Karen Knutson paints in mixed media, trying to make her paintings fun and easy. A wide range of subjects, including landscapes, figures, collage, abstracts, florals, and birds. Many lessons are included on this blog to encourage her art students. Teaching across the country makes her life a great journey.
This year, I bought a metal tree, actually meant for outside decor, but I wrapped lots and lots of tulle ribbon around the metal branches to "create" the actual body of the tree. It took me 3 full days to wrap the tree, but the results were well worth the time. It is really magical to see at night. Many strangers, who were out for a walk in our neighborhood, have stopped to comment on how much they love our Christmas tree! Needless to say, I will be storing this very carefully, so that I won't have to rewrap it next year. I have two Christmas trees, and this one is in my funky, arty room. The other one is a traditional green tree with Santa ornaments and red balls. I love this time of year, when we all have lots of parties, and for me, remembering Christ's birthday, and remembering friends who we haven't seen all year. Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and happy holiday season!
