Ready to Hang
Playful and unique, this painting is sure to brighten any room. It was painted using the encaustic method; beeswax, damar resin and fine pigments. The painting has a wonderful texture varying from heavily textured to a glass-like finish. It is an interesting piece with a very organic feel. The sides were left the natural pine color. Comes ready to hang with wire attached and is signed on the back.
My name is Karen Kieffer and I am a full-time, working artist living in Southern California. From my earliest memories, I have had a strong desire to express myself through creating art. I strive to evoke an emotional responsive to my art through the use of color and texture. Although I work in several mediums, the majority of my works are painted using encaustic; beeswax, damar resin and pigments. No other medium seems to be able to elicit the depth, luminosity and soulfulness that can be achieved with encaustic. I have painted professionally for 15 years, exhibiting in many group shows as well as solo shows in the Los Angeles area. I am a member of several local artists groups including Pasadena Society of Artists. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy my portfolio!
