Welcome to Karen Millar Kendall Art! I invite you to take a stroll through my collections, read my blog, and peruse the sale items in the shop. You will find moments in nature captured on canvas, in oil, with a blended palette knife technique. Palette knife is used almost exclusively to lay down color and blend; creating interesting patterns, color and textures for those who enjoy bold art with bold structure. Although abstract in nature, my paintings will remind you of places you’ve been, or desire to visit; they will evoke a visceral response, and invite you to take a journey outside yourself. Take a stroll through my website, and enjoy nature's beauty as you connect to it in your own personal way.
WORK IN PROGRESS
One of the things I would like to do is begin to share more often the process of my creative endeavors. The first work was inspired when a visitor to the art space was admiring my Yosemite NP painting, but was wishing there was a Utah NP - when asked if I had painted any of the Utah national parks, I was a little taken aback when I realized that I had not! I live in Utah, with our 5 national parks, and hadn't painted a single one! Well, naturally, I decided I would do just that. This is the Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park. The second piece is inspired by a photo from Park City photographer Patrick Brandenburg. I loved the color and the lines leading up to the sky!
