It is the juxtaposition of light that inspires Karen’s realistic works. Each painting is an individual mental puzzle to be worked through. Combining realistic detail with the imagery created by color and light gives each painting a life of its own. Her miniatures offer a microscopic view of the broader vision surrounding us. Painting in Maine presents an ongoing drama of incredible landscapes and seascapes in just about any weather imaginable.
“Some would argue that a painting, just by being a painting, is automatically abstracted to a small degree, no matter how hyper-realistic it is. My work falls on the abstraction scale somewhere, sure, but where doesn’t matter to me.”

In all of my work, the light is critical to the feeling. After taking photographs on walks around her neighborhood or local trails, she returns to her studio. This is where the magic happens. Starting with a dark canvas or negative space, she builds up by adding light. The result is a stained glass image that is both abstract and representational.
“I get inspiration from many sources, including the changing colors, patterns, and atmospheres of the landscape around me and the random idea generator that is my imagination. In each painting, I am searching for an elegant balance of spare compositions over large fields of luminous color. When observing everyday subjects such as shells, I try to pay attention to the small spaces between them and the abstract patterns created by their characteristic colors.” -Ellen Welch Granter.
I try to capture, in birds, for instance, either the subject’s extreme stillness (a heron fishing) or it’s opposite. I find the best way to express a bird’s edginess on a limb or briskness in flight is by rough, almost blurred outlines, similar to a sketch, rather than smooth finishes.
