Baby Gala

oil on Raymar canvas panel 4x4 inches

I've been getting really fussy lately, so I thought why not paint a single object on a little canvas with a big brush? And why not do a series of these? An apple makes a good start. It's still a bit fussy, but with a colorful gala like this I can't stop myself. Maybe I can stop myself on the next one.
Tomorrow I'll take a one day plein air workshop in Murietta with Lisa McDill. I hope I have a good painting to post, but mostly it will be fun and instructive for sure!
Tomorrow is the Opening Reception for the Ontario Open Art Exhibition at the Museum of History and Art. Two of my daily paintings are in the show. The reception is from 5:00-7:30 and the exhibit runs through June 19th.


  1. Simply beautiful. I am amazed at all the little things I see that just make this so right. Love the brushwork, colors are fabulous and fresh. Sweet shadow, reflected light and highlights are spot on. Love this!!

  2. This is lovely and fresh, Karen, so nice!

  3. Your Gala painting is luscious. Very nice. Have fun with Lisa and the workshop. Her work is beautiful as well.
