Art Description

Painting: Oil on Steel.

30X36 inches, oil painting on 1/4 inch steel.
This painting has studs on the back with a wire for hanging. It does not need a frame. Painted in 2014 by me, artist Karen Jones.

This is the second painting of a series of paintings I'm calling 'Queens'.

I think artists are royalty. Also like in chess, queens have the ability to maneuver through all cultures and societies without boundaries.

I think the only reason they are not celebrities is because their art doesn't make other people boat loads of money like actors and athletes do.
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 having 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.
