Drifters in the Stream – California botanical oil painting – Descanso Gardens

March 23rd, 2009

SOLD

Today I got the good news that this painting, of fall leaves at Descanso Gardens, has been juried into the Pasadena Society of Artists spring show. Previously it was juried into the California Art Club’s “Rivers and Harbors” show at the Pasadena Women’s City Club. I hope it finds a good home on this outing. It’s more abstract than most of my work and painting it was a bit like doing a big jigsaw puzzle.

The PSA show will run from April 29 to May 16 at the VIVA Gallery on Moorpark in Sherman Oaks.

  5. The more abstract style is Fabulous! The reflections in the water are such a lovely balance to the brightly colored leaves. CONGRATULATIONS!

  6. Beautiful. That’s quite a technical (as well as artistic) feat. Good to see you keeping the range of your subject matter wide!

  7. Congratulations, Karen….
    I go by VIVA fairly often as it is somewhat close by my home so I’ll drop by to see it again.

  8. I agree with the other commentors – this semi- abstract style worked beautifully.

  9. I agree, too, Karen. This is such a refreshing scene and one feels so relaxed and peaceful.

  10. Very nice work. If this is for sale you should include the size and the price in your on-line listings. Your work could be the focal point of any room if the size was large enough. Houses these days are bigger, and it’s very hard to find good larger-size pieces–it seems that large paintings tend to be more abstract.

  13. This is absolutely lovely. Fabulous color, and sense of motion.

  14. The swirls of the current and accompanying reflections are just superb, Karen.

  15. It reminds me of so many things, which means it is an incredible abstract piece! Bravo!
