Permanence by Karen Gadient, 2015

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

Mixed media: scanned ink and pastel mixed with digital art. I’ve been playing with monochrome, duotone, and black and white, thanks to the inspiration of my dear local friend Tamara Becker. Be sure to check out her photography blog!

The universe as we know it is a joint product of the observer and the observed.

    Interesting. Why the B&W though?
    How does it come out in colour?

    This one, to me, looks like an old turntable playing cool jazz in the afternoon. (Miles or Coltrane) I can see the record, the turntable, the needle. And I can see the music. Nice work.

  3. Karen, this is quite a change from your usual vibrant colors! I like this. It’s very interesting. Lots going on in it.

  4. Great black’n white artwork, I love it!

  5. Beautiful artwork…can almost feel the texture!

  6. Haven’t seen you around. Hope you’re doing well!

  7. Even though this is black and white or charcoal and white I really love this, it’s very inviting to look at. πŸ™‚ You managed to resist adding colour with this one! πŸ˜‰

  8. Oh Karen, such a lovely compliment that I’m inspiring you! Not sure how I missed reading this….have been having quite a few off days lately.

  9. The quote is wonderful but the artwork is even better πŸ™‚
