A Peek into the Gallery

A couple of days ago I had a inquiry for one of my sunflower paintings.

This collector lives far away from here, and couldn’t remember exactly the painting she was interested in purchasing. My daughter just happened to be working at the gallery that day and sent me this picture to refresh her memory. Thought I would share it here and give you a peek into the gallery. 🙂

There are more paintings on my website karinnaylorpaintings.com

Feeling Peachy :)

I’ve been really busy in the gardens these past months, amending soil, planting seeds, making new garden beds, and hoping for a great harvest this summer. All to say that it hasn’t left me with a lot of energy to paint, but I have had some great sales at the gallery, so I thought I’d share a few…

Peachy SOLD

Speaking of peachy… I have a beautiful peach tree in my back yard. Unfortunately, it usually blossoms out, and then we have a freeze and consequently no peaches. But this year we did not have that last freeze, and I am eagerly anticipating a wonderful harvest of peaches!!! Can’t get more peachy than that, can you? 🙂

Last year I planted a lot of Dahlias, then overwintered the tubers. I’m hoping for a good year of Dahlias again this year. This next painting of one of my dahlias is a small one 5″ x 7″ surrounded by a beautiful ornate gold frame that I had stored away in my studio.

Dahlia SOLD

And a couple of minis… SOLD

And some cards… SOLD

It has been a good month. Hope you all are having a blessed month as well.

As the weather gets hotter here, I’m planning on spending a good amount of time in my studio working on those back alley paintings and whatever else inspires at the moment. But for now you will find me out gardening…

On my way to our local garden center Terra Cotta to buy some plants for my porch pots. 🙂

Happy gardening everyone, get some sunshine and dirt on those hands… it’s good for your health.

My Largest Painting at the Gallery

How many of you have been to Trader Joe’s? How many of you love Trader Joe’s flowers? This next painting is of a bouquet of flowers from Trader Joe’s… The vase belongs to my daughter Sage who absolutely loves the store and most likely bought the flowers for me. The vase and flowers combined make up the subject of this large floral painting.

I thought I would update this blog with several posts of paintings that are now available at G Gallery and Glass Studio in Guthrie, Oklahoma.

Hope you enjoyed this series. I had so much fun painting these with my daughter as a model. She actually did get slightly bitten by a copperhead snake, but not at this time. I say slightly because it only grazed her skin and she only had minor swelling. Still scary…

Which one do you like best?

Exciting News…

A gallery in the town near me is going to take some of my paintings…

3 bouquet

This is one of them. I discussed pricing with her and she told me that all my paintings should now be priced at gallery prices. This surprised me, but I understand that it is only fair to the gallery presenting your paintings, so that the prices are consistent. I learned a lot visiting with her. A really great experience… and like I said…very exciting for me. 🙂
