SHOWOFF Canopy Featured Artist: Karen SuttonFree Shipping on all orders above $1,300
Karen Sutton is a representational painter whose subject matter includes still life, florals and landscapes. She cites painting on location in the plein air tradition and working directly from life "alla prima" in her studio as the most powerful aids in her growth as a painter. Primarily a still life painter using the chiaroscuro method, she also paints landscapes and seascapes which reflect the influence of the tonalist/luminist movement.
A favorite quote comes from Charles W. Hawthorne, who established the Cape Cod School of Art in the late 1800s: "The job of the artist is to show the world the beauty in the mundane."
