Good Morning, La Canada Flintridge

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

“Good Morning, La Canada” 9″ x 12″ oil on canvas on board For more information about this painting, please write In our small town, the streets aren’t usually this deserted in the morning, but during the holidays and early weekend mornings there’s definitely less traffic. I decided to leave out the random cars for the [...]

Lake Casitas California Impressionist Landscape Oil Painting

Friday, December 26th, 2008

Lake Casitas Sunset 16 x 20 oil on canvas Available For more information about this painting, please write One of the best bass fishing spots in California, so I’ve been told, is Lake Casitas in Ojai, not far from the Pacific Ocean and Carpinteria. The lake is formed by Casitas Dam and offers year round [...]

California’s Rolling Hills – Impressionist Landscape Oil Painting

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

California’s Rolling Hills 9 x 12 oil on canvas panel Available I can’t count the times we’ve driven back and forth through California’s beautiful hills, decorated with stands of live oak trees. When we were first married we took many photo trips up and down the coastline, and these canyons and byways around Monterey were [...]

Sunday, December 21st, 2008

Cottonwood Dawn (near Bishop, California) 16 x 20 oil on canvas SOLD Ths painting is sold but I have others of the Sierras in the fall. Write me. Although the leaves are now fallen and scattered by the wind, the eastern Sierras still call me and evoke memories of golden glory. I understand that snow [...]

Carpinteria Bluffs Sunset Oil Painting – California Impressionist Karen Winters

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

Carpinteria Bluffs Sunset 16″ x 16″ oil on canvas SOLD This is one of the paintings inspired by our recent trip to Carpinteria, on California’s central coast. The late afternoon marine layer had come in, shrouding the Channel Islands in a misty glow that reminded me of those tales of Arthurian Avalon. The sky colors [...]

Poppy and Mandarin Still Life – California impressionist Karen Winters

Monday, December 15th, 2008

Poppies and Mandarins 14 x 18 oil on canvas Painted from life The brilliant but delicate iceland poppies form a backdrop for the mandarin oranges. Or perhaps they were tangerines or clementines. I can never be sure about citrus. There is some glare on this painting because it’s soaking wet, but I hope it conveys [...]

My interview on Creative Liberty

Saturday, December 13th, 2008

Pomegranates and sunflowers 11 x 14 oil on canvas I was interviewed yesterday on Creative Liberty, a wonderful blog about living creatively. Liz Massey, the blog owner and a creative coach asked me some good questions for her “In the Studio” series, and I enjoyed the opportunity to talk about my work flow, staying “unblocked” [...]

Friday, December 5th, 2008

“California Sycamore – Tranquility” 18″ x 18″ SOLD (commission) This is the matching painting which pairs with the California Live Oak which I posted yesterday. Together, the two frame the dining room door of gentle lady who commissioned their creation. There is always some serendipity with painting. You never know exactly what is going to [...]
