Original oil painting Spring Birds and Blooms and Rain Dance by Karen Tarlton

Spring Birds and Blooms

There is a story line for these paintings actually.
Today I woke up to birds chirping outside my window and the loud rain from the night before
seemingly coming to an end....
then the downpour and then it actually snowed again.
So here they are.
I'm just no longer buying it :)
Rain Dance

Original oil painting Beach child sandcastles by Karen Tarlton


Inspiration for this painting:
I have one daughter in studying abroad in Europe and another singing on spring break
in China. So - both babies are grown young women with some serious sandcastle building skills I think!
This is really how it all began....... and I remember these days like they were yesterday.
Hours of sandcastle building on the beaches of Florida and Southern California where we were stationed.
Carefree days of summer....

Original oil painting California Vines by Karen Tarlton

California Vines - Napa Vineyards

Life goes by at such pace.
I wish sometimes it could all be slowed down a bit
and there was so much more time for long strolls
through calm landscapes and sunny skies.
Peaceful landscapes bring a sense of calm I think.
