Prairie Evensong is one of my favorite paintings in the exhibition. It was just recently added to the show.
The light at twilight here in Florida is just glorious and I love to paint that time of day.
Just three more weekends to see the show.  And don't forget to come out and enjoy the artsy community of Melrose during Melrose Art Walk,  March 1 from 6 to 9 pm.
Have a great weekend.

The View From the Easel has been held over until Sunday, March 10, 2013 and the gallery will be open for Melrose Art Walk on
Friday, March 1 from 6 to 9 PM, so you have a few more weekends to catch the exhibit.
I want to thank those who have come out to see the show and have given me such lovely comments. And, to the old and new collectors for their enthusiastic support of my painting journey. Thank you! Each time a painting finds a new home, I have been replacing it with a new piece. Very exciting.

Melrose Bay Art Gallery is a lovely cooperative gallery just a hop, skip and jump away from Gainesville. So come on out and discover it's charm.
And if you have not visited my web site, I hope you will take a peek. Here's the link

Imagine Gallery
Franklin, TN
So delighted that my oil painting Ain't Nothin But a Hound Dog has been juried into the Women Painter's of the Southeast 2013 Exhibition.
Imagine Gallery in Franklin, TN will host the preview and award event on April 19th and 20th. I am just so honored to be exhibiting with150 amazing women artists!

The response to my show Karen F. Rose The View From the Easel at Melrose Bay Art Gallery has been just fantastic. Several paintings have gone home with new collectors.
I received a lovely write up and picture in the Lake Region Monitor newspaper (thank you Dan Hildebran) and a picture of my painting "The Sentinel" in the Scene section of the Gainesville Sun. I think Andy Warhol had a saying about publicity!

Thank you so much to each and everyone who has come out to Melrose to see the exhibit. My heart is just overflowing with the positive comments I have received from so many of you.
There is a possibility the exhibit will be held over...I'll keep you posted.
