Welcome to the Online Art Gallery of Karen Kennedy
Fox Fountain Our Game Camera sits on the patio pointed toward this solar fountain. Living in the foothills, we get some exciting pictures of animals. Most recently there have been many pictures of foxes, both day and night shots. I was intrigued that some actually jumped up on the fountain while others were reaching to get a drink. I chose a 30" x 40" canvas and three photos to compose this oil painting. To see the development of this painting click here

Artist Comment--> It is light that visually defines shapes as having three dimensions, and light that creates a mood and determines the values of color - dark or light - muted or brilliant. My enchantment is in the judging of these fleeting color changes and then translating them into my subjects. This process, enhanced by my emotional response and a colorful palette, supports the works as they evolve through thoughtful brushstrokes.
Thank you for sharing your time with me.
