Original oil painting Autumn Rainy Romance by Karen Tarlton

Autumn Rainy Romance

I love September weather and watching 
the turn of the leaves
red, gold, amber
touches of green and yellow
crisp air
and a warm embrace

Original oil painting Portrait of a Lion by Karen Tarlton

Lion Portrait
King of beasts
Symbolizing freedom, courage
and a sense of the wild
There is not an animal alive that I wouldn't love to paint
but none so fantastic as the lion :)

Original oil painting palette knife fine art by Karen Tarlton

Roses Red

 Dalias at the Getty Gardens, Los Angeles

Sometimes a place like the Getty Museum is the best inspiration!
I had an afternoon of vigorous painting as soon as I returned from this little outing.
The gardens and architecture of this place are almost more inspiring that the art.
(but the Van Gogh Iris painting is hard to beat)

Original oil painting The Dancer by Karen Tarlton

"Dance like nobody's watching"
The Dancer

Love, now a universal birth,
From heart to heart is stealing, 
From earth to man, from man to earth,
- It is the hour of feeling.

There is a blessing in the air,
Which seems a sense of joy to yield,
To the bare trees , and mountains bare,
And grass in the green field.

More from my minds eye in my Etsy shop!

Original oil paintings by Karen Tarlton Birds and Boats

 Birds nd BLOOMS
Three Waiting

Well I'm working a tiny bit less this month, although still painting a few hours a day at least.
Our youngest daughter goes off to college soon
and we have just two weeks left to enjoy her.
I hope she thinks " I miss my dearest mother; I now no longer find her half so bothersome as she was -but remember her so careful and so kind."
 But I know she won't give
me much of a thought as her life begins to bloom
and friendships grow. 
She will hear my voice though, throughout her time away
and maybe miss
my smile and hugs - I know it! But not as much as I'll miss hers :)
