From her statement: In her current series of work Karen is using a variety of watermedia in layers to achieve a highly textural and dynamic presentation. After 40 years of painting realistic interpretations of landscapes, floral¬†and architectural themes, Karen finds this concentration on the relationships between the basic elements of art (shape, value, line, color and texture) to be more exciting personal approach to her art. Methods, materials and themes change but a consistently good composition and design hold the viewer’s eye.¬†
