First people painting of 2012

I've been working on this painting for the last 4 days.  There are a few things that I like about it, but mostly, I'm just relieved to be done.  It was not fun to paint.  And when it comes down to it, isn't that what we're in this for.....the experience of ENJOYING the process?  It's been so long since I've worked in pure watercolor, and I needed a painting for the Transparent Watercolor of America show, so I promised myself to get one done!  I called it, "Between 2 Worlds" because I could see orbs floating around.  I used a 30 minute study for the idea for this painting. 


  1. Karen - its so good to hear the back story on this because looking at it I would never guess there was hesitation or debate! It's beautiful!

  2. Congratulations on getting one painting done for the new year. You are ahead of me! Next week will be my start. Love the design work in this.

  3. I'm so glad that I stumbled onto your blog, Karen. I'm a great admirer of your work, both from Karlyn Holman's books and from occasional visits to your website. I will definitely be checking in often to see what you are up to. And perhaps I can talk myself into my own 30 minute a day studies.
