Original oil painting Spring Tree and Wine for Two by Karen Tarlton

“Every spirit builds itself a house; and beyond its house a world; and beyond its world, a heaven. Know then, that the world exists for you. For you is the phenomenon perfect. What we are, that only can we see. All that Adam had, all that Caesar could, you have and can do. Adam called his house, heaven and earth; Caesar called his house, Rome; you perhaps call yours, a cobler's trade; a hundred acres of ploughed land; or a scholar's garret. Yet line for line and point for point, your dominion is as great as theirs, though without fine names. Build, therefore, your own world.” 
― Ralph Waldo EmersonNature



Working on some commissions and some larger paintings this week, but here

Original oil painting Beach Babes by Karen Tarlton - children on the beach

Beach Babes

I've been busy this week, but this painting sums up everything pretty well.
Moving to the beach and I feel like I've gone full circle with my life.
22 years ago we lived in San Diego and our first daughter was born there. 
She's now graduating from college and we're moving back!
I'll be painting in the very same spot where it all started.
Isn't that something?
