"Bloomfield"

6 x 6"
oil on masonite
sold

I'm almost at the end of my series ATL to NYC & Back - and I just painted one of my personal favorites. I love it when that happens.

This is quintessential Bloomfield, New Jersey - little grandma houses in old neighborhoods. I love those old homes. We met up with our car, which was parked for free while we were in New York City, said thanks to a good friend, and we were soon on our way.

This reminded me of my grandmothers house. When I was a kid I used to mow her lawn. Funny that you called these grandma houses. Fantastic. I remember thinking New Jersey had some of the same feel of the Northwest when I visited there.

A painting of a house can be boring or.. like this. What a fabulous use of values and composition!

Oh so lovely and just perfect. The house could have been in the Midwest, too.

Oh this reminds me of being a little girl in humid summers. Love it. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Karen, I admire everything you do. But what fascinates me is I can usually spot a super winner among your paintings. I can see some difference in charm level, appeal of the subject to the viewer. I'm so intrigued by this and wonder if you are aware of factors that make a painting stand out among your others. Doing your class in S.F. and can't WAIT to ask you more about this.
