Gathering Flowers painting by Karen Tarlton palette knife fine art impressionism

"Gathering Flowers"

I have come to drag you out of yourself and take you in my heart.
I have come to bring out the beauty you never knew you had and lift you like a prayer to the sky.

Loads of time to paint now that my little dog has passed.
I'm on the waiting list for a new puppy soon though!  
In the floral still life brought to life on canvas!

Hummingbird Dance palette knife fine art impressionism by Karen Tarlton

 You have to use your imagination quite a bit when you paint them. When I watch them in my yard all I see is a brief blur of color and motion, and this is the energy I try to capture here.
Bold, expressive palette knife movements and energizing color

Lake Tahoe Serenity by Karen Tarlton palette knife fine art impressionism

So I'm going to start some new paintings this week that I hope bring a sense of peace and serenity to to our chaotic and sometimes very stressful world.  Remember that eventually we will be back to calm.

Bluebonnet Sunrise by Karen Tarlton palette knife fine art impressionism

Today, I want to tell you what I’ve been up to in this new strange world we are in.
Maybe you’ll feel the same and perhaps you’ll find some inspiration.
A few things I like to do besides painting of course:
Reading: A great book on the deck. Fresh air and turning the escape.
WATCHING. Ellen, and Modern Family reruns or and anything that makes me laugh and feel good.
Growing lettuce! a pot. It's so rewarding to water the soil and see the little plants pop up.
WINE. Doing my part to support my local wine maker. :)
DANCING. Always play music while painting and change it up. I love anything I can dance to and yes I dance while I paint!
VIRTUAL MEETUPS. I love my weekly zoom meeting with my kids and family. So love it.
Virtual workouts. Just started Body combat and it's awesome! I'll be able to take down a mugger at the end of all this.
WALKING. Two hour walks every day to Sunset Cliffs and back. There is nothing like a walk near nature, the ocean in my case, but a garden or neighborhood too, that bring you back to joy.
I wish all of you health, and joy and great days to come. We'll get through this. We are USA tough and don't let stress overwhelm you. Find time to find joy. Art helps too with that.
