Oh Karena, it was so inspiring to visit you over at Cindys
Rough Luxe lifestyles...
A side of you that makes me wish that much more that i had béen able to meet up with you and Andrea. I know that there will be more times for a meeting in the future.

As for your works of art, I left a comment you can read over at Cindy's I meant every word of it.
I love the painting with the Bleu sky and dark horizon and the same one Cindy likes, it would be the one with the pink sky if I designed more around pinks in my home, but truly find something so spiritual in each and everyone.
I knew you were an artist but did not have a chance to get to know enough of that side of you until Cindy's wonderful spotlighting of you.
I hope to see you post more of you, your raw side of beauty.

Would love to sit by your side someday and just paint, listening to it ,
just listening.

You put your heart into your art and everything you do and it shows. Thank you for sharing your beauty and for stopping by my blog this summer.

I just went to Cindy's blog and Karena, I am so impressed. Forgive me for never even observing your own art! That pink sky is my absolute favorite. You are inspiring me for I love the simplicity with which you capture a most complicated emotion in the heavens, on the horizon where sea and sky kiss. THANK YOU!!!!!

Karena, that was a great interview,
needless to say the art is wonderful. Great advise about visiting galleries. I am not one to toot my horn so I need someone to sponsor my art. yvonne

Hi Karena, how are you feeling? I still want to get a note off to you and will soon, I look at your address daily on the top of the heap on my desk :)
I found these two baskets within two days apart two separate shops, a rarer find around here in our thrift shopping or vintage mall shops!
I am having so much fun adding these two to my home of natural tones and white Frenchness.

I do hope Andrea brings back some wonderful baskets, I just love her shopping totes. I am not going to miss the next meeting up with the two of you, any any mishap will have to wait :)

I hope your days are filled with inspiration to paint more of your beautiful passion on canvas. I paint most of the time on wood, old salvage, and on paneling wood, I love the texture it has on one side and the slickness of the other side; it gives me a choice in how I want my art to look and feel, yet most of the time it's the rough canvas wood fiber grain that works well for me. I have painted on canvas boards yet not stretched canvas, it's a whole other medium I have trouble feeling comfortable with.

I love your free spirit in your art, and the darker side of who you paint for. It's mood is intoxicating yet, I am sure you have experienced that feeling with every stroke, I have painted some seascapes and try to get away from a tight grip of the brush, I need to loosen up and just paint. I am wishing I could study your work up close and personally, letting it inspire something in me :)

See you soon,


You feature so many wonderful artists. How fun that someone is featuring you.

How is your summer going, Karen?
