First Flush

August 31st, 2007

“First Flush” 9 x 12 oil on canvas on board
SOLD

When spring comes to Descanso Gardens, the first flush of roses is a sight to behold. In fact, it’s pretty darn spectacular any time of year, even now when the hot summer colors radiate from every corner.

Yesterday I spent some time up at the gallery with fellow artists Belinda del Pesco, and Trish Kertes – two of the most gifted artists and nicest people you’d ever want to meet. They were so very helpful in teaching me the ropes of running the gallery when it’s our turn in a few weeks. Their expertise was so very welcome.

Prints coming soon

I’m making my master list of things to do to get ready, and among them is making prints available for sale as well as original works. So if you’ve been interested in getting prints of some of the things I’ve posted here, I will soon be offering those in a variety of sizes. More details on that as I get further along. At the moment I need to focus on the imminent deadline.

  1. Someday.. our prints will come … ;)
    Best wishes on all this, Karen. I think it is the palette, in particular, that you’ve been using that appeals to me so much. But the hand that holds the brush, of course, gives it such a great spirit and life. This one is lovely. I’d take a print, for sure…

  3. This is so pretty! Gardens are amazing. Here it is the first day of spring and after the drought, then rains, there is plenty of new life in the garden, even tiny seeds have germinated with a promise of vegetables in summer.

  4. This is gorgeous, Karen. I love the soft colours, the blue highlights on the grass, and those roses – beautiful!
