That's so true -you grow in a second when you leave home.

Karen, Do you just do one of these every day? How do you come up with the picture matched to the description...does it just occur to you? I'm just wondering because these are phenomenal!! Love, O

Really like the texture to your pieces and the use of the text playing in the backgrounds...

I cannot believe the speed at which you are turning these great pieces of art out now. You are on a roll woman!

Go, go go.

No arms today. Always something missing. Wonder what this means?

A thought-provoking idea and presented so interestingly.

Julie said...

This is another great piece, Karen!

Cathy said...

Love it Karen - great, unique style, and I LOVE your use of colour and materials!

Maddy said...

I know what you mean, in some ways. Now I find that I don't fit in 'at home' nor 'this home.'
Cheers

Love this one.

OH! I've been meaning to tell you. I found success with your emulsion transfer technique of some months ago. I've been playing with this interesting process for MONTHS, but my experimental combos of paper and acrylic met with typically lackluster/high-maintenance results.

Following your process to the letter worked as well as I'd ever dreamed. Thanks!!

What a great match between the descriptive sentence and the picture. I really like the bold, simple colors.
