Wander About

Wander About by Karen Gadient, 2018

Wander About. Digital painting.

My schedule’s changed a bit and that’s challenged my blogging habits. I’ve got two half-finished mixed media pieces that aren’t ready to share. In the meanwhile, I’ve been getting loose with some entirely digital paintings again. This is one of them, and I hope it gives you a smile. πŸ™‚ Happy February!

Fragmented Influence

Fragmented Influence by Karen Gadient, 2017

Fragmented Influence. Pastel, watercolor, ink, and digital mixed media.

I’ve been busy, so I thought having the ‘Mixed Media Monday’ prompt would help me keep up with posting to the blog. But I think I’ll just post when I can and make sure it’s at least weekly. I’ve been doing more design work and less painting but I just bought myself fresh art supplies and I know I’ll be experimenting with them, so I’ll try to share some fun stuff here. πŸ™‚

Hope you’re having a lovely April!

We live in a rainbow of chaos. ― Paul CΓ©zanne
