It's beginning to feel like fall in northwest Iowa. I rebelled and went out to the garden this morning to pick tomatoes, green beans, and summer squash. Yea for summer. What would a painting with one green bean (solo) look like? I'll need to consider that.
In the meantime, here's proof that I have not been sitting around doing nothing. The accompanying review is from "Home Turf Media, Around Des Moines". The review is written by M.R. Field who covered the Valley Junction Art Market in West Des Moines on September 16th. the entire article is available at http://www.hometurfmedia.com/.
"Karen Cooper took several design courses in college and her training in fashion and textile design shows in her paintings. She uses a limited palette of six colors and the result is an impression of cheerful light. She enjoys painting people but it is the draping of cloth and the flow of seams that really stand out. "
Have a great day!
