Original oil paintings Wild Horses, Football and Rain Girls by Karen Tarlton

Into the Light
Like ghosts these beautiful creatures move effortlessly and I love painting them.
This one has a soft and more ethereal feel.

 Facing the Storm
This was painted for a collector specifically to use
for a poster for VaGirlsSummit at George Mason-
girls are stressed out and feel the need to be perfect and this painting
hopes to show them facing the world head on and says "you are doing enough right now" in bold,
colors and strokes of paint.

The Running Back

Well each of these has a unique story.
Football has been in the news a lot lately and on my T.V. as my husband is a huge fan,
and I don't much understand the game but I do appreciate the athletes and always
seem to see a potential painting in just about everything.

Original oil painting Breezy Sailing by Karen Tarlton

I've lived at the beach or near it many times in my life.
San Diego, Manhattan Beach, Fort Walton Beach, and probably
a couple other places I can't remember. 
But I do remember the feel of the cool breeze in my hair, the salty fresh smell from the pier
and the sailboats on the horizon.

Original oil painting New York Summer Night Inspiration by Karen Tarlton

New York Summer Night Inspiration

This one is shipping off to a gallery!

We just recently got back home to D.C. from our weekend in New York
and it was amazing!
The most emotional part for us was the trip to ground zero which is now one
of the great wonders of our world; the new One Trade Center building, Two waterfall memorials built in the footprints of the two buildings, and the museum.

There museum there is so impressive and awesome - so
inspirational, just like the people of New York.
