boated from Menori past Amalfi, Positano and beyond....all the way to Capri where we toured around for a few hours.  Scenes along the way were amazing.  We went in several grotto's along the way.  The water is Emerald and Cerelean blue!

This one makes me smile.  I think it's worthy of any kitchen, country, french country or not!  Thick, rich pure artist oil paint in all my favorite feathery colors!!!

Karen Tarlton Original oil painting Big Sur California

THIS PAINTING IS SOLD.........................Large 24x30...........Oil

I love this painting and love this place!  The iceplant was in full bloom when I visited a few weeks ago and I took full advantage!  Beautiful cliffs and the sound of surf call to be painted and so I painted it large and rich in texture! 

Just watched the news tonight and although I'm sitting here in dry as a bone thoughts are with all my friends in the South along that raging Mississippi!  God bless!

Violinist in Blue

Title:  Violinist in Blue
Size: 20x24
My daughter plays the violin beautifully and she is always an inspiration to my musical figurative pieces, and so is her music!  I draw attention here to plays of complimentary color.  Green on red, yellow on blue.  My intent is to tell a story and let you write it.
