"Thanks. Good observations! I knew the size of mailboxes very different but my skill level inadequate. Never thought of perspective. It took me a year to tackle this painting. Right, warmer shadows on an overcast day. I'm trying and learning…"

"GREAT PAINTING!!  I was curious to see where you were going with the reference photo. I did not see this coming! I almost did not notice the hikers, then when I did, it was a WOW. Bold colors are amazing here. Nice work!"

"Hi Karen, Thank you for such an in-depth critique. I have always appreciated cutting to the chase so to speak. I want to progress and can't do that with just flattery. I was in an interpreted figure drawing with a live model for years and did…"

Hi Madeleine!  I am in Prescott.  Recently moved from Hawaii after 23 years.  My husband and I are really enjoying it [but it's cold!].  Welcome to Karen't website.  I have really learned a lot in the last couple of years.
