Karen Burns Fine Art
Painting from life, I enjoy showcasing vintage pieces that have been worn by time and made weary with use. It is the push and pull of the oils that hold my interest, as well as preparing simple, pleasing compositions in a vibrant classic style.
I work with professional oils and paint on archival panels wet into wet, pushing and pulling the paint, while working from direct observation. I have always been drawn to the Old Master's traditional style. Even though I enjoy stepping away to try new things with oils, I always return to this rich, classic style. Still Life is what holds my attention. I enjoy the calmness of it, giving the items room to breathe. I use everyday objects often showcasing vintage pieces that have been worn by time and made weary with the patine of life and use. You can learn more about me in a recent blog post right here on MadeByHer. I'd love to hear from you!
