Landscape Inspiration / by Karen Matheis

My newest painting, "Field with White House" is now on view at Blue Gallery in Kansas City, Missouri.  

Inspiration for this painting came from a photograph.  The photograph was taken by a friend while she was visiting Medellin, Columbia. The photograph captures an interesting perspective of a hilly cityscape. When composing my painting, I subtracted the buildings and trees, and transformed the cityscape into fields.
