Festive Colors

Festive Colors by Karen Gadient, 2017

Festive Colors. Gouache and digital mixed media.

Hope you’ve been having a lovely holiday season, no matter how you celebrate. I’ll be taking a holiday break, so Happy New Year to you, as well! ❤

A cup of ale,
A merry tale
Of days of olden time,
And Christmas good cheer
To wind up the year
With glad frolic, and fun, and glee.
― Henry James Slack, “Winter’s Song”

  5. Hi Karen! Wow!!!! I’m a digital artist. I’ve pretty much quit telling people this because their first reaction is that I can’t be producing “real” art. I made a decision last summer to give away 99% of my lifetime of collected brushes, pens, and supplies and go 100% digital. I paint in Corel Painter like you or else on my iPad Pro. When I show people what I do, they can’t believe I do it on a computer. I’m so glad to have found you mixing real media and digital. You have a wide range of fascinating art.

    I’m in the process of trying to merge my painting with my photography.

    I look forward to seeing more of your work.

    Last year we remodeled our home. I got to do very little art. I’m so excited for 2018.

    • Hi Kerry! Nice to meet you! I tried entirely digital art for a year or two, then went back to traditional mediums, and now I combine both (via scanning and Photoshop, the digital elements done mostly in Painter or on my iPad with Procreate or ArtRage). I like your work and will follow your blog. Happy 2018!
