Underpinnings

Underpinnings by Karen Gadient, 2015

Pretty much a doodle gone crazy. Okay, many layers of doodles. Every now and then, I do some ‘art therapy’ to let my mind wander and relax, just for myself and not for prints―this is one of those. :)

Hape a great week!

TGIF: Relative Proximity

Relative Proximity by Karen Gadient, 2015

Another “FingerPaintingFriday” from me: painted with my fingers and nails using watercolor and a little bit of gouache. Lots of nail scraping here.

Enjoy your weekend, friends!

Between the Skies

Between the Skies by Karen Gadient, 2015

It’s “FingerPaintingFriday” again! This one was created with pearlescent watercolor as the base with some regular watercolor on top. I used my fingernails as much as my fingertips, which I think lends a nice effect. To keep the lines clean, I wiped off the nail between scrapes―which also helped when finally scrubbing my nails clean when I was done!

Enjoy your weekend, friends. :)

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!

My fourth “FingerPaintingFriday”: all graphite, no color this time. Created with my fingertips and Viarco’s ARTGRAF watercolour graphite. I picked up a pan of it while David and I were in Tucson last weekend and I’ve been doing mostly landscapes―but it’s also wonderful for abstract work, even with fingers.

Enjoy your weekend, friends. :)

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.
