Into the Morning – Daily Painting

December 10th, 2006

“Into the Morning” 8 x 10 oil on canvasboard

This last week I’ve been waking up dreaming of painting. Years ago, when I produced some shows on dreams for ABC’s 20/20, we learned from experts that ‘day residue’ forms a large part of the content of our dreams. So it’s not surprising that because I spend so much time thinking about painting, as well as painting, that it would slip into my night life as well. A few days ago, I dreamed about visiting a landscape not far from us that I hadn’t been to in maybe 10 years. So, that very morning, my husband and I walked up the trail and I took some reference photos to remember what the light was doing that time of day. No doubt I will return there again soon, to paint on location, now that I know what the place offers. (And I’ll hope no mountain lions will come calling!)

This painting is based on the photo and notes I made yesterday morning. I’ve been experimenting mixing different hues and learning the colors most common in our local hills.

  1. Love it particularly the directions of some paintings and the lights.

  2. Is this one for sale, Karen? Will you put it on eBay?
    This has to be one of my absolute favorites by you. Until, of course, you paint my next favorite. I am in awe of your use of light and the touches of blue in the darker areas. Geez.

  4. Karen, you are a very talented painter! How simply just wonderful to look at your latest oevre – “Into the morning”. By mysterious ways,
    I just happened to surf into your blog. In Sweden we have an expression when we like something very much: we say that it made you want for more.
    I have bookmarked your site, in order to to miss another enjoyable work by your hand.
