This week at Brush-Paper-Water...


Generations
watercolor, 17" x 13"

Kaaren Oreck

What started out as a quick second peek at the TWSA show last summer became a wonderful two-hour tour when I met Kaaren Oreck in the gallery. Her warmth and wit, coupled with her experienced artist's eye, made for a very lively conversation about art as we worked our way through the show.

Through her travels, she has found inspiration for her work from many sources -- and her current paintings based on Japanese themes represent both the simplicity and the complexity of traditional Japanese art.

Please jump over to Brush-Paper-Water to see more of Kaaren's work.

  2. Great imagery! The box of crayons is a great touch, and magical in its realism. She sounds like a really fun, fascinating artist.

  5. Hi Kaaren -- I wish I were going to be there too!! Just wasn't in the cards this year -- not the first rejecto letter in my career, but it's always disappointing.
