the need to move,


explore and


colorful gestures


as nothing

else can.


  1. ahhhhh....
    I can just imagine the relief once you had gotten some of this out, ins spite of what pain it may cost you. Grateful for the smooth tools available to you to go with that flow...
    Love and light to you, Beautiful Karin !

  2. Oh my gosh...these emote so!!! I love the color and freedom in them; the raw expression and use of incredibly bold strokes.
    And I am sitting here cutting papers and trying to get some transfer paper made for positioning elements on two pieces--mirror images....
    I'll trade you in a minute!
    Take care my friend ♥♥♥

  11. Karen, I keep coming back to your page and the last piece - so moving. It has drawn me back several times. Love it!

  12. Your pieces are always filled with such depth.I love the sequence here. The last image is one that speaks of humble open waiting... I like it a lot.

  13. Very intense as always. Hope you are doing well Karin.:)

  14. It is so interesting to see the 'birth' of these pieces. Thanks for sharing the beginning!

  16. Feelings of release and healing.
    What a wonderful place to be.
    You are such an inspiration to me.
    Your friend in life.

  17. The bottom painting, surrender.

    You remain in my thoughts and prayers!

  18. I can see and feel the movement in these - makes me want to just let go. I think I'm going to try and put more emotion and movement into my work - thanks, loved this post.

  19. Karin--I'm in awe at your power to put yourself at the service of your feelings; to become a conduit allowing the feelings to travel through you and arrive in a pure state on the paper. Muy buena!

  20. These sacred marks are so powerful.... I can almost reach out to touch you. You are so loved. Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

  21. I love your artwork. In this set, I am particularly attracted to number four.
