Huntington Gardens Tea Room and Rose Garden Oil Painting 11 x 14 inches – oil on canvas This is a plein air painting that I did a few years ago, and somehow it escaped being photographed and posted to my blog. A recent conversation prompted me to revisit it and I discovered that it was [...]

Magnolia Flowers – Huntington Gardens Oil Painting by Karen Winters

Monday, April 28th, 2008

“White Magnolias” 16 x 20 oil on canvas SOLD at the Art Matters show The moment I saw these beauties at the Huntington Gardens and Library, I just knew that I had to paint them. They were luminous in the morning light – exactly the kind of subject matter that excites me. This will be [...]

Saturday, November 24th, 2007

Fall at the Huntington – 9 x 12 oil on canvas on hardboard In Southern California sometimes our seasons get all mixed up.

Evergreens [...]

“Climbing Rose” 5 x 7 oil on canvas on board This is the second in what will be an ongoing series of rose portraits – at least as long as they keep blooming, which will probably be a few more weeks from the looks of things at Huntington Gardens and Descanso Gardens. I think it’s [...]
