I’m painting what I love, what grabs my attention and makes me pause. Mornings and evenings are particularly inspirational because colors can be intensified, and light can make the ordinary interesting.

Karen Bruson

Breezy Day 12×12
Packe UP 10×20
I am inspired by the way light falls upon a subject, casting rich dark shadows, and I aspire to simplify the nuances within those darks. Starting with a luminous, warm ground, I seek to create a vibration of color by using compliments and deliberately leaving some areas untouched.

Guest Artist Heather Fountain

Glass Vessel 1
Glass Vessel 2
Glass Vessel 3
Glass Vessel 4

The glass woven vessels are constructed from individual pulled strands of glass that are laid down one at a time in five layers to create the woven appearance. Each vessel is constructed from 1000+ individual strands of glass. Colors are chosen, overlapped, and interlaced to create varied interests of color. The heat from a kiln is used at a specific temperature to allow the piece to become solid yet maintain the texture of the fabric, including a raw salvaged edge, which you find on raw cloth. Some pieces even contain an element that looks like a pulled thread. It took the artist five years to develop this technique, allowing her to create the essence of flowing cloth in the breeze out of a solid, sharp material.
