Dana Point Headlands – oil painting – Karen Winters

June 4th, 2008

Dana Point Headlands – 18 x 24 oil on canvas

This brand new painting, shown for the first time here, features the headlands of Dana Point near the Ocean Institute. You can see the face looking out to sea on the sharp edge of the cliff. I don’t know if that’s the author Dana after which Dana point was named or some other mythological figure. If someone reading this knows the answer, please post the answer, ok?

My, what a few weeks this has been! It’s been a steady pace of painting, show-prepping, selling, followup and more painting. I’m loving every minute of it, of course.

The Rancho Santa Ana Botanical Garden show show went very well. Thanks to all those who purchased works from me, and thanks as well as some very special guests who made the trek out to Claremont to say hello. A few nights ago, I attended A Taste of Art at Gale’s Restaurant in Pasadena, where a group of artists (including me) all donated artwork to be sold to support the AIDS Service Center. It was great food, great wine, tons of good art and all for a wonderful cause.

Now I am back to my everyday painting routine, with many new works to come. So, watch this space … new art is on the way.

  1. Karen, This is stunning. I just returned from the CA coast a couple of weeks ago and you have captured that which my heart longs for. There is nothing like the peace offered by the crashing of the waves. It is so cleansing. This piece totally captures that calm peace and is truly beautiful.

  2. Wow, Karen! This is so beautiful. What struck me is the palette you’ve used — what glorious, soft blues you’ve achieved!! I’m normally not very attracted to blue, but this is stunning!!

  3. Are you feeling busy yet? :)
    I think, particularly in oil, Karen, you are coming into your fluency. To me, this is key. I would like to paint like I can talk, in English that is! To express myself, my feelings, the nuances, the subtleties.
    This painting has a sort of soft dominance (in spite of the rocks portrayed!) that is almost mystical. A subtle, coherent feeling. Nicely done.
    Don’t stop now, but do take a break one of these days!

  4. Thanks everyone. Bill, yes, I feel that way, too, especially as it comes to marine paintings. I feel very relaxed painting them, easily getting into a “flow” state. Actually the intense busy period is over and now I’m into my restful and just enjoy painting phase. It’s when I need to paint and prep for shows at the same time that it gets kinda crazy!

  6. Absolutely beautiful Karen! I love the color palette, the soft sky and gradations of color in the water – it’s truly gorgeous.
