Inspiration... is on the wall

Van Gogh Museum atrium, Amsterdam. Photo by Karen Muntean.In 2013 when I was in Amsterdam, I saw this projection in the atrium of the Van Gogh Museum.  My feeling was that the inspiration behind the projection was the energy of Van Gogh's brushstrokes. 

I have been working on some paintings using this projection as my inspiration.

Of Fables and Myths

I'm very pleased to announce an art show that invites you all to come celebrate with me on Saturna. This APRIL 25, 2015 marks the opening of an exhibit of my paintings at the Saturna Café. The collection, entitled Of Fables and Myths, will run from April 25 to July 9. You can view it whenever you stop into the café. The show was curated by Jean-François Renaud, whom I so enjoyed meeting. He has my gratitude for organizing these lovely events at Saturna, making them special celebrations that involve the community. Along with the art-fest reception on April 25 from 4 to 6 pm, you can also take pleasure in  a dinner feast by Hubertus at 6:30 pm (by reservation).

As a part-time resident of Saturna for many years (travelling back and forth from Vancouver), I look forward to this opportunity to have my paintings shown in such a welcoming setting. I hope to share a toast with you at the opening. And I especially hope you enjoy the paintings on display!
