"Art Spectrum Magazine" Ethereal Landscape Oil Paintings

Karen Keil Brown, Discovers a delicate balance between earth and sky, realism and abstraction, In this currant body of work Karen captures the essence and tranquility of nature with a sense of internal energy. As forested mountainsides are cloaked in a muted depth of mist and shadow, Brown focuses our vision on a moment of serenity, revealing an elemental and transcendent dance between atmosphere and light. Brown paints with an intuitive and softly expressive brushstroke, distilling the ever-changing face of the landscape with an ethereal immediacy.

“I paint on canvas maintaining the meditative freedom and breath of my signature style as I work in either medium. I usually paint in my studio using photos from my outdoor experiences to inspire my work, not to dictate the outcome of the painting . I like to free up my imagination to provide unexpected opportunities for a more creative process. I often use a dash of red within the painting to represent my internal passion for each piece.

Painting landscapes is a personal way for me to connect with the spiritual and physical forms of nature. I hope to give the viewer a feeling of peace and tranquillity . I welcome commissions, as I enjoy incorporating my style into my client's vision.
Mission Health hospital commissioned Karen to paint an 8x4 oil painting for the surgical waiting area in the new wing .
Karen supports Arts for Life, an Organization helping children and their families dealing with challenging health issues. She also donates her art work to various charities.
