Welcome to the Online Art Gallery of Karen Kennedy
Inspiration for new paintings is all around me. An exceptional lighting effect always intriques me or it could be a person's pose or activity. I am fortunate to live in a place where I can study and paint animals in their natural environment. When I travel I am delighted with the new scenery and by the people I meet. My camera and sketchbook fill up quickly. Always, it is my emotional response to these things in my life that challenges me to create a piece of art.
"Mountain Lion Watch" Karen Kennedy
"Mountain Lion Watch" is a 30" X 40" oil painting on canvas, custom framed in classic antique gold. On your afternoon walk, you suddenly realize you are being watched by this relaxed yet very alert mountain lion. Though very exciting - I am grateful it is not a common occurance. For this composition I selected a large canvas to portray the majesty of the watching mountain lion enjoying the late afternoon sun on this snowy hillside.
