So Karen is painting...this picture a woman with a book, I love it.
And I'm writing. And we're finding out a thousand things we need to catch up on.
Go to her blog, too, which you can find through her website in the title link above.
“There are but three fundamental colors---red, yellow, and blue.” Vincent van Gogh
"And if Vincent said it then it must be true!? So I go with it, but I go with it because I like it that way. Three primaries, with maybe a daub of violet, and a bit of green, that which some people would call a limited palette. For me, it’s all that’s needed to make a painting that feels fresh and alive. And that’s where I need to be at this space in my life.
I paint with acrylic paint on gallery wrapped canvas. Occasionally I do ‘color sketches’ on paper which sometimes end up at exhibit as matted paintings. I do not make reproductions of any of my paintings, so each one that you look at is a unique rendering of my point of view." --Karen Cooper
