Artist Spotlight - Karen Appleton

I discovered Karen Appleton almost a year ago when I first started oil painting.  I was looking for some inspiration online, and somehow her worked popped up in google.  And I'm so glad it did!


Perhaps you remember that adorable little present with the skull and crossbones wrapping paper from last weeks Get Inspired post?  Yep, that's a Karen Appleton!


So I took a trip over to her blog and found many more presents!  And learned about her Present and Accounted For Project.  It's one of the best things I've ever heard!  She sends present all over the world, and the recipients take a photo and pass them on.  (I'm thinking I would like to put in a request for a present myself!)

Also on her blog, she provides some insight into her creative process.  I'm so impressed by her ability to create such fresh and elegant images!


I would love to receive one of these beautiful packages (what IS inside??), but her paintings are absolutely stunning!

Artist Spotlight - Cari Humphry

I've had this pig saved in my pinterest for quite a while now.  I've always loved how he looks so soft and lovable, but he's really a stinky little pig.

Well, come to find out, this painting that I love was done by Cari Humphry - a local Arkansas artist from Fayetteville!

I just love her loose, bold strokes.  And her paintings, though many are of cows or chickens or even tomatoes, feel so fresh!

I especially love this dog with his goggles.  I figure he's probably getting ready to fly his plane over to Razorback Stadium to see the Hogs play!

And the movement of these boys jumping in the water is great!

Cari has an etsy shop, a blog, and website!  Go get inspired by her work!
