Original oil paintings Birch Trees and Wild Horses by Karen Tarlton

It's time for some thick paint and color!

Original oil painting Portrait of a Girl by Karen Tarlton

Private collection

This is a personal favorite because one of my daughters was the model,
and of course my dog :)
Her eyes were so much fun because they are so very beautiful
and I could stare into them for hours on end.

Original oil painting Venice Italy by Karen Tarlton

Venice in Afternoon Light

It's been awhile since I have painted this lovely, magical place and it was time.
I would love to go back, but my next trip will be to Sweden, Norway and England.

a new adventure!
