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 [...]

Camellia Blossom – Karen Winters Daily Painting

Monday, February 4th, 2008

Camellia Blossom – 11 x 14 oil on canvas Camellias bloom in Los Angeles anytime from November to spring, depending upon the species. These are the first in a botanical series which I’m starting work on. There was a certain learning curve as I worked to render the delicacy of the petals. I’m used to [...]

Fortune Cookie – Karen Winters Daily Painting

Wednesday, January 9th, 2008

“Fortune Cookie” – 5 x 7 – acrylic SOLD This painting was done in response to a creative challenge to “draw or paint something wrapped in plastic.” Since we had Chinese food the other night, I still had this fortune cookie sitting around, so I decided to paint that. The problem is, I can’t read [...]

In the Garden

Thursday, August 16th, 2007

“In the Garden” 9 x 12 – oil on canvasboard SOLD I tried posting this using Qumana, the blogging application that lets you compose a blog posting in a dedicated application (not a browser.) Although I like the ability to add formatting easily, I don’t see a way to preview my post, which I could [...]

The Stories They’d Tell – Daily Painting

Tuesday, February 13th, 2007

“The Stories They’d Tell” – 5 1/8″ x 7″ – oil on canvas mounted on masonite. Among the homeliest objects in our home are this old pair of scissors and a wooden “Clarks” spool. Both are probably from the 40s or 50s, judging from the look of them. Occasionally we’ll go to estate sales in [...]

Lil white mushroom

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006

This is my entry for the Botanical Art month long “fungus” challenge. I’m sorry to say that here in desert dry Southern California we have a hard time keeping mushrooms fresh in our fridges let alone finding any growing wild … so this painting is from a photo I took of one harvested in January [...]

Here’s your 15 minutes …

Monday, August 7th, 2006

Happy birthday yesterday. Were you still alive, you would have been 78. And you probably would have a blog and be demonstrating your latest works on YouTube. I’m sorry you didn’t live to see the internet; you would have loved it. No, you would have helped shape it, or at least shake it up a [...]

Bless me father, for I have snacked

Monday, July 31st, 2006

Presented for your consideration, a portrait of my all time favorite snack. Yes, I am a pretzel addict. I like chips but could pass them up. Candy? I have only a vague interest. I can even pass up chocolate. But I absolutely adore pretzels, a taste acquired, I’m sure, from my Pennsylvania Dutch forbears. Here [...]

Epidendrum

Tuesday, June 13th, 2006

I painted this epidendrum orchid in my back yard recently. The frilled, fringed flowers are commonly orange, yellow, red or cream colored and are borne on long spikes like this (I’ve only shown a part of it – the spike is probably 2 feet tall.) This painting was done in my 9 x 12 sketchbook [...]

Blues in the Woods

Saturday, May 27th, 2006

Today we drove up into the Angeles Crest National Forest to hear some music at Newcomb’s Ranch Inn … the only restaurant/road house in the vast national forest. Specifically, we drove the 45 minutes or so from our home to hear bluesman
