Sweet Tooth

Happy 2011!  

I was selected to be featured on ArtSlant Chicago this week.  I am thrilled!  Click HERE for ArtSlant's home page, and you will see my link under the News & Buzz section.  

If I didn't paint, I think I would want to be a baker ... here's to a year of unlimited possibilities!

Gorgeous Karen, it looks like you could eat the chocolate ribbon and love how high it is layered. Gorgeous as always. Hope you paint dozens of these gift wrapped creations in the New Year. One a month?
Happy new Year ! XO

Simply gorgeous!

I'm stopping by from Lisa's. What a thrill to be introduced to your beautiful talent.


Lisa said...

Dear Karen,
I am delighted to hear from you!
I thoroughly enjoyed spending a nice long time reading your blog over the holidays. Not only do I love your artistry, I am fascinated by the way in which you approach those gorgeous wrappings!
I discovered you via my dear friend Sande Chase.
As you know Sande and you both have a "gift" for recognizing the beauty of giving to others.
I tell you, I was so excited for the new year because I knew I would take my reader's breath away with your work. Thank you again for giving me the opportunity.
I wish you all the best, and I'm salivating over this little beauty!
It was my pleasure to do so.
