In Progress


Very fun to experiment over the last few days. I'm not sure where I'm headed with this--I don't want totally realistic--want to keep some of what makes my girls look like 'my girls' (if there even is such a thing).

This is fun. She looks like she could be a bathing beauty from the 30ies with her sun umbrella.

She is a woman of her own - as I see each of your women are of their own but distinctly yours. Great work!

I like her, I like all your women. I love that the text is coming through.

Lynn said...

Wow, she has personality plus... love her eyes...not to worry, just keep doing what you are doing...they can evolve it's okay.
Wonderful.

Olivia said...

Yes, it's your signature style that has something to do with the eyes and the arrangement of the face---all of the emotion on the face. I agree with Lynn, though, I think that as you evolve it will stay as your style just because you're going it. I also agree with Lee that the text coming through is nice. But you know me and words :)

xo, O

OMG, Karen!!! I've been out of touch with your work for a couple of weeks and ... I'm nearly speechless. (nearly)

These last few pieces have such interesting new character! I am in AWE. Don't worry about struggling with the next one ... it's like working through the bones of a musical piece ... you get the rich result by picking it apart and working it out.

You are really a fantastic artist (and a great person, too.) Don't beat yourself up over the bumps in the road. They may just jiggle something wonderful loose.

Interesting, I came back to see this again and did not recall the printing behind the woman! Oy, hope that doesn't mean my memory is starting to go...but I did remember her and her soulful eyes.
