Demo by Artist Karen Harris | Oils and Palette Knife



OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Lake Granbury Art Association
Meeting and Artist Demo

Monday, June 11th at 7pm
Shanley House Gallery
Demo By: Dallas Artist Karen Harris | oils and palette knife

Harris grew up in NYC in a loving, warm environment. Harris states that “Color has always been a big part of my life.”  She reminisces about her mom leaving her in the candy aisle of the grocery store while she shopped. Was it the candy or was it the colors and shapes that always fascinated her? She really doesn’t know, she just remembers the times in that candy aisle with joy in her heart. “

Harris has painted on and off all of her life, using a variety of mediums from watercolor, acrylics and oils. However, her favorite is oils, that’s where her true passion lies. She loves the vibrancy and the smell, how smoothly and easily she can pack it on the canvas. Harris figures if it’s good enough for the Masters, then it’s certainly good enough for her.

Georgia O’Keeffe has always been an inspiration to Harris.  She loves the quote by O’Keeffe,
“I found that I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.”  That is how Harris feels about her own paintings.  She is able to create vivid, powerful effects with the oils she has grown so passionate about. She loves to recreate the beauty surrounding her on canvas. People have compared some of her art work to Monet by which she is extremely flattered.

Although Harris has done a variety of things in her life, from being a mom of two, a grandmother of five, being President of the PTA, and holding varies Realtor Sales positions. She is living proof that no matter what age, it is absolutely possible to achieve a dream.  In the spring of 2016, Harris completed her first art show.  She was so excited that she couldn’t sleep the night before. She was really excited when her art sold. Her art is now prominently featured in numerous homes not only throughout Texas but across the country.  Harris hopes you enjoy her paintings as much as she enjoys creating them!
