'Spring' oil painting
Original oil painting on wood. 23"x23"
This painting was inspired by Vivaldi's, Four Seasons. This painting was inspired by spring. He wrote a poem to go with each season although this doesn't directly depict this poem it is inspired by the music, the poem and how I feel during this time of year. I also painted this in the spring . I'm also painting summer, fall and winter.
After peeling down the entire onion of Karen Ann Jones, what I found was ‘Karen the painter.’ The same person I was when I was 5. I never changed, I only left who I was for a while. I paint because that is who I am. Being my most authentic me is my true integrity.
My goal in my work is to express my optimistic, happy, in love with life, quirky, deep, intimate and passionate perspective of life.
I choose my painting by recreating a visual of the feelings I am havening at that moment. I get to spend personal time with that passionate feeling that I long to experience. This is probably why I don’t paint a painting in one day. I want to linger in that relationship.
