I have been having computer trouble this week  annoying to say the least!! I have a new photo editing program as well... it's all about adapting!
This is from one of my holiday photos taken in Sydney earlier this year...I like the chimneys and TV aerials on these Terrace House rooftops  and among all the grey... one was painted red!


  1. Nice rhythms Karen.
    Happy Painting!

  2. I think I'm back online now and hoping you too have solved your tech is soooo frustrating! Now to this painting- wow! such a creative view and beautifully done. This look up and into the sky is geometric poetry!

  3. A good place to muse on oil painting in Western art history online, I find, is at this site at There is a huge
    archive of digital images of artwork now housed in art museums around the world.

    The company makes canvas prints and hand-painted, oil painting reproductions to order, from your selection of images
    from this big archives.

    It's some resource for art lovers and historians. There are many images of works by famous artists of the past that I have
    never seen.

    From their home page at, you can browse by the hundreds of artists there, movements in art, art media,
    historical timeline and even by subject matter. There is much biographical information about the artists.

    I am always fascinated by the way the 19th century English landscape painter, William Turner, used layers of luminous
    oil paint to recreate his blazing landscapes. Clicking http://
    , I find his paintings indexed in a floating 3D gallery at the site.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts and comments, I love reading them...they keep me inspired!
