Breaking Through – Karen Winters Daily Painting

January 17th, 2008

“Breaking Through” – 16 x 20 – oil on canvas – SOLD

This is the next in my series of marine paintings and it will go to the Descanso Gardens gallery in a day or so to replace the one that sold this past Monday. I’m really enjoying exploring this subject matter.

I’m thinking that this theme has been coming into my awareness for some time. I can remember scenes back into my teenage and young adult when I was absolutely rapturous at the sight of stormy skies and filtered light. Perhaps it moved me so much because clouds and storms are rare in Southern California and such events were fleeting and precious. Being on the beach at St. Augustine, Florida, as a storm moved in … seeing a thunderstorm in South Dakota while working on a Habitat for Humanity project … driving through New Mexico during monsoon season … these are images I will never forget. So these paintings are part of my journey of remembering – and I hope that they evoke memories for others as well.

    along with you.

  3. This is a really wonderful painting. I once took a photo similar to this scene. In my scrapbook the caption said, “Glory!”

  4. Most of your paintings seem to be of bright daylight so it’s good to explore the darkness, either as a stormy day, or even as night. Perhaps it’s because we don’t go out in the night on a walk to paint something! But it does give a balance to your collection to paint a series of works that are different.

  6. What a really effective paintings – that sort of atmospheric effect really makes you want to paint and yet it is far from easy. Lovely!
