New Orleans Starry Night Rain Original oil painting by Karen Tarlton

"If you want to find the secrets of the Universe,
think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration."
~Nikola Tesla

In this piece, you can almost hear the melody;
the piano man and the harmonica;
and the hum of the light rain on the colorful streets.

Original oil painting Lion Portrait by Karen Tarlton

12x12
Lion Portrait
Palette knife/oil on canvas

A soulful lion in cheerful colors and thick oils
I will painting a new lion large soon and am warming up
with a few smaller ones as I often do - playing
with gold and vibrant reds in rich drags of buttery oil paint.

More to see in my etsy shop!

Original oil painting Venice Gondolas by Karen Tarlton

I am a dreamer it's true, so when I do I paint my dreams, thoughts and visions.
I think all this winter and snow is making me long for
warm summer days and a magical get away.
But for now paint some memories!


“All people dream, but not equally.
Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind, wake in the morning to find it was vanity.
But the dreamers of the day are dangerous people
For they dream their dreams with open eyes
And make them come true”
~D.H. Lawrence

Original oil painting by Karen Tarlton Flowers and Bees and some of my favorite things

Bees a buzzing
and Blooms a blooming....
these are a few of my favorite things.

I am ready for some summer, or at least a little spring!
I used lots of thick texture on these two little gems
and either would make a sweet and unique gift for your special someone :)
