Original oil painting Portrait of a Cat by Karen

Cat Portrait

I've been neglecting this pet for awhile now
because of my dog commissions of late
but I love the stare a cat
and only a cat
can give you :)

Animal paintings by Karen Tarlton

I LOVE this horse painting and actually if doesn't sell right away I wouldn't mind keeping it awhile :)
Something about the bright colors and motion of this one and I have a sweet simple frame
that will work just great with it.

The more I paint animals the less meat I eat.
I used to be a vegetarian at one point in my life
and I've decided to do my best to go vegan once again.
If you read a book called "The China Study" you'll understand it's much healthier
but I think for the sake of the planet and the animals, it's also best. 
Anyway how cute is this little guy, and wouldn't you rather have a carrot?

Original oil painting Wild Horse Run by Karen Tarlton

 Wild Horse Run 

Wow this month is flying by!
Summer tends to do that I guess.  I'm enjoying my last few months at the beach.
We gearing up for another big move toward the end of summer and not sure of
the final destination ever, or is there ever one?
More adventures on the horizon :)

Original oil painting Birch Tree Splendor by Karen Tarlton

Birch Tree Splendor
I realized it's been years and years since I've painted 
these beautiful trees from my home town.
I love the fall color against the textured white and black :)

Refresh magazine feature - Karen Tarlton

One of my paintings is in the latest issue of Refresh Magazine! It was purchases by a collector whose excellent design taste put her home in this magazine. Mine is the winter tree painting on the left.

It was called "First Snow of Winter" and is a favorite winter painting with the sunrise is colorful blasts of color bursting behind the tree and snow all around.
