Original oil painting Calm, Bright Journey palette knife landscape by Karen Tarlton

So one of my favorite poems by Robert Frost
is the "Road Less Traveled" and this is how I see it.....
A warm glow guiding the way and colorful trees and reflections
to inspire and tell the story.

Original oil paintings by Karen Tarlton Pet portraits and commissions

Pet portraits - custom paintings 
In the last few months I've been busy! Here are a few images of beautiful dogs
that light up somebody's life, I know, and I feel honored to have painted.
They bring me joy and I feel the love the owners have for their pets as I paint and I hope it shows.

  This last one is just a photo of my Maggie!
She's my studio companion and jogging buddy.
Dogs are so much fun :)

Original oil painting Rooster Dance palette knife fine art by Karen Tarlton

Rooster Dance

Thanksgiving! I know it's not a turkey but close! 
 I hope you enjoy all the simple pleasures of the day, even amid the chaos: the scent of the turkey roasting in the oven, the autumn leaves swirling outside the window, or seagull cries in my case and the sounds of lively conversation and laughter.

Original oil painting Violinist "Blue Note" by Karen Tarlton - palette knife fine art impressionism

I dedicate my life to art, so ideas surround me, and I find beauty everywhere. The richness of life is where I find my inspiration, from the wonderous to the sadness. Music, too, is a big part of my journey. From Bach and Tchaikovsky to jazz and rock, I always have music playing while I am painting. Music is a perfect inspiration.

Original oil paintings commissions by collectors painted by artist Karen Tarlton

Paris Romance

Two new paintings that I would love to share.
The first was a gift to a friend. The boat is his "happy place"
and I thought he might like to see it everyday.
The second is a very large commission that was just shipped off.
I always worry about my larger works when in transit.
UPS can be "not so careful" I've found.
(fingers crossed)
