Karen Powell - Oil
The artist's inspiration comes from being in the beautiful creation of the outside world, especially when surrounded by trees and lakes. "Although my oil paintings cover many subjects, the love of the outdoors definitely shows in the majority of my work. I create oil paintings of the natural landscape and wildlife." Powell's use of color, light and composition assists the viewer to experience the sense of wonder and awe in the natural world by allowing them to escape to that place portrayed in the painting.
