Colorful View from the Water

Colorful View from the Water by Karen Gadient, 2015

While organizing my files, I discovered a wider version of a blue-and-white artwork I did last year and I remembered how much I liked it—so I reworked it with pretty much all the colors of the rainbow, partly from scanned watercolor. Figured I’d share the results here. Hope you’re having a great week!

Why I came here, I know not; where I shall go it is useless to inquire. In the midst of myriads of the living and the dead worlds―stars―systems―infinity―why should I be anxious about an atom?

Unsung Madness

Unsung Madness by Karen Gadient, 2015

Unsung Madness. For a print and other items, please click the image.

Well, this one was made from a bunch of scanned ink and paint squiggles, then digitally painted in Corel Painter to include halftone dots and a more pebbly texture. Tad bit chaotic, but I love the colors. Happy April!

An optimist is the human personification of spring.

Mercurial Prose

Mercurial Prose by Karen Gadient, 2015

Mercurial Prose. For a print, please click the image.

Created from scanned watercolor and ink, plus some cardboard for texture, then digital paint and color editing to bring it all together. I’ve been making lots of traditional media ‘layers’ and playing around with them to see what I can build. It’s heaps of fun. I’m also finishing an abstract painting in acrylic and a few odd things in pastel. So―I’m keeping busy!

Happy last day of March. :)

Experimental Art: ‘Color Falls’

Color Falls by Karen Gadient, 2015

Sometimes my art experiments don’t end up as I’d hoped―but they’re still colorful and interesting enough to share… so I’ll post these ‘sketchbook’ experiments for you here. This one was a mix of scanned watercolor and ink plus digital doodling. Hope you’ve been having a good March!

It’s not an experiment if you know it’s going to work. ― Jeff Bezos

Kaleidoscopes

Kaleidoscopes 1 by Karen Gadient, 2015

Since I’ve been participating in #KaleidoSaturday for a few weeks now, I figured I’d share some of those kaleidoscopes on my blog. Maybe I’ll post them here occasionally―at least the ones I think turned out best. :)

Play is the only way the highest intelligence of humankind can unfold.
