“My focus on animals in each painting reflects my love, respect and concern for the natural world. The combination of intensity, softness and in-the-moment way in which they live their lives is inspiring. I feel that the combination of portraying these beings in vivid ‘non-local’ colors and with sensitivity allows the viewer to approach their soulfulness with greater ease. One can simultaneously be compassionate and delighted.” – Karen Ahlgren

41 years living and working with horticulture seeds.
My paintings point upwards, balanced between earth and sky, tangible forms in nature and esoteric mysteries. These paintings are recognizable objects in nature that have been stripped down to a simplified geometric outline, without detail, to convey the spirit of the form. (more…)

The time I spend creating is a form of meditation and the pieces I create are evidence of time well spent in communion with my self. I have taken to playing in all sorts of mediums; from the rendering of the figure, to landscapes, abstractions in wood, stone and metal and most recently mosaics. I look forward to sharing them with you. (more…)

From these images, painted primarily in Chicago, came the dayscape Gouache paintings of Chicago, Portland and other cities.

Thru the mediative process of painting, I have become aware of the power of visual language. Therefore each painting is carefully constructed with the highest regard for the viewer as I step aside and allow spirit to come into beautiful form. The concept of each painting begins with the first layer of the painting. After which many layers of pigments are suspended in resin, oil and wax. Each new layer has a reflective, translucent quality allowing the underpainting to show thru while taking on a new discovery in its form. After applying (and removing) translucent and layers, a painting builds to a point of completion and is ready to be shared and viewed.
I believe in the power of beauty and hope you too will always experience beauty on your journey. (more…)
