Ready to Hang
I am a military spouse, married 25 years. I paint whimsical animals and figures, textural florals, landscapes and cityscapes and my work has a large online worldwide following. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to study the artwork of master painters across the country. My travels to Europe and many military moves across our country have provided a new dimension to my art in terms of subject matter and application.
Sweeping color, texture and impressionism are the words that describe what I love to do. I am more concerned with creating a mood with rough beauty, emotional honesty and bold color.
I work primarily on canvas in oil with a palette knife, using this technique for many years now. My techniques allow for interesting textural possibilities and complex color layers in an expressive, impressionistic style which borders on abstract.
I am Karen Tarlton and I paint oil paintings with a unique sense of color, texture and light. With loose strokes and bold use of color, I bring a unique perspective to the contemporary art world. My paintings are a visual journey that allow the essence of my subject matter to come to life. Here you will find my unique palette knife paintings. I create lively, engaging, colorful art, and my work is widely collected worldwide. As of 2002, I have been creating a new painting almost every day. My artwork brings birds, cows, horses, flowers, and even angels to life. Landscapes, cityscapes, and boat-filled harbors become illuminated by majestic, textured light. I strive to infuse my paintings with energy, intimacy and brilliant color. My work is collected in galleries and private collections worldwide.
