Cobb Sunset Trail – New Gallery Site

July 13th, 2007

“Cobb Sunset Trail” – 12 x 16 – oil on canvas

After a certain amount of procrastination, I’ve finally organized some of my favorite paintings (including this brand new one) into a gallery website separate from this blog. If you’d like to have a look, visit Karen Winters Fine Art or click the New Gallery Site icon in the right hand sidebar. I will be updating that site regularly, but I wanted to get something in place. If you find any links that don’t work, please let me know.

I’ve just joined two local art associations, the San Gabriel Fine Arts Association and The California Art Club and look forward to getting to know other artists and participating in paint outs and learning from the many fine artists who share their knowledge so generously. We are fortunate to have a lively and active arts community in the city, and I’m hoping to participate in every way that I can.

As a matter of fact, I’ve already taken part in two events at the SGFAA – I entered a watercolor painting for their July “Americana” show and was delighted to find that it won first prize. I’m sorry, I’ll have to wait until I visit the gallery to take a picture and post it. I framed it the night before it was due and neglected to scan it first. The other event, last Sunday was a wonderful demonstration by Joseph Stoddard, whose loose watercolors are a delight to behold. If you’re in the So. Cal. area, check out this group.

This Sunday I’m going to be taking part in a California Art Club paint out at Pasadena City Hall in honor of the refurbishment of their classic building, bringing it up to seismic standards and re-beautifying it as well. I’m really looking forward to the event and hoping that the day won’t be a scorcher.

Until then, I’ll be busily painting. Have a good weekend, everyone!

  1. I could walk right into that painting…. like one of those magic stories in kids books.

    heading over to your gallery

  2. Hey. Your paintings are very nice – especially your landscapes. It makes me want to visit California. I was wondering what method you use to put digital copies upon your blog. Do you take pictures with a digital camera or do you use a scanner? I would like to start a blog someday, and would like to know what the accepted method is.

  3. Thanks Pamela!

    Logan, thanks for your comments also.
    I do both – watercolors I usually scan, but oil paintings I shoot with a digital camera because i’m often too impatient to wait for them to thoroughly dry. Both ways work fine for me.

  4. I love the subtle colors and the composition on this one!

  5. Yes, I reckon taking a photo of an oil painting is better than placing a wet painting on your scanner! Wow, what a mess it would make. I get pastel marks sometimes on the glass and have to clean it up a bit. What a gorgeous colour palette you have used in this painting. I think that’s where oil has it over other mediums – the richness of the colours.

  15. I know I’ve said it before, but I can’t help saying it again. I absolutely adore your work. It reminds me of the masters, and I don’t say that lightly. I mean it. This is just gorgeous and reading your commentary I’m sure that everyone else catches your enthusiasm just like I do. Congratulations on the first place prize, I would’ve been surprised had they not chosen this one. Good luck with your new groups and new artist friends that you will meet. Looking forward to see what else you create!
