Sunset Soiree – California Impressionist Plein Air Genre Painting

Monday, September 29th, 2008

“Sunset Soiree” SOLD 9 x 12 oil on canvas Plein air painting A few nights ago I had the pleasure of doing a plein air sunset painting while listening to the sweet sounds of The Crown City Brass Quintet. Wine, music, art, lovely people, gardens. It just doesn’t get any better than this! And now, [...]

Still Life with Red Vase – Karen Winters

Sunday, September 28th, 2008

5 x 7 oil Still Life with Red Vase A small study of a vase with a sprig of abelia from a bush blooming outside our door. Painted from life. I’m off to a nocture paintout this evening, which should be an interesting challenge. I’ve scouted the location and know what to expect, generally, but [...]

Friday, September 26th, 2008

El Molino Afternoon SOLD 11 x 14 oil on board First Place, 2008 Pasadena Artwalk “Life in the Theater District” competition Remember a few months back when I said I was in a painting frenzy, getting ready for all sorts of shows and competitions?

Celebrating – Third Prize – Bowers Museum Invitational Art Show 2008

Monday, September 22nd, 2008

So this was the result of last weekend’s art show at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana. This was the first invitational museum show I’ve participated in, and I was thrilled to learn that I received one of the top prizes for “Sunset Magic.” Now, I’m hoping that it will find a good home soon. [...]

Malibu California Impressionist Seascape oil painting – El Matador Beach

Friday, September 19th, 2008

El Matador View 11 x 14 oil This is a painting that I worked on while gallery sitting, enjoying the company of passers-by. With the heat we experienced this past month, there were many days that I would have preferred to have been on that shoreline. Soon enough, I’ll be there. Today I’m getting ready [...]

Matilija Poppies – California Impressionist Botanical Flower Oil Painting

Monday, September 15th, 2008

Matilija Poppies Trio 11 x 14 oil on canvas These papery white beauties were growing near the Serra Center in Malibu one blustery summer day. The exciting thing about painting white flowers is enjoying all the colors they pick up from their environment. This painting blurs the line between abstraction and realism and I hope [...]

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

11 x 14 oil on canvas “Arroyo Afternoon” Colorado Street Bridge, Pasadena, late afternoon in early fall SOLD See more Pasadena paintings here There are few places that I enjoy returning to again and again as much as Pasadena’s Arroyo Seco where the majestic Colorado Street Bridge is framed by oaks, sycamores and those ever [...]

California Sunset Landscape Impressionist Painting – Karen Winters

Monday, September 8th, 2008

California Sunset 5 x 7 inch oil on panel In the wide open heartland of California’s Central Valley, the skies are big and the land is rich and bountiful. This plein aire style impressionistic landscape painting captures the glory of the waning day. I can’t pinpoint the exact location, but the surrounding names are picturesque, [...]

Saturday, September 6th, 2008

Pasadena Court of Appeals – former Vista Del Arroyo Hotel 11 x 14 acrylic SOLD This stately building has become the federal court of appeals in Pasadena, California, but it was formerly the Vista Del Arroyo Hotel. I’ve painted it once before in my sketchbook, but this was an opportunity to portray it from a [...]

San Juan Capistrano Fountain – California Impressionist Mission Oil Painting by Karen Winters

Friday, September 5th, 2008

Capistrano Fountain 11 x 14 oil The mission San Juan Capistrano was the cheerful inspiration for this classic California impressionist painting. I have included the sago palms, several fan palms and blooming jacarandas to complete the setting of summery splendor. Water lilies bloom in the landmark fountain, topped with a sculptural urn. Water irises wait [...]
