    Palette knife painting directly on the canvas, in combination with a brush, because combining heavy texture that only a knife can create with applied brush transparent paint gives my work a greater feeling of depth and creates an amazing visual effect. Painted on a ¾” gallery wrapped stretched canvas and sides are painted, using highest quality artist oils. This painting would make a great addition to any art collection.

    I continue to sing the praises of Karen. Her work is colorful and expressive. She has painted two wonderful portraits of our family pets. They were point on - beautiful eyes that caught the soul and devotion of our dogs. Thank you so much Karem.

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Karen's painting of our dear dog Sevilla. She captured her spirit and her warm loving eyes. Thank you so much for this treasure.

    I wish I could leave 10 stars. Karen is an amazing artist. She is wonderful to work with. I would ABSOLUTELY want to work with her again. She is very intuitive and VERY talented. I am 100% in love with the painting she did for me. She went out of her way to make sure the painting was delivered in perfect condition. If you are a fan of knife painting, you won't do better than Karen Tarlton.
